I always knew yoga was about life outside of the studio, but until then it had been solely an intellectual understanding. For now I remain opening up to life, to love, to graciousness, taking in the demands of surgery and the luxury of recovery with the exact same mindset I enter the studio.
Here I was, able to reconnect with my body and focus my mind, surrounded by other beautiful breast cancer survivors. The yoga class was fun, restorative, and gentle enough for beginners. I was in a safe place where I felt accepted, supported, and loved. From then on, I was hooked.
