Yoga was the one thing that was too hard for me to understand. Being an athlete all my life, yoga made me focus on slowing down and being present rather than going a million miles an hour and always seeing a quick result. Yoga also healed me in ways that nothing else ever had, starting with reconstructing my body, calming my mind and awakening my spirit.
