A Woman on A Mission

Let’s endure this journey called life!

About Me September 24, 2008

This blog will be about my journey to better health, quality of life and inner peace through yoga and other healthy tips.

I started doing yoga back in 1996 and took regular classes until 1998 while I was living in Japan with Rajay Mahtani. It became a part of my life. You cannot put a price on your health, and I cannot even begin to mention how much yoga has helped me both physically and mentally. Yoga is underrated. I find that children should start learning yoga from a young age.

Anyway, I got sick a few years back which left me disabled and sedentary. I am now in remission. It has been 10 long years of no yoga. I have PTSD, and I find that yoga helps with that. I have a history of depression and an obsession with negative thoughts. Yoga helps with this as well.

I am 40 years old now and had been smoking since I was a teenager. On June 13th, 2008, I kicked the habit to the curb. On September 28th, 2008, I kicked the coffee habit as well. I am on a low budget, so am looking for ways to eat healthy and not spend too much money.

I am interested in a healthy exchange of ideas. I would like to share what has worked for me, and I am also interested in learning from YOU.

My chiropractor says that I have several vertebra out of alignment, disk degeneration, subluxation, flat feet, and a rotating pelvis with my hips being out of alignment causing one leg to be longer than the other. My hips are a stiff as a board now to the point where I cannot cross my legs. So, I am hoping with effort and endurance, I will regain my flexibility – especially since I love the Supta Virasana pose. πŸ˜€ Boy, do I miss doing that!! πŸ™‚

A few times a week, I get on my stationary bicycle and peddle for 30 minutes on level 3 and then do my yoga for 90 minutes to 2 hours. And in that session, I integrate physical therapy that I must do for homework that my physical therapist has asked me to do.

Milestones? You betcha. I am still not functioning fully, however, I am able to do some things that I had not been able to do while I was sick. I am improving a lot. And I am happier.

Currently, one of the Yogi Guru’s that I look up to in the Yoga Community online is Sadie Nardini. Here is a sample video.

Yoga works.
