Around January, a little after new years I looked at myself in the mirror and realized I wss almost 300 lbs. After I had told myself a year a go I would never get to 200 lbs. Weight has always been a struggle for me, I can lose it quickly but keeping it off is the challenge. I examined myself and what was making me so unhappy on the inside thst it was reflecting to the outside. I realized, I stopped putting myself first. What was something I had given up that I love? Yoga. I found a studio close to my house and made a promise to myself to go twice a week with one extra day of working out at home or having an outdoor walk. I would be mindful about what went into my body and have a support group. I can not stress enough how having people to encourage you is what helps push yourself and motivation. I still have a long way to go but for the first time, I am able to find peace within.
Wow, it’s already DAY 9 of #WorldHealthWarriors 😱🌈 🙏🏻 Today’s pose is #skaterpose, a lesser known, but fun one to strengthen, energize, and boost the warrior within. I love this pose as a transition to build deeper strength through stability during my flows.
A Warrior does not spend his days trying to play the role that others have chosen for him.
Give our AMAZING sponsors some love! ❤

“Vinyasa means "breathing system.” Without vinyasa, don’t do asana. When vinyasa is perfect, the mind is under control. That’s the main thing-controlling the mind. That’s the method Patanjali described. The scriptures say that prana and apana are made equal by keeping the ratio of inhalation and exhalation equal and by following the breath in the nostrils with the mind. If you practice this way, gradually mind comes under control’’. -Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
