These photos are personal moments from my Yoga Faith Teacher training. There is a story behind each one. Each is a fiber in the tapestry of my life that God used to get me where He wanted me.
This training was incredible on so many levels. It was training to teach others but greater than that, each day of training was filled with lessons for me to walk through life’s pain and to learn to release that and express that through worshipping on my Yoga Mat. Yoga has so many health benefits . IT is a mind, body and spirit journey. It’s a practice that brings JOY and increases your time with GOD.
YogaFaith’s mission is to guide others into a sacred space with the Lord through Christian yoga. YF believes in a REDEEMED yoga practice based on the RECONCILIATION of ALL THINGS by the blood of Christ (Col. 1:19-20).
In HIM we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28
In the Fall of 2016 I led 30 ladies through a 12 week program at our local gym. THEN I was blessed to be ask to come and share my “grief” story/testimony and lead a YOGA FAITH CLASS at the FRAMEWORK ladies conference in November of 2016 at TIMBER CREEK. It was so humbling to sit before those ladies and simply share what GOD has been doing in my life. I have led many other classes for special events/corporate groups and will continue to do that as God Leads.
I owned and operated a YOGA STUDIO of my own for two years. I called it HUNKY DORY. TRUTH is the real meaning of hunky dory means to HUNKER DOWN. As in a time of war. Get into my “safe place”. I offered seven classes a week from chair yoga to vinyasa yoga. I also led restorative yoga in combination with health retreats and personal one on one classes.
March of 2018 I completed my Trauma Sensitive Teacher training with Yogafaith. It is an honor to be part of a group of other teachers who have a heart for helping to HEAL others. There is no greater honor than being the hands and feet of Jesus. The body truly does keep the score.
UPDATE… As of March 1, 2020 I will be spending more time writing and working with individuals on a personal level for health and wellness. (Life Coaching, spiritual growth, weight loss, trauma recovery, etc. )
