YogaOne is a manifestation of sharing and giving back.   I developed sciatica in 2006.  Undoubtedly the pain was an outcropping of 25 years of teaching fitness classes, running, and overall pounding of my back, hips, ankles and feet with no regard to a complimentary flexibility program.  After orthopedic doctors, medications, acupuncture, and various other attempts at healing……the pain began to dissipate.  So I went back to my running and weight-lifting routines thinking that more was better.  I lifted more, I ran farther and faster….moving into my midlife years with a fitness vengeance.

 

In 2010, the pain returned…………but this time so severely that I could not drive, sit or sleep.  I spent my nights writhing around in bed…. wishing I could cut off my own leg to make the pain go away.  I ended up back at the orthopedic doctor and was diagnosed with a herniated disk in my back, sciatica, AND hip bursitis.  I was sent to rehab and was told that I may end up being the youngest hip replacement candidate they have ever seen-----unless I make some serious life changes.

 

After the shock and denial started to wear off,  I bought a yoga book.  I started doing some yoga postures at home.  I bought three DVDs and a second yoga book.  I started taking yoga classes locally at any place I could find a class.  Some classes I loved, some I didn’t.  I purchased my own yoga mat.  I fell on it.  I tried again and fell a second, third and fourth time.  I cried.  I laughed.  But I kept trying.  I did nothing else but yoga….no running…no weight training….just  yoga.  I came home from work at lunchtime to get my yoga practice in.  I woke up early and did yoga before work. I felt calmer.  My type-A personality was less important.  I lived for that day, not the next day. .  I do not know when the pain left my body, nor did I care.   I healed.  I grew.  I let go.

 

In September of 2011 I knew that I needed to help someone else.  I needed to share yoga and it’s healing power.  I researched hundreds of yoga teaching options---I chose YogaFit.   I loved the safety of the program, its’ West Coast roots, the privilege of studying yoga with multiple Master Trainers, and it’s capacity to bring real yoga to real people in a non-judgmental and soothing environment.  Five states, eight cities, eleven Master Trainers, and 12 certifications—all led to my designation as a Registered Yoga Teacher by August of 2012.  I have since decided to make yoga my life's work, and in November of 2012 began studying towards my RYT 500 designation.  I am currently 410 hours  (almost there) into that program (similar to a "Masters Degree" in Yoga) 

 

YogaOne is my way of giving back.  I invite you to the studio for a Free class.  Everyone should try yoga at least one time in their lifetime.  Yoga is truly a life-changing experience and one that I will cherish and practice for the rest of my life.  Perhaps it is time to give something back to yourself.  Learn to love yourself again.  Give yourself this wonderful gift of yoga.

 

Love,

Vicki
