Have you ever heard a saying that one can’t fully bounce back until they’ve hit their deepest, darkest point?
I have … and I have.
Not long ago, life was good. Really good. I had a thriving yoga studio in Orlando. My own products line. I mentored students across the country. I traveled the world teaching yoga and experiencing amazing things.
I’d never felt so full. My cup overflowed. After nearly two decades of teaching yoga and health and wellness, it was all there. I believed I’d found olotita (meaning “wholeness”).
Then, it all changed … so fast. A botched shoulder surgery that left me partially disabled. COVID-19. The shuttering of my studio.
From great pain, comes broader understanding. I thought I had achieved olotita. I was wrong.
As healing and recovery progressed, my new mission crystallized. I realized I wanted to help people achieve true wholeness in their lives. I would help them learn about, and integrate, new skills into their lives, ones to replenish their energies and purpose. These tools are ones of self-care – a holistic and sustainable investment in our bodies, minds and souls.
The nuts and bolts? Practices such as nutrition, meditation, yoga (of course), bodywork, breath work, life coaching … all that tie the mind and body together.
Accountability and empowerment are critical elements. You need to be in 100 percent control. Your body’s health and energy will work the wonders.
After 2 1/2 years, I have resumed local Mysore style Yoga classes, and national and international workshops this year. And I am resuming International Retreats also; in 2023 I will lead an incredible week long yoga retreat traveling through Morocco and a week long yoga retreat in Portugal ! My YouTube channel is 100% free and I upload new content every single week! Subscribe to stay connected with new videos on Yoga, nutrition, meditation, mindfulness and so much more.
I’m really grateful to be here now. And I welcome you to Wholeness, to Olotita.
