So how did we come to be you asked? We were living quite the typical American lifestyle. Working full time, dual income, raising children (we have a set of triplets and a singleton), eating somewhat well but not great (eating out/ordering dinner), lacking sleep/proper rest, and engaging in reactive self-care attempting to constantly fill our buckets that were, in reality, bottomed out.
In 2017, Paul was managing clients for a high profile organization. He was dealing with sleep apnea and constantly feeling as though the rest was “not enough.” He would spend about 3 hrs on the road daily commuting, eating lunch at his desk, getting home close to the kids’ bedtime, eating dinner, then falling asleep (passing out). In June of 2017, a routine surgery ended with another emergency surgery the next day which resulted with a heart failure. The biggest take away from all health care professionals involved? DECREASE STRESS! So after giving the desk job another chance, he left the corporate world for good and discovered yoga. Through yoga, he was able to lose weight, change his posture, work on breathing, and increase body awareness leading him to becoming a certified yoga instructor.
