It is safe for me to release and relinquish all ancient vows of silence. It’s safe for me to open the front and back of my heart. It’s safe for to rise up and do the highest and boldest version of the work that is calling me.

Are you ready?
Let me tell you a story…
I’m in my mid-30s, married, successful in my career, great friends and had just run my first 10k.
Life was good!
My life was filled with crazy work hours, running, working out, and socializing with friends; there was never a quiet moment.
I was on top of the world and nothing could stop me—or so I thought. I didn’t realize the go go was actually starting to tear me down.
It started with feeling more and more fatigued. I began needing coffee in the afternoon, energy to work out was non-existent, I began to experience inflammation and Advil became my best friend. It was no longer wine on the weekends it was wine every damn day so I could get to sleep and yet I never felt rested. Mornings were a struggle I could barely wake up and when I did my brain was foggy. Pain and fatigue dominated my every waking moment.
Getting out of bed seemed insurmountable. Having to put my feet on the earth to take a step was excruciating. I couldn’t get down the stairs without help, which was humbling, angering, and frustrating all in the same moment.
I remember driving to work, waiting for the parking garage door to open with tears rolling down my face. I didn’t know if I could survive another day.
For months I suffered and kept plugging away believing this was what life is like when you’re busy and successful. I just needed to push through and eventually it would shift.
Then I could no longer push through. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. In that moment, my life was over. Nothing would ever be the same.
Anger came in and I was ready to fight. This was not my story. I joined a gym, hired a trainer, and took a leave from my job.
I was going to “fix” this because there was no other option. I had responsibilities, people needed me to get the work done and take care of them. I defined myself as the caregiver I could not lose that as well.
I began to notice my pain and suffering now included desperation. Nothing was working. All I could do was sleep and cry and exist in a black hole alone.
Finally, after endless struggle, I found myself in a yoga class. Prior to my illness, yoga was about fitness. But this class was an act of surrender—I had nothing to lose. I went in and laid on the mat and did some movement, but spent most of the time in savasana. I left class that day feeling a little better.
That experience led me to dive deeper into restorative yoga and also a journey into yoga philosophy, work with therapists, coaches and turn all of my focus inward and the healing began. Restorative yoga was my catalyst to change and became my healer, counselor, and sanctuary. It was all those things because I began to listen to my own needs and desires.
Finally I was beginning to release the layers of stress I had been carrying for so long. I began to feel lighter; the fog was clearing and I was regaining my life.
My sense of desperation left and hope was cultivated.
As my inner connection grew, so did I.
My dance with stress and illness took me from a dark place and brought me to the light. It taught me to quiet all the thoughts swirling in my mind, access safe passage for my body to release and let go. It brought me home to my heart.
I know it’s friggin scary! Navigating your health and questioning your recovery path is intense.
Now I’m not saying you’re going to leave your job and become a yoga teacher and hey maybe you will. What I’m saying is there’s a better way to come back to whole health. You deserve to wake up feeling energetic and refreshed; you deserve to have time for you and have boundaries. All of this accessible for you after your diagnosis.
