YogaOne is a
manifestation of sharing and giving back.
In 2006 I developed sciatica.
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
stretching or 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 walk
around the shopping mall. I could not
sleep at night, spent my nights writhing around in bed…. and considered cutting 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 my 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. Three states, six cities,
seven Master Trainers, and 12 certifications—all led to my designation as a Registered
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 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.
