there is two types of pain, one that hurts you and the other that changes you
I was going through a pretty tough period in life about one and a half years ago. I think it was the combo of some sad family news on top of my stressful job that triggered my stress related symptoms. It all got quite severe, and I do recall the dizziness when driving to work in the morning, the pressure over the breast and the difficulty to breath, the weight loss, and the never ending headache I was suffering from. Do I need to say I wasn’t exactly the best mum in the world to my 5 years old daughter during this time? I fully realized I had to do something about the situation, but wasn’t sure how to improve my mental and physical health. Then I came across Ali’s Youtube channel just by chance, and after trying one of Ali’s classes I was hooked (never enjoyed yoga before in my life!). It only took me one or two months of yoga practice and all stress related symptoms were gone! And even better – I haven’t experienced any stress related symptoms since then.
Saying this, practicing yoga has definitely helped me open my eyes and to realize and focus on what’s important in life. The only change I’ve made to my life style is to add yoga to my life (almost every day I do at least one of Ali’s classes ), and the change in my quality of life has improved significantly! It has been an inner journey that is difficult to explain in words, but I find it so much easier to deal with the obstacles and stress today, now when I have yoga in life.
I want to take this opportunity to send a big THANK YOU to Ali. You are such a wonderful person sharing your yoga expertise with all of us. You make a change, and I’m sure the world would be a much better place if there were more people just like you! Thanks a million for being you!
