Yoga found me when I was working 14-hour days in finance and muting my creative voice in exchange for a six-figure salary with two weeks vacation a year.
After work, I was binge drinking and dancing on tables in NYC’s most glamorous night clubs.
I was fiercely out of control and afraid of the woman I was born to be.
My relationships and partnerships didn’t give me the opportunity to shine, for my light was always dimmed by my fear of speaking up for myself. It was easier to play small, so there I stayed.
My body rebelled. I suffered from chronic congestion, puffiness, brain fog, constipation, food allergies, and severe stomach irritability for nearly a decade.
As my yoga practice deepened, I realized the way I was treating myself and showing up in my life had a direct correlation to the persistence of my Hashimoto’s hypothyroid symptoms.
Once I completed yoga teacher training and created a thriving wellness practice, I quit my corporate job. My symptoms cleared up, but I was still afraid to use my voice in class. I’d mimic the same alignment cues and the intonations of my dearest teacher because I wasn’t yet confident with mine.
I can relate to the fear that many new teachers have about their voice. I want to tell them to believe, to love the way their voice feels as it leaves their lips. To speak with conviction from their naval center.
Teachers, we have gifts. It’s your duty to live your dharma and be the healer you were born to be.
Chant. Dance in class. Teach from your heart. Be you. Fearlessly, authentically you.
In this immense pressure of our time, we must teach healing practices that go deeper and more subtle than a traditional asana (movement) practice.
For these powerful reasons, I am offering Thyroid.Yoga™ training. as a comprehensive immersion November 3-6, 2016 in Los Angeles at RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Sciences & Technology. This training will also be available globally streaming on RA MA TV.
The benefits of this unique immersion go far beyond “another certification.” After completion of this training, participants will come away equipped with the tools and resources to confidently provide value-added offerings and resources for their clients and students.
