I’m a christian who loves reading, writing, eating right, and staying fit. Besides yoga, I love running, walking, and rebounding to music. What keeps me busy is schooling my son, studying nutrition and practicing yoga. I’ve used yoga in my fitness regime for over 20 years but studying it has taught me so much. I also write. My biggest writing project currently is a Hispanic Jane Austen fan fiction, so incandescently yes, I’m a huge Austen fan!
Yoga changed my life at 26. Having dealt with anxiety for most of my teen age youth since my parents divorce, yoga helped me to regain inner calm and happiness. On a small note, a vegan diet helped thicken up my hair. It also helped me to conceive, at age 41. For someone diagnosed with endometriosis, this was huge. Yoga breathing techniques helped make my geriatric birth quick and easy (10 minutes!) with no complications and best of all, NO epidural! So yes, I firmly believe in the power of plants and a yoga practice.
I’ve always been interested in natural health and decided to formally study it after becoming a mom, especially in a country where everything seems to be linked to the food industry and to the promotion of meat and dairy. And, with so much information on the benefits of raw food vs cooked in bookstores and online, I wanted the facts. This is why I’m glad I found the University of Natural Health, a non-traditional natural health college that bases nutrition on our natural diet of raw fruits and vegetables. Its a nutrition program with everything I hoped to study and more!
Thanks for the interest!
