Sometimes in our lives we need something to jolt us awake, and empower us to change. For me, this has been my best friends battle with metastatic breast cancer. We are the same age. The truth is that I have gotten too busy, and too stressed to take care of myself. But, watching Nikki fight so hard to stay healthy made me realize that I had no excuse. Taking care of my body, my health, and my well being needed to be something that I made a priority in my life.
That is when the universe intervened and introduced me to Jaime Hynes and her holistic studio Dantian Studio. I jumped at the opportunity to be apart of the studio, and find out for myself what it meant to be healthy in all aspects of my life.
The key difference between this and a gym? The goal is to achieve harmony for your physical and spiritual body. Isn't that what we all want? To be peaceful and healthy?
I don't know about you, but I have always struggled to find the balance between enjoying my life (I hope to die on a desert island with brie, red wine, and french bread!) and taking care of my body. But, the body part.... the "I wanna look good in a bikini" part doesn't cover it all. You need to be healthy with your emotions and your heart too. That will be the hardest journey for me. To be able to understand my road blocks, my setbacks, and to also come to peace with any grief or fear I have in my heart. The thought of losing my best friend is something that takes over my body, and past losses continue to leave an imprint on my heart. These things need to healed.
SO, for the next couple of months I will be involving you on my journey. My hope is that if I share my struggles, accomplishments, and experiences with my readers, that I will be accountable and in turn hopefully inspire some of you to join me. Beauty is not just makeup or hair products. Beauty is feeling whole, loved, and proud of yourself. I want to glow from the inside.
The classes are small, which I adore.
