And I kept saying no. Yoga was weird and not a real workout... .
My physical symptom's increased, leaving me drained and sleeping for hours during the day. The left side of my body would go numb for hours at a time. The big eye opener was when one day at the store with my baby, my eye sight completely disappeared. My eyes were open, but I suddenly couldn't see. I sat down right where I was and just kept my hands on the stroller scared out of my mind. After about 5 minutes it slowly came back, but was fuzzy for sure awhile. I called my husband and he immediately called the Dr. I knew I needed help, and I knew it would put me out of my comfort zone...
Finally, I went to a therapist... And that yoga class. I had never pictured myself doing yoga. It seemed too simple, like it was for pregnant people or seniors. But, after trying the class I was intrigued. I didn't feel pressured to be more than who I showed up as that day. But it made me want to be more.
After attending only that class every week for a few months I decided to add another workout day to my week, then soon another and then another. I started to see purpose and good in my life. I started to feel capable and even strong. I had something to get excited about. I had goals, and discipline. I ate healthier, because I felt healthier. My mood SLOWLY lifted and after delivering my 3rd daughter, my chronic pain was 80% gone.
I have the biggest testament of how physical activity and eating right can help your body beat so many things that are thrown at it. I love getting sweaty and dirty from all kinds of workouts. But yoga, teaches me to better my mind at the same time, which I need. Which I love.🙏 #outdoorwomen #yogapractice #practiceandalliscoming #fitspo #inspiredyogis #outdooryoga #yogaeverydamnday #chronicpain #yogapose #workout #getoutside #yogaaddict #yogalove #fitmom #beautiful #inversion #igyoga #yogamom #radgirlslife #summer #yogateacher #lifelessons #wanderlust #fitness #depression #workhard #lds #yoga #yogapants
Being new parents really does rock in so many ways. At 21 months, @SofiePhoenix is full of curiosity and confidence. There is so much wonderment in her eyes. Every morning she wakes up with clear determination, rolling out of bed, sleepy eyed, wild hair.. she’ll gather her dolls in both arms and say ‘outside’. She loves exploring, climbing on everything 🤦🏽♀ and she loves water 💦 of any kind - ocean, lakes, baths, rain, puddles - all of it! Her vocabulary is expanding on the daily and it’s so cute to hear her forming new words. Top 3 right now are ‘whale’, ‘penguin’ and ‘octopus’. We are falling in love with this little water baby more and more every single day.💙

Spent some time with my brother on the phone this evening. He was on his way to play tennis by himself. Laughing about life, the irony of it all. He told me about his happy cloud, where nobody can really mess things up, he is flying high. I was like ah yes the happy cloud, where it feels just so damn good. The more I do yoga, the more I'm around Yogi's, the more I immerse myself into the culture, the mindset, the more I'm really feeling this cloud. Like ah yeah, I'm here, barefoot, sipping on some savasana and listening to my body tell me, "Emily move your body here, this is what it wants, this is who it wants, this is what it doesn't want, this is who it doesn't want." Once you begin to feel yummy in your limbs, your navel, your breasts, your shoulders, you begin to recognize when you feel yummy in the outside world. You are better at shutting out the outside world that makes you feel un-yummy, and seeking the fairy creatures that are out there. Rather they be human like you, or Bambi's, or Rudolph's, or giant oak trees, or little humans with little fingers and little toes, no, I don't want to come down from this cloud. It's nice up here. I think I'll stay. Yes yes, I'll stay. #grapefruitoil #essentialoils #oillife #selflove #yogini #allnatural #doterralife #yogapose #freedom #keepgoing #yogi #authenticliving #lovingyoga #lovedoterra #truth #veganlife #yogalife #create #creativewriting #doterra #liveyourbestlifenow #plantbaseddiet #transformation #authenticlife #liveyourbestlife #livingyoga #loveoils
Though yoga seems like a fountain of spirituality, it's not associated with any organized religion. Burning incense and chanting mantras are optional. Yoga is a down-to-earth (pun intended) and secular discipline joyfully practiced all over the world by Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Christians, Muslims, atheists, agnostics, and others. Yes, yoga originated in ancient India, but it's not a form of Hinduism. In fact, historians have concluded that yoga predated Hinduism by about 3,500 years. Yoga has no sacred scriptures, no fixed canon, no rigid dogma, no Savior, and no prophets. The fact that the word "religion" derives from the Latin word "religare" ("to bind"), while on the other hand yoga is a re-engineering pursuit (to improve the body, understand the mind and free the spirit) says it all. The only sacred place of worship in yoga is your own body. Savor your practice! #asanalogy #yogaeverydamnday #wearableart #yogainspiration #yolo #yogapose #yoga #yogaforall #yogajourney #healthylifestyle #yogalife
