Over these 9 months, I had the opportunity to challenge and honor myself with a variety of classes and workshops that do indeed change your body, mind and spirit. The instructors and the people inside these walls offer light, love and encouragement. Here we are reminded that “we can do hard things!” With all that, I’m down nearly 30lbs, my blood pressure is normal, my anxiety and depression gone. I accept and love myself again. My body is stronger than ever and I’ve met so many new and wonderful humans that I now claim as friends.
