“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
Until the age of 33, I was not ready to be a student. I was too convinced I had everything in life figured out already. That was until the life I had been living turned upside down.
After my wakeup call, I realized I was in the worst shape of my life, both physically and mentally. When my sister tried to drag me to a yoga class, I resisted at first, but ultimately decided, “What do I have to lose?”
While I struggled through that first class, when we all laid down to rest at the end of practice I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and stillness, something I desperately needed. I was hooked and wanted more.
Although I was first drawn to the physical practice of yoga, I learned that this is just a part of a more comprehensive practice. Yoga provided me a framework to live a more fulfilling life. Up to this point, I didn’t think I was a ‘bad’ person, I just wasn’t a ‘good’ one. Yoga made me want to be a ‘good‘ person.
