My Transformation Journey
In 1997, I traded in my Delta Flight Attendant wings for a full time mom position. I became a certified NETA Group Fitness Instructor and had the opportunity to take my children to work with me. Over the past 20 years and several certifications, I decided to specialized in Yoga, Pilates, Cycle and Parkinson Disease Movement Classes. I enjoyed going to work everyday in the local gyms.
In 2010, I became a Reiki Master Therapist and the following year I started working at Piedmont Fayette/Newnan Cancer Wellness Center offering Reiki, Yoga & Mindfulness to cancer patients. Now I offer corporate yoga classes through Inner Peace Studio, LLC at local companies such as Coweta/Fayette EMC, Cancer Treatment Center of America - Newnan and local health fairs/events. I also write curriculums for continuing education and I'm a motivational speaker in the field of Mindfulness.
Yoga is more than just moving into poses. It is about the breath, mindfulness and freedom we feel inside our body. A person of any size, shape or age can practice yoga and receive the wonderful benefits of yoga. Grant permission to be YOU! Accept the changes in YOUR body/life situations ( hormones, divorce, cancer, pain, Parkinson disease and caregiving) and love YOURSELF unconditionally!
I'm sharing my journey with you to let you know that you are not alone. My life changed drastically when my marriage of 20 years ended, empty nest, became the caregiver to my mother until she passed away, resigned from teaching classes at the local gyms and took a leap of faith with my business. Our life journey happens for a reason and for a season. We have to remember to step back and look at our journey and appreciate where we are now in life. Allowing our light to shine for others to see and give hope to others.
Gratitude plays a major role in my life and I'm so grateful for everyone and everything that made this journey possible for me today. My family, friends, clients and the Holy Spirit. Every day is a blessing and it should be full of love, peace and happiness.
