The Spirit of Yoga!

Similar to Yoga to the People, CT POWER YOGA has a methodology of a hot power sequence that helps its yogi’s connect to self and breath! The influence comes from Baptiste Power Yoga. I love it so much and what I love more than the studio and the practice is the owner, Aimee Elsner.  Aimee was diagnosed with breast cancer prior to finding her own yoga practice and she credits her practice to be a major part of her own healing. Although Aimee and I took very different approaches to how we healed, we have been able to find deep connection because of the yoga community she has created.  I practice 5 to 6 days a week and I truly can’t believe that I ever let yoga become something I stopped practicing. CT POWER YOGA has helped me come back to myself in so many ways and my yoga practice I cherish deeply, as with every breath and every pose I connect directly to my body and to my heart.

Post Surgery Results!

The results are in, and what do they show? I am completely Cancer Free (YES YOU READ IT and I WROTE IT!) , my margins are clear, there is no cancer in any other parts of my body shown by my previous pre- surgery scans, my blood work is that of someone who is in PERFECT health, no cancer markers at all!  My breast is looking amazing, because of the location of the incision my breast and nipple look completely normal and I have all sensation. I did NOT take any pain medicine post or pre surgery; I have had minimal discomfort and have been using my supplements and homeopathic remedies like Arnica Montana, Frankincense by Doterra & Calendula to give my body what it needs to heal! Before I know it my scar will be just a line and a gentle reminder to stay the course.
