A bit of my history...
My early caterpillar days were packed full of all kinds of insecurities.
I suffered from chronic anxiety which brought on debilitating depression and even suicidal ideations.
The negative self beliefs infected my life in many ways, bringing on painful self sabotage and abuse with all kinds of toxic substances and situations.
This is where yoga stretched into my life.
At first, I was attracted to the practice to get my butt to look good in yoga pants; yet, I quickly discovered that the practice has so much more to it than the result of a nice ass.
As I laid in Savasana (final resting “corpse pose“) and tears started pouring out of me from all the years of repressed emotions. I started to realize the profound implications yoga had for my mind as well.
Reflecting on my corpse (and inevitable mortality) also triggered quite the existential quarter life crisis.
I saw the path being glorified and pushed in front of me (of material acquisition, corporate success, marriage, house, and kids) and something about it just didn’t sit right in my heart at that time.
