What do I do for exercise? Yoga, functional weight training, movement, dance, surfing, hiking, jogging, biking, throwing and kicking balls, lots of playing in nature and the sun!! Having fun is essential.
What do you do for fun? I find life to be most interesting and engaging when I try to make whatever I'm doing fun including exercise and making food... to me "fun" means full of passion, open mindedness, heart, and enjoyment!
My story is:
I was once sick, out of shape, and depressed! I suffered greatly from digestive issues, dermatitis, and stiff sore joints after my college baseball career was over.
During my twenties I hit rock bottom. I was partying hard, living an extreme life... NOT taking care of myself at all. I was eating like crap and not spending enough time in nature, nurturing myself, resting, etc... You could say I was burning the candle from both ends of the stick! My health began to fall apart quickly. I had to have kidney surgery from the stress of taking too many supplements as a weight lifter. I had a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder, my stomach / digestion was a mess, and I was battling dermatitis on a regular basis. I was in a lot of pain and was suffering greatly.
Looking for help I did what most people do... I went to my local doctor. He prescribed drugs and surgery! Things didn't get better... they got worse... a lot worse. After my shoulder surgery I was not able to do anything physical for about 6 months. The combination of prescription drugs, inactivity, and poor eating made my already ailing health even worse. My body had become extremely acidic and unable to heal. I was in a dark hole... with no flash light! I was desperate for relief. I don't know how it happened but one day while surfing the internet, I stumbled upon a blog describing someone who had been suffering from digestion and skin problems and had found great relief from something called Ayurveda.
It struck a chord in me... I felt something in my body shift as I read about this all natural healing modality that "turned the body's own natural healing powers on". I researched it tirelessly! It filled me with hope and eventually turned my health and life around and inspired me to go to Yoga Teacher Training.
Since then I have put a decade of research and personal exploration into the art of self healing, cleansing, yoga, fitness, and nutrition. It is my passion and my joy to learn how to create vibrant health in an all natural, non-gimmicky way!
I've become very adept at the transformation process... I can help you do the same.
