How Yoga found me

Yoga found me in Clermont, FL in 2000. After studying botanicals for many years, I decided to open up an apothecary that quickly became a spiritual book store bursting with stones, incense, essentials oils, candles, jewelry, clothing, books and tons of herbs and teas. I fashioned all of the displays to roll out of the way to create space for classes. We held herb classes, readings and then eventually yoga. I had never tried yoga but I was intrigued when a local yoga teacher approached me about offering classes.
My first class was, um, interesting. It was hard, I didn’t understand the point and I felt like I was going to throw up. Yep, I didn’t breathe as instructed and, since my body had never known “detox” or even how to breath, all of the stagnant breath just got reabsorbed thereby making me ill. I don’t think I took a breath the entire class. By the time I got to Savasana, I thought “I’m never doing this again”.
The next day I felt great. Surprise! I felt better than I ever had. Sure, I wasn’t unhealthy but I’m not sure that I had been breathing more than just a shallow breath for my entire life. That day, I was breathing with full breaths and felt giddy. Well, ok, I was probably making myself light headed from the introduction of the foreign substance known as oxygen and the pure elation I felt thinking about my next class. I had no idea how yoga was going to change so much about my life.
I’ve been practicing ever since.
