I have been a practicing Occupational Therapist for the past ten years in Saskatchewan. In 2014, I was faced with challenging personal struggles. We have struggled to have a baby for years and finally after many infertility treatments and a totally failed IVF I found myself feeling quite depressed, anxious and having troubles with work as a result. I was tired of feeling this way and decided something needed to change. I needed something to help me cope better. It was confusing because I usually helped other people do this. I’d heard about mindfulness all over mainstream media and was curious. I was looking for a professional development course and came across a Mindfulness course for Clinical practice in 2014, I signed up and wasn’t completely convinced that this ’turning inward stuff’ could really help…because my brain was very busy to say the least and it didn’t seem possible. But I allowed myself the opportunity to experiment with it. I committed to a regular meditation practice following the course and began to see major changes in mood, stress resilience, clarity of thinking/mind and sleep. The more I started digging, the more emerging evidence I found supporting yoga and mindfulness for many conditions including chronic pain, but also for general wellness and happiness. This lead me down the road to yoga. I took Pain Care Yoga in the spring of 2015 and 2016 lead by Neil Pearson and Shelly Prosko, respectively. I started my 200- hour Registered Yoga Teacher training at Namaskar Yoga Studio in Saskatoon in February 2016 and completed this February 2017. I have been teaching regularly since 2016 and I am passionate about helping those with chronic/persistent pain, helping people live less stressful lives and learning wellness through love, kindness and compassion of knowing your inner Self. I believe we have the tools to heal from within if we choose to listen through strengthening our awareness of mind, body and spirit.
