Like many people, I used to think that the “no pain-no gain” approach of intense discipline and willpower, sprinkled with deprivation, was the only way to get skinny and “be happy.” I wasted a lot of time stuck in the mindset of “feeling fat,” counting calories, dieting and over exercising.

 

 

I felt like I was on a hamster wheel. I was consumed by those three numbers on the scale. 

Does this sound familiar? Let’s see. I was a regular at every group fitness class. I started running a lot and ate whatever “the experts” were telling me – this was during the non-fat, low-fat craze. I counted calories, ate tasteless food and felt bad if I ever overate or didn’t follow the plan. This reenactment went on for a while. Looking back, I was never overweight, but those last 8-10 lbs. took up way too much precious time and energy. More importantly, I felt as though I was always chasing something that was beyond my reach.

One other thing, one other BIG thing – in 1999, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. After a battery of tests and biopsies, I had no name for what I developed or no known cause, just a connective tissue issue. I was in shock. Here, I thought I was living a “healthy” lifestyle doing everything right. Without being given much insight, I was sent on my way with a prescription and instructions to come back each month for blood tests. After a month of feeling nauseous and wiped out, I decided to take control of my situation – and I definitely had a situation. I researched everything I could find regarding my condition and learned how diet, sleep, exercise and stress – especially stress – played a major role in inflaming or managing my dis-ease. I was on a mission to heal my body and bring back the ease.

And then it happened … the real gift came while I was training for a marathon. I was introduced to the healing practice of yoga and meditation. I tell students, for me it wasn’t love at first class, but more of a slow burn. Through this practice, I was able to reconnect to my body in a different way and I experienced a real glimpse of contentment, joy and love for my own body.

This was so new and exciting to me. I wanted to share my experience with others, so I signed up for a year-long yoga teaching training program. Teaching yoga was the entry point for me and I have been teaching since 2006; however, not until I did my first 21-day cleanse did I realize how nutrition and conscious eating brings real health and vitality to the body. So I trained with the best integrative nutrition school in the country, based out of New York at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. During my training, I studied more than 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.

This is not a fad or a diet. It is truly a lifestyle shift to optimal health and happiness.
