Yoga Is The Key To Life

October 15, 2021

When I was a child there was a woman who lived up the street from me. Her name was Molly Snap and she was an amazing woman. I loved spending time with her. She was in her 60's or 70's at that time I believe. I would go to visit her and a few times she said "I can't visit right now, I'm doing yoga" and she at one time told me that if she didn't stay focused on her yoga it would fall apart and she would be sad. After that, if I went to visit Molly and I saw her doing yoga in her living room I would just walk away and not disturb her. Many years later she passed away but I have always had Molly in my heart and mind and probably always will. 

When I was in my 30's I kept thinking about yoga. I knew nothing about it but it was in my head all the time and I finally realized I was being pushed (by the angels or my guides) to explore a yoga class. I ended up at a yoga studio owned by Di Tyssen in Las Vegas. I don't recall the name of the studio now though, too many years have passed. 

Di was a great teacher. She taught Bikram Hot Yoga and Ashtanga. I struggled to go to class everyday. I would do 2 or 3 days in a row and I would be so tired I would have to take a day off, sometimes two days! I do not have a typical yoga type body and I think I struggled a bit more than most or maybe it just seemed like I struggled more than other people, not sure!

Years later, I moved to Colorado and was still practicing 3 or 4 days a week and I decided to share my yoga with other people and set up a yoga space in my basement and ran an ad on craigslist for the people to do yoga with. I ended up with 8-10 people at a time doing yoga with me. It was amazing! 

Life had many twist and turns and I ended up having to stop my yoga practice for a period of turmoil in life. I would sporadically practice over the next couple years and I noticed 2 things during that time. One was my intuition was MUCH stronger when I was practicing and two my health was a lot better, in fact I can say with yoga perfect health can be achieved. 

I am now back to yoga and I am struggling to find the motivation and/or the time to get it done everyday. I am on my way to do a class right now in fact. I have decided to practice in the morning instead of the evening for many reasons. 

I am much older now and I have managed to practice a couple days in a row then I have to take a day off for rest because it is too much for me. I would have never made it through a teacher training program :) 

No matter how hard it is, I will keep doing it until I die, mostly for the reasons stated above and I believe everyone should do it!

I have decided to make a stand against the United States Post Office after yet another incident where a postal employee made me feel like a small human being and would not listen to my side of the situation. This has been a theme with the post office for as long as I can remember. They forget that we are the customer and to be frank they treat people like pond scum.
