When I was pregnant with my first child, I wanted to do something for my body. But workout options were limited so I decided to try prenatal yoga.
I’ll never forget my first class. When I walked out, I was so energized yet mentally relaxed. I had wondered why I never tried yoga seriously before then! My daughter is now almost 6 and I don’t remember the day that I missed my yoga class!
Yoga didn’t only help me with my pregnancy, it also helped me avoid a serious operation.
After my pregnancy, I had a nasal deviation which the doctors said I’d need surgery for. I did not feel mentally prepared for such a surgery, so I took up Pranayama breathing techniques. After 6 months, the doctor told me that the operation was no longer needed!
After seeing my results, I believed in the power of yoga and wanted to spread the benefit of yoga to others.
In 2017, I began a Teacher Training Certificate program to deepen my knowledge but I wasn’t totally sure I wanted to actually teach. I still worked in finance but I realized that through Yoga, I was doing something that I really wanted to do. When my TTC was about to finish, my close friends approached me to start teaching a yoga class.
So I began teaching. Shortly afterwards, one of my students told me that my yoga classes had changed her life. She had severe depression yet she always started to smile and feel positive after my classes. This was one of the best memories of my life and I knew that I was finally on the right path. Finally, I was living my truth and helping people through Yoga.
