I first started at stepping stone as someone who had just discovered yoga. It came by recommendation from a doctor, oddly enough.
You see, at 35, I was already having severe back trouble, nerve pain, caused by the compression of a couple vertebrae in my lower back. The doctor gave me a shot of cortisone, and told me that my life would change, if only I would start doing yoga.
I had to laugh. Yoga was something that I was always interested in, but never allowed myself to take the time, for myself, to start a practice. Now here I was nearly crippled from the nerve pain in my back at 35 years old, being told by a medical professional that Yoga was the answer.
I started a 30 day online challenge the next day. I had already quit smoking, I was already on the path to a healthier self... Why not..?
I was 12 days I to my challenge when I reached out to Pippa for private lessons.
Then the synchronicity happened... My day 12-15 online challenge was the exact same thing, that Pippa had put together for me... It was confirmed. Yoga... I immediately signed up for Pippas'30 day challenge and ran 2 challenges concurrently for a little while. I was on cloud 9.
I have to give these women a huge shout out. They are all amazing in very different ways, each of them, something has ique to offer to your practice, whether you want something light, as a beginner with Nicole and Pippa, or even something heavier with Leigh and The Rocket Ashtanga series, my personal favorite!
If I hadn't moved to pursue my own yoga teacher training in the mountains of NC, I would have stayed with Stepping Stone for a very long time.
I love them.
Bless you all. Warrior Women of Light!
I will miss practice with all of you, and carry you in my heart.
