I’m like a waterfall




I’m like a waterfall.

I run and swish and I never stop.

I flow vigorously,

sometimes it’s scary,

sometimes it’s monotone, almost quiet and unnoticeable.

But I never stop.

I’m like a waterfall.

I carry everything with me.

But I never stop.

I flow vigorously.

Sometimes it’s scary.

Sometimes I carry.

But I never stop.

I run.

I wish.

I swish.

It can get dangerous.

But I never stop.

Exciting.

I flow.

Like a waterfall.

I cry.

I feel.

Everything around me.

But I never stop.

I flow.

I cry.

I feel.

I scream.

But I never stop.

Yoga is my therapy, movement is my medicine, peace is my goal.

 

I experienced the loss of my father right before my first year of college. 

 

I was leaving home, moving to NYC to pursue an education and a career in art. At the same time, I was experiencing the death of a parent. 

 

I was caught between two feelings.

 

What was once the excitement and ecstasy of taking on the biggest adventure of my life was suddenly replaced with trauma, loneliness, and fear.

 

I needed to shut the world off for a minute. It was all going too fast...

 

I decided to start taking yoga to find some stillness, some clarity, a moment of quiet before leaving to New York that summer.

 

I didn't understand much of it then other than the silence that it brought my mind lead to some healing in my heart. Little did I know this practice would change my entire life.

 

I want you to know that healing is possible. Its a journey.

 

I hope that through my sharing of personal experiences with these rituals and practices, you are able to heal those wounds, and become stronger.

 

 

 

I see you. I hear you. I'm with you.
