At the age of 19, I was in a terrible car accident that left me debilitating back and neck pain. At 23, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and 2 herniated discs in my low back. I was in so much pain that I couldn’t bend over to touch my toes. I was told by doctors that I needed surgery and was prescribed medications to ease the pain. Thankfully, I didn’t have the surgery, but I grew dependent on drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. Exercising was out of the question. I had never been one to exercise, but the thought of trying to move my body more than sitting on the couch was overwhelming.
At 27, I found yoga and Pilates and began to change my life. At age 33, with my husband and two baby boys (just 18 months apart), I moved to Florida and started Beach Yoga with Kerri. I ran local yoga classes at the beach for just $5. Everything seemed perfect, except my marriage was falling apart. My husband and I separated due to his alcoholism & my world was devastated. I began searching for healing, not only for my fibromyalgia but in my marriage as well.
It took many years of therapy, marriage counseling, 12 step recovery, and prayer to restore what was lost. I began to understand how my higher power, whom I choose to call God, speaks to us through our bodies and minds and how it is possible to surrender and trust that everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be.
Today, my husband and I have the relationship I have always dreamed of. No, it hasn’t been easy, but it has been worth it. I am living a life I never thought possible. I can do things with my body that doctors told me was impossible. I desire to help others discover that they can change and find freedom in their mind, body, and spirit.
I’m here to tell you change can happen for anyone. All it takes is a willing spirit and the courage to take the first step.
