“There are benefits and changes that you start to notice about yourself maybe 6 months later or a month later or just after class, but something kept drawing me back there,” said Mary Morgan.
She decided to do yoga teacher training. Mary Morgan had no intentions of ever really teaching yoga, but instead, she hoped this training would help to deepen her practice and teach her more about yoga.
After training, things changed for Mary Morgan. Her love and passion for yoga grew, and she realized she had to share it with the world.
She fell in love with yoga because of the movement and meditation. Noticing a difference in herself didn’t come quickly. It was very incremental and took shifts day by day.
“It was the only time in the 24 hours a day that my brain was not moving at a million miles an hour. It as the only time afterwards that I could sleep. Everything would shut off. Nothing else mattered. There weren’t any nerves. There wasn’t any anxiety. There was none of the grief. It was just me and my sweat and my mat.”
She talked about how so many people have this thought that taking time for yourself can be selfish, but in reality, it’s the exact opposite.
“If you come in here and giving yourself that hour then you’re gonna show up better in all the other areas of your life. Sometimes it's just giving yourself that time to hear yourself."
“We are all on a journey. We are all in a different place in our lives. We all come to our mat in the beginning for different reasons and as we grow and travel through that journey it may change what brings us to our mat. We all get there from a different way but for whatever reason someone comes to their mat, it’s a good one.”
