I went to my first yoga class in 2013 and I've been hooked ever since. I went to a few classes in Boston but that was 10-15 years ago. Why start now? The only reason I choose to go when my friend Sloane suggested I go with her, is because I could not get pregnant and I wanted anything to get my mind off of not being able to get pregnant. I was surprised how fast I fell in love with yoga. It made me feel happy, focused, relaxed, and not think about having a baby. I've been hooked ever since. My yoga journey has been a long one. I've always been more on the flexible side but I was not strong at all. It took me months to be able to hold a few poses. I could not focus at all during meditation or relax in savannah. I continued to keep at it. Over the course of 6 months to a year, I enrolled in teacher training that fall to deepen my understanding and my personal practice further. This process has helped me strip away more layers of the emotions of not being able to get pregnant. I became emotionally ad physically stronger and enjoying this new chapter in my life. I graduated from yoga teacher training in Knoxville, TN in May 2014. I met a friend there named Kaylee that suggested I go see her friend Sarah where she worked. I joked and said I don't believe in card reading and that type of stuff. She kindly keep nudging me to go. I finally agreed to make an appointment with Sarah at Gypsy Hands. We had a consultation in May, and one full hour body fertility belly massage end of May. It came and went and was wonderful. My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Jamaica for our 7 wedding year anniversary. We had the best time! After all, we did get married there. Three weeks later, I found out I was pregnant. I honestly believe I would not have been pregnant if it wasn't for starting yoga. We had a healthy boy Braxten on May 3, 2015. I went back to Sarah at Gypsy Hands in September that year and again in November. Again, I found out I was pregnant in January 2016. We had our third son on August 26, 2016. He spent ten days at at the NICU, but now is home and healthy. The journey I took with learning to breathe, let go and meditate being a student has fully led me to the point of starting to learn to live a more stress free life and let go of the what ifs and all about the not being able tos. Therefore, getting pregnant twice. We started trying for another baby when our oldest was 2. We now have a 10 year old, 2 year old, and 8 months old boys. Life is sure full of life and love. I would recommend anyone to holistic therapy. Everyones journeys starting yoga is different. This was my journey. What's yours?
