“I had tried a lot of other types of mentally calming things like going to church, counseling, self-help books, and talking to my friends,” she says. “Yoga seemed like it would work because I didn’t see anything else working.” Daphne soon discovered that yoga had its advantages.
“I practice yoga every day” says Daphne. “I practice alone and in a class, because yoga is not a destination. It literally is a practice. It’s something that you do, and it’s strictly for you. It’s not for anyone else. The more you do, the better you get. The physical fitness through yoga is actually a by-product of the emotional calmness and the focus you gain just by listening to your instructor, listening to your body, listening to the breathing, paying attention to yourself, going inward to get the power that you need, and yet having a power greater than yourself, even focusing in on the God that you serve. You know, whatever is greater than you. All of this focus is necessary just to be able to put one foot in front of the other.” From Huffington Post
"I found my yoga practice a few years back when a friend invited me to an antigravity yoga class. I was going through a rough patch and she advised that it would help."
"In the class I felt awkward and out of place but chose to make the best of it. I got the hang of it after few classes in but felt like something was missing. I decided to ground my practice and after looking into studios and class descriptions, the restorative style felt the safest."
"This class changed my life forever. We were taught to sit still. To quit our minds and to breath with purpose. I walked away from this experience vowing to help people feel what I’d just experienced. A year later I began Marni Task’s Jivasara Yoga Teacher Training."
