Hey, y'all! I've had this blog for over two years and I don't think I've ever done an introduction... which is usually the very first blog but oops.
I've never been particually great with introducing myself, I'm kinda shy and a bit private, except when I want to share my thoughts on Instagram, because I believe sharing can bring healing.
I'm Emily and I live in Georgia (US). I've been a yoga teacher for 3 years now. I recieved my 200 hour certification and then immediatly dove into my 300 hour training.
I'm currently not teaching, and while that used to bring me to tears, I'm in a season of evolving, so I need to focus on me.
I dove into the yoga practice after a break-up that left me with no sense of Self.
I got a Denise Austin (LOL) dvd from my mom and practiced every day for 20 minutes. I began to see the Light again.
I was drawn to teaching because not only did yoga change me physically, but mentally and emotionally.
I wanted to share the transformational power that yoga provided on the mat, but also off. My purpose is to give others a sense of peace, freedom, a chance to discover their true Self.
My training heavily emphasised the mental side of the yoga practice- meditation.
I would meditate on my training weekends with everyone, but wouldn't really keep it up consistently. It scared me- it still does, but I'm learning to love it, and maybe even crave it? (Post on meditation coming soon!).
I love writing. I journal every day. Sharing my thoughts publicly brings me a sense of joy because I hope that someone is feeling the same way I'm feeling and can find some joy amoung their troubles. It also makes us feel more connected to each other.
I get my love of writing from my momma, as well as my fascination with our Chakra system, and crystals.
I want to blog full-time about yoga and spirituality, I want to write books that help bring Light to others, I want to teach yoga and learn more about Kundalini and Restorative yoga practices. I want to travel the world, and live on the West Coast. I want, I want, I want....
I'm learning about manifesting and creating a life revolved around Love and my "I want" statements are actually, "I'm going to blog full-time, teach yoga, write a book, travel, move to the west coast, continue my yoga education, get certified in Reiki, meet with a Shaman, and so much more."
I'm quiet, intense at times, learning to be more patient, and fully obesessed with being "Radiant Inspiration"- my Sankalpa since my 200-hour teacher training.
I love chocolate chip cookies, and binging Netflix. I'm a Type 1 Diabetic and love educating people about my disease, which brought to where I am today. I wish to bring more compassion and unity to the world, and I'm still figuring this whole life thing out.
But, aren't we all??
Alright, I think that's enough of me rambling. I want to know more about you, my readers, fellow instagram followers, or facebook friends, wherever you coming from- welcome and thank you for reading!
A yogi with the passion to transform and inspire others along their path.
