Let me introduce myself 💚
My name is Susie, age 43. I'm a daughter to Bob and Linda, a mother and stepmother to Sam and Christian, and Soulmates with Jason. I'm a yoga teacher, studio owner and self proclaimed cheerleader for humanity.
The first 38 years of my life look much different than the last 5. Before and after yoga.
My childhood diagnosis were depression, anxiety, #scoliosis and #trichotillomania (hair pulling). #Arthritis , #fibromyalgia , #insomnia , widening, bulging and degenerating discs came with adulthood. Right before I found yoga, I had coughed my way into eight broken ribs. I binge ate, smoked cigarettes and NEVER drank water (gross 🤣) I was hospitalized when I was 12 for depression and anxiety after I threatened to throw myself out a window. I dropped out of high school twice because of my anxiety. I was an army wife for 15 years and when my son was born in Texas, I was so isolated from everything that I only left the house to go to the grocery store, the doctor or the neighbors. Depression was my constant, continual companion.
And somehow, I survived.
Jason and I found yoga together in a rock bottom moment in our relationship. And as we continued to make time for our mats, our health and our relationship skyrocketed. We both found a creative, passionate outlet for giving back to this amazing universe that has given us so much.
Fast forward 5 years. Yoga strengthened my mood, my back and my confidence to the point that I no longer go to the doctor or take medication. I became so passionate about yoga that I trained for 200 hours formally and countless hours informally. I went from an office worker to a studio owner, which is still something this high school dropout marvels over 🤣
Through yoga, nutrition and continual hardwork, I'm happier and healthier than ever.
Follow @yogaisserved as I share my journey and tips I learned along the way. I'll also be sharing my students words, as they are part of my journey as well.
Sending you love. Because I learned how 💚💚💚💚 #yoga #mentalhealth #depression
