I am open to the possibility of anything and everything!
I've been trying to find health and balance in my life, unsuccessfully, for almost two years now. Burnt out on exercise regimens and fad diets, I signed up for 40 Days of Yoga with Container Collective, just to reset before jumping into the next workout plan and diet. My only goal was to improve my yoga practice. At the Welcome Meeting, I realized there was going to be a lot more to the 40 Days than just yoga. This was the best possible surprise. The meditation, reading, and journaling gave me perspective and tools I need to deal with the stressful and contentious situations that occur day-to-day in life. I found that being "mindful" of what I was eating, finding the balance between fueling my body and fueling my soul, produced better results than any of the restrictive diets I had tried before. The yoga made me stronger and I expanded my practice... six wheels don't get the best of me anymore! And I found a community! Showing up to the studio almost every day, I built relationships with the teachers, my fellow 40 Day yogis, and everyone else who came to their mat. I never felt alone in my journey. Without the accountability and encouragement, the results of my 40 Days would be very different. For that, I will always be grateful to CCYOGA.
Before the 40 Days with CCYOGA my experience with yoga/meditation/mindful eating was intermittent.
During the program I found empowerment to change my habits and my life, but with ease.
Weight loss wasn't ever a focus of my journey, but I lost 7lbs and 3 inches off my waist during the 40 days. While the number on the scale is exciting, I also just felt really good. I finally understood what people mean when they say their body feels awesome. My body feels stronger from the yoga. The meditation has helped me move past a focus on petty weight loss, and mindful eating has cleansed my body and given me the light and lean feeling.
I'm not sure that I thanked you, so THANK YOU for facilitating this 40 Days. It was a life-changing experience. I hear people say things like "life-changing" and often roll my eyes, but this time I feel like I get it.
there is so much more I could say but if I said everything I'd never shut up.
