Georgia

I have done yoga on and off for about 9 years now. Some of my “off” periods were close to a year long, so I’m very comfortable with being a beginner. That’s one of the reasons I love yoga- it always meets you where you are. The only requirement is that you have breath flowing throughout your body. I started to deepen my practice in late 2016, when I was having the most trouble with my sleep. The side effects of not sleeping had me diagnosed with various disorders that I was being medicated for. I’d lost my sense of self and was stuck in a job that drained me of what little energy I had. All I knew was that even when I felt my lowest, an hour on my mat could quiet everything else and allow me to reconnect with my body. No longer was I living outside of my skin, a stranger inhabiting some foreign body. If my body wouldn’t allow me to sleep, at least I could get it to follow my inhales and exhales and take back some of my power where I felt I had lost so much of it. In early 2017 I was fired from that job after about the 100th time I physically couldn’t leave my bed for my office (but seriously when you’re only allowed a REM cycle how are you supposed to move your limbs???). 2017 was a year of more doctors and medicine trials and failures and finally I was diagnosed with narcolepsy. My current doctor is the one who suggested I do my 4th sleep study and he gave me back my life. Once I started sleeping again, I started waking up (pun so very intended) to myself and what I wanted to do with my time. When a friend who teaches yoga in California suggested I teach because I could do that with narcolepsy, I felt like I had to find a training right away. I am so grateful for my past because it makes me love my present. I love yoga because it’s been there through every up and down (dog). And I love teaching at awakened because you guys teach me about myself.

When I’m not at the studio you can catch me running, meditating, obsessing over essential oils, writing, or cooking!
