Weave this beautiful practice into your daily life

We all encounter obstacles in life.  As a mother to a child that uses a wheelchair, life has presented its share of unforeseen challenges for me and my family.  By the time my daughter was 8 years old, the repetitive task of lifting and carrying her and her equipment was taking a toll on my body.  At the age of 40, I was experiencing chronic pain in my hip and feared I would not be able to keep up with the physical requirements of being her mom as she, and I, got older.  Thankfully, I turned to yoga 7 years ago and discovered a whole new sense of balance and wellness.  As I dove deeper into my practice, I began to notice greater flexibility and strength in my entire body.  Best of all, I no longer had the aching pain in my hip!  I now enjoy all the physical aspects of a regular yoga practice, as well as, yoga’s ability to calm the mind, rejuvenate the spirit and help balance life.  As a teacher, I look forward to weaving similar benefits of this beautiful practice into the daily lives of others, whatever obstacles they may face.
