my journey into yoga & Superfoods
I began my yoga journey over 15 years ago while battling a deep depression. I had recently come out of the closet, while struggling with my personal identity and self acceptance. There were so many factors that contributed to my depression. As a young adult, it was all so confusing to process. My parents divorced when I was very young and it was hard to know where I belonged. I was also a part of a religious community, where I made lots of amazing friends, but didn’t exactly feel accepted for my sexuality. When I graduated high school, I moved from Arkansas back to California hoping to get a fresh start and figure out what I was going through. It was definitely a bumpy start. I got involved in drugs, partying, and fought with suicidal thoughts. My lowest moment was being admitted to the hospital for a night for threatening to kill myself. I was so angry with my friends at the time for calling 911 on me, but thank God they did.
