Dear Ali Kamenova,
My name is Jaclyn, I am a devoted YouTube Yogi student of yours and I have been training solid with you for about a year now. I do one of your Yoga classes almost every day, and I wanted to share with you the transformation and changes that have happened since I have been following you.
So I would like to start by telling you that I didn’t always have a good relationship with Yoga. In fact I used to despise it. As part of my college training in Australia, every Monday morning we had Yoga class. At that time, my body was releasing a lot of trauma and therefore I had a panic attack during a class witch very quickly turned me off it. I was mostly getting angry and wanting to kill everyone after class. However, I am a very determined person, so I enrolled in unlimited Power Yoga at a school near me, just so I could prove to myself that I was able to overcome this ‘hate’ relationship. But I never found the love for Yoga that I have today. I was also battling for a very long time with an eating disorder and never had a good relationship with my body. I eventually gave up on Yoga and started to do Thai boxing and lifting weights at the gym. As I kept healing myself and working on loving myself, I liked my body however I never seemed to be able to maintain my weight, often pushing waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to hard and consequently putting a lot of strain on myself. I would also get fatigued easily and have constant pain everywhere.
I moved to Los Angeles about a year ago to pursue my acing career.
I struggled to find work here for a long time, so I went completely broke. I had to cancel my gym membership, and therefore find an alternative. That’s when I took it as an opportunity to take it as a sign that this was no longer serving my highest interest and to look for something new. I came across your yoga class on YouTube and I have never looked back. I lost a ton of weight and mostly extra body fat, I have shrunk, I have leaner out and I now have a much toner body. I have way more energy than ever before and my body feels like MY body. Because of your amazing classes I cannot express the freedom and love I now have for myself. Above all, it’s become effortless to maintain my weight. Of course my diet has improved, as I have become vegetarian, I now eat what I want, but without your Yoga I am not sure I would have achieved such incredible results.
So what I want to say is that you have created something that truly heals others. I watched the episode on your healing story and I want to thank you for having gone through that to help others. I think it’s important that you know how much you have helped me and without a shadow of a doubt, how much you are helping and healing others.
So… THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
