Upon moving to San Diego in 2012, I knew I would start to build roots in this beautiful place with lovely beaches and lush palm trees. I felt so grateful to finally feel at home in a location having the best weather, scenery, amenities, and things to do.
Growing up across the nation in many different states, I learned to adapt, function, and embrace the ebb and flow of constant change. At a young age, I latched onto my yoga practice and started to find peace from within.
I can't say that the practice was "easy" or even something that I thought I would stick with, but, over the years it grew on me and now has become a lifelong journey.
Should asana practice be your stability?
To me, yoga has the power to transform you from within. Staying dedicated and passionate holds unbelievable benefits. One thing I have learned is there are always good and bad days, constant chaos or calmness. Stepping onto my mat I feel safe with an immediate wave of relief.
The constant and stable feeling when I hit Shavasana at the end of class is something I can rely on. Rolling out my mat at the start of class my head may be spinning in a thousand different directions, only to leave feeling more grounded and at HOME.
Equilibrium brings equanimity.
