Following Your Bliss to the Life of Your Dreams

Following Your Bliss to the Life of Your Dreams
  A little over two years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was discovered by an onset of horrendous migraines, partial paralysis of my left shoulder and arm, as well as paralyzed vocal cords, and the inability to swallow food or water without it coming out of my nose. I had always identified myself as a strong and active person, and the loss of that identity shook me to the core. For a while, I gave up on physical activity, because it felt like, "what is the point of working out and getting fit if I am going to wither up and die young no matter what I do?" The full roller coaster ride of my life after brain tumor is a story for another day. However, today's story started with a YouTube video that my dear friend Misty, who later became my yoga instructor, showed me shortly after my diagnosis. This video featured a couple known on Instagram as Yoga Beyond, and it was my very first introduction to yoga of any kind. I fell in love with Claudine & Honza's AcroYoga flow instantly, and decided that pain or no pain, I was going to be able to do those moves by the end of the year... ... And today, I am so thrilled to report that my acro yoga heroes were generous enough to grant me an interview and share their wisdom on dreaming big and making those dreams a reality.
