My Journey Here
I have been through many ups and downs. I have experienced loss, the struggle that comes with working 5 jobs just to make a living, and the detriment of living an unhealthy lifestyle. All of these things rolled up into one made me feel as though I was stuck in the mud, and my soul was crying out for a solution. One day I stumbled upon a podcast where a woman was explaining how the moon phases affect our emotions and our overall life, and how we could work with the phases to learn self-care, self-compassion and develop a powerful knowledge of manifestation.
This got me thinking.
If I could combine my love of yoga with a healthy knowledge of the moon phases, that might be the key I’ve been looking for to change my life. I was right! I went from a struggling life where I was constantly trying to make ends meet in the mid-west to a life in the flow in beautiful southern Oregon where I live out my dreams and provide for myself with ease. In this space Life by the Moon Yoga was created! I use every piece of knowledge I gather to bring my students the tools they need to realize that they are the key to the life they’ve always wanted.
If you are looking for guidance toward a healthy Yoga practice, and a path towards deep transformational change, then Life by the Moon Yoga is for you.
