Susan’s Story and the Evolution of One-Yoga:
In 2000, a dear friend lent me a VHS yoga tape. That was the beginning of my search for true wellness and peace of mind. Prior to yoga, I had spent most of my life trying to sculpt and shape my body into an image I thought was acceptable. I ran 5 – 7 days a week, lifted weights, and was always on some kind of diet. I didn’t even realize that I was suffering; I thought that was normal. By the end of that yoga tape, I realized I had found my calling. I was overcome by a profound sense of connectedness and calm, and I signed up for the first of many teacher trainings.
And so my journey began. I was focused and fearless when it came to studying and practice. I dove in head first and never looked back. I learned that I absolutely love learning. I had the good fortune of studying under some great teachers, and learned a tremendous amount from my teachers who struggled with their own baggage. All learning was a blessing and each lesson showed me what I needed to do.
Yoga isn’t about mastering a flexible pose. It’s about finding your personal path to live as your best self. It’s a journey that you embark on every day. And through a commitment to practice on and off the mat, you uncover the truth – your truth! Through daily disciplined practice and spiritual awakening, you peel back the layers of ego, attachment, aversion and fear. You discover the conditioned habit patterns that are buried within us, and unconsciously rule our lives. And, you find clarity, healing and joy.
I prayed, meditated, studied, journaled and practiced every single day. I listened to whatever messages I received, and I took action when directed. My years in the corporate world came in handy when creating this vision. For that I am eternally grateful. One-Yoga was born out of my passion to share the profound transformational gifts that can be experienced from the no-nonsense practical approach to earnest practice. My practice and teaching has evolved and continues to evolve. I simply practice, listen and share.
