Hi! Welcome to YogiNest. Let’s get reacquainted.
YogiNest was created in 2015 when I realized people needed more. I knew people needed more because I needed more. I’ve never felt more hopeless than I did when Lupus took control of my body, and honestly all of my hopes and dreams. I was unhappy with the care I was receiving and took matters into my own hands. I don’t know where I’d be without mindfulness, yoga, and meditation. Getting my mental health in order made ALL the difference on my journey to recovery. I created YogiNest with the hope that I would meet people who were curious about complementary and alternative therapies alongside conventional medical treatments that were prescribed by their doctors. I ended up just meeting people who only wanted to do yoga. Which is totally fine, but I wanted more! Then something magical and organic happened, over 50% of my yoga students turned into yoga and mindfulness students, because as it turns out…people wanted more! What was showing up in their bodies on their mat was also showing up in their daily lives. Body pain seemed to be directly connected to emotional pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and more. So YogiNest began to morph into my ultimate vision, a place to get more! People want to be seen & heard in a safe place by someone who can hold space for them without judgement, that’s what YogiNest provides. YogiNest specializes in the one-on-one experience! Each session is tailored to your specific needs. The thing that’s so special about these one-on-one tailored sessions is that they change with you, and if you’re anything like me you’re always growing and changing. That’s a good thing by the way, change is good, growth is good. So if we’re constantly changing and growing shouldn’t our complementary and alternative therapies change with us as we grow…I think so! I like to think about this practice like the process of metamorphosis. You come in as an egg, hatch into a caterpillar, form into a pupa/chrysalis, and finally emerge as a butterfly. Everyone has to start somewhere, we’re all beginners at some point, then we learn and grow and hopefully find versions of ourselves along the way that we love and can learn from until we shed our skin and change once again. This practice is about living in the present moment, embracing change & impermanence, making peace with our past and taking with us the lessons we were meant to learn, and allowing ourselves to shift and grow and change. Through mindfulness, yoga, and meditation practices YogiNest helps you move through life with more ease and less body aches and pains.
