COMING TO FULL CIRCLE BY NURTURING THE SOUL
I often forget that most people know me as someone who is an intense athlete, coach or instructor and rarely know that I entered this world of fitness through the mind-body side. I was a Reiki Master, practicing Shiatsu and teaching Japanese Yoga long before I ever walked into a cycling studio.
I have always been one who is extremely sensitive to energy from the people around and the changes within me. But rarely do I find myself talking to other people about this now days unless they spark the conversation first, but I felt that after reconnecting to my wellness roots I would share how much shift has happened and can happen for you, but onlyif you are willing to let it.
Rising Pain to the Surface
I love massages. I used to get them every week and then life got busy. Few people know this (unless you all have read my bio), but I am a licensed Asian Bodywork Therapist, and was a practicing practitioner before fitness took over my career. It is one of the moving components that placed me in the field of fitness. So I understand the importance of touch. I know how important touch is for survival, for healing, for happiness and feel connected, it is really difficult for someone like me to have very limited contact.
I found that when I lived in Ahmedabad, it was essential to get one every week. Not because my muscles were sore, (in fact, massages suck here) the idea of real muscle manipulation is nonexistent, but just to be touched. Touched - have physical human contact.
