Yoga came into my life, and as much as I resisted being open to it, it completely transformed me. Yoga became my medicine. The hatha opened me up to the idea of slowing down and breathing and the breathwork, meditation, and kriyas healed a traumatic brain injury by rewiring my brain on a neuron synapse-connection level as well as healing emotional issues like anxiety and depression and releasing biocellular memory of past traumas and emotional experiences. The practices of freedom movement and partner work broke down my barriers of connection and isolation, shame, guilt, and self-sabotage, allowing for my true Self to shine.
Essentially, life brought me to a place of complete, raw, truth and surrender and my willingness to continue allowed yoga, meditation, medicine, and wisdom to transform my life and my being. I came to India in a beautifully vulnerable space to study with Vedic and Himalayan Master, Anand Mehrotra, and soon after, kept returning to this place and practice that had brought me to the ultimate state of vitality, awareness, and wellbeing.
I learned how to combine these 7 aspects of life in order to live to my fullest potential, all the time. I learned how energy works, how it affects you and all those you interact with including plants, spaces, and objects. I learned how each practice can be used at the bedside and with patients and families, and how it can be integrated with medicine and eventually lead to not needing or requiring the medication. The knowledge and wisdom from the East merged with my previous knowledge in the acute medical field and has lead me to this beautiful healing modality that can be used for all beings to live a more free and united; integrated life.
