My journey to SOL…

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is not think. Not wonder. Not imagine. Not obsess. Just breathe. And have faith that everything will work out for the best.

I know this to be true, and why I feel so compelled to share this with you.

This is yoga to me.  It’s an opportunity to change, move and expand your life forward in the most amazing, most profound ways.

And why, after years of dreaming it, I founded SOL Yoga: “The Secret of Life”. And the best gift I could possibly offer you.

Let me back track to how I got here.  For most of my life, I’ve been a go-getter of the busiest, don’t-hold-me-back, kind. Tell me something isn’t possible, and I’ll show you!

You’d think such drive and determination would be a good thing, right? For the most part, yes.  But holding a sense of tunnel vision can also be limiting, as you miss what’s in the peripheral.  As I’ve come into myself, I’ve learned more and more the beauty of looking things from a different angle, and I’m so grateful.

So how did I find yoga? Or better yet, how did yoga find me?

I first came into yoga after years doing spin classes, bootcamps and other high intensity workouts.  While I enjoyed their benefits – a good hard sweat and physically keeping me in great shape, there was something missing. During these years, I was also a young Mum to four, juggling a busy household, while keeping business projects on-the-go. A Blackberry in one hand, a child in the other, you know the drill.

Not until I first stepped on the mat, did my life really change for the better.

Sure, there have been times when I went off-course, but rather than get anxious about it, thanks to yoga, I’ve learned to slow down. To take a deep breath. To focus on the mat, move my body and see what unfolds next.

Fast forward years later, and the results speak for themselves: I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m showing-up for life, the path I’m on, and embracing it every damn day. I’m raising my kids with love that knows no limits. I’m more focused and aligned with my intentions and bringing joy into other people’s lives. My household runs on love and respect, supporting one another – no matter what.

Yoga’s domino effect has penetrated into all areas of my life. From the food I choose to nourish my body with, to the phone call I have with a friend. I am more patient, forgiving and most important, I am more present than ever.

And being present is the secret of life, isn’t it? I mean if you’re not present than where are you?

Sure, I may be the worst cook or say something I regret minutes later. I may fall out of tree’s pose or struggle with eagle, but I’ll keep trying and trusting. Because in yoga, as in life, we must go with the flow!

Now able to share this extraordinary gift with you, my intention is to welcome you to yoga, to develop your own practice. To go beyond any doubts or limitations you may be feeling, while experiencing the most deserving and rewarding sweat in the process.

Do yoga once and it’ll change your mind. Do it more than once, and it’ll change your body.  Do it every day (even just minutes!) and it’ll change your life.

At SOL, my team and I are committed to making you feel good! Not just in our studio, but in all facets of your being. Whether you choose a traditional vinyasa class or a powerful flow, you will be immersed in the most delicious infrared heat. This, while being guided by the best instructors I could possibly ask for.

Now that the secret’s out, are you ready to change your life? Say yes, and I’ll see you on the mat.
