A few years ago I started my yoga journey quite unexpectedly. I stepped foot on a path that led me to become a mat and aerial yoga instructor for children and adults, and even opened up my own yoga studio with an ambience so zenned out that my dog drops to sleep in savasana.
At the time, I had recently been separated and it wasn’t exactly the easiest task for me figuring out all the fine twine details of everyday life. However, with most things in life, when the universe speaks and has something planned for you, AND you are open to it, AND you have some form of faith...whatever is meant to be, tends to unravel right in front of your very eyes! TA DA !!!!
Since then I have gained yoga training which, believe it or not, has enhanced my skills as a behaviour counsellor. I am able to blend behaviour modifcation. sensory integration and play therapy with yoga to nourish children and adults' lives through both mat and aerial yoga. I have poured everything that I had and have back into my business to keep promoting growth, and I dedicate my life everday to something that I truly love.
Coming from Barbados (in the Caribbean), it can be an umph harder to keep up with professional development. Courses abroad are in US dollars or Euros. Converting that currency to the Barbadian Dollar more than doubles that amount. Also, Barbados is a bit far out from most places, so on top of expensive course fees, travel expenses really do make that grand total to be one that is a "leeeetlle" bit pricey.
Being that my island is quite small, varied resources and alternative therapies are not usually readily available. My dream is to be able to add to my skill set as well as add more props, and maintain equipment in the studio (especially for kids and the elderly/injured/ill) so that I can continue to offer this form of love, support, knowledge and enjoyment to those around me. I would be forever thankful and grateful if you would share and support me on my journey so that I can share and support you with an even deeper appreciation of yoga love!
