I would like to begin with two words:
Before I joined Power Yoga Canada City Centre, my whole body was in pain. I also suffered from anxiety and migraine headaches. I tried looking for solutions everywhere; from Chiropractors to Massage Therapists, but nothing seemed to last.
Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 – I will always remember the date when my life changed. A very good friend of mine coaxed me out to a Hot Yoga class at PYC City Centre. I was hooked instantly. I signed up for 30 Days to Level Up workshop starting the next day, and I haven’t stopped since.
I work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist for Toronto General Hospital. My area of expertise is Multiple Organ Transplant, and my work means I am on shift as well as on-call. This work can be stressful and rewarding at the same time. PYC helped me cope better with this particular stress. I have to be accountable every day for my job, but yoga has helped make me accountable to myself as well. I have found the ultimate balance.
Four months later, I have no body pain, no anxiety and no migraines. I am pain-free both mentally and physically. I now have a wonderful PYC family and community to look forward to being apart of every day.
This community has changed my mindset in the most positive way. I have learned patience and understanding not only within myself but with others. I cannot express how much PYC has changed my life and my outlook on everything. For this I will forever be grateful. My next Levelling Up will be Teacher Training. I am also very thankful to my husband and son for supporting me through this!! I found my “thing”!
