YOGA AND THE QUEST FOR HEALTH
Jodie is eternally grateful for all that yoga has opened in the world for her. At only 7 years old, she went to her first yoga class with her grandparents in their seniors facility. Jodie had broken her neck in a gymnastics accident and had spent a year in a body cast, doctor's questioned her ability to be able to walk and live without pain. Her grandfather was convinced that this was her only hope of healing was to go to yoga. She was so young, she had no idea why she was there but kept going because the seniors in the class kept giving her chocolates. The recovery was long and a lot of work, but Jodie not only healed but returned to competitive sports afterwards. While she was young, she continued going to yoga classes when she was in pain and in her 20's took up a daily practice to ensure her health and longevity. That's when she realized the deeper meaning of yoga: that it leads us to consciously connect with ourselves and with life and allows us to wake up to who or what we really are and to what life is all about.
