Funny Story
Years ago, on a painful path towards a fibromyalgia diagnosis, my chiropractor (a new concept to me) asked me if I had ever tried yoga.  I am guessing my anxiety, tightness everywhere and problems led him to believe it would be helpful.  I told him that it was too boring for me. I thought it was too slow, my mind wandered too much, and it wasn’t for me.

Fast forward about 7 years, and yoga has completely changed my life.  I am happier, less anxious, more present and building strength and flexibility.  Wow!  I am not kidding.  Yoga is like therapy, time for myself, and taking care of my body and mind all in one.
