About Ruby

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have been exploring all my life yet not really in tune with my body.

Growing up, I had an active family that set a wonderful example of a healthy lifestyle.  I would push myself to extremes while ignoring what my body was telling me.

At some point, my body shouted back and stopped me in my tracks. For example:

 

 

  • Extreme lactic acid build up in my muscles forced me to stop working for Outward Bound
  • Painful knees that needed to be scoped yet found the power of my own body’s healing and yoga posturing to assist them
  • Joint pain throughout my body
  • Back surgery  that forced me to start a new way
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia sent me on a path to learn how to simplify even more and de-stress my life.

Since then, I have been led by a desire to feel better in my body.

I am learning to honor and listen to my body’s wisdom.

Yoga, especially, has provided the path for me to continue to grow and explore what it truly means to connect with self and others with compassion. Aligning with feeling good is a choice.

I feel as though Yoga saved my life.

Now I would like to share what I have learned with you
