Yogamix in conjunction with Love Aerial Yoga were born as a result of some health issues I had been experiencing. I have practised yoga for over 25 years and enjoyed a fairly healthy and fit life, running, weight lifting and cross training as well as practising yoga. Over 8 years ago I was struck down quite literally with some health issues which made yoga very difficult and more often impossible to practice. Then I found Aerial Yoga and Yoga Therapy and I fell in love with them quite literally!
The feeling of freedom and joy to be alive just flooded through my body as I started to practice in the hammock. All of a sudden I had support to help me balance, it didn't matter if I wobbled about or stumbled, the hammock became my yoga friend and never let me down::) I started to practice and learn new yoga skills with more confidence.
Through Yoga Therapy I learned to listen to my body and understand and accept that its okay to be 'just as you are'. I learned to adapt my practice in meaningful and healthy ways so I could still enjoy the benefits that yoga offers to body, mind and soul.
I realised its not about practicing yoga perfectly, living the perfect life or the perfect life someone wants you to live. Its not about never wobbling or falling over in life or yoga. Its about being free to be who you are, being content and happy with yourself in each moment. When small positive changes occur in our lives and practice we can celebrate and be grateful, embracing these moments, for bringing joy and happiness into our lives.
