I make no claim that yoga is the answer to a happier, healthier life. I only say it could be a potential, compliment to any journey of healing and transformation that you may be on.
I am not a yogi who claims enlightenment. I don't carry a perfect downward dog. I don't and can't meditate everyday in a fashion that I'd like. My kids irritate me. My job isn't fulfilling. I cry, swear and even eat fried foods (gasp!) But I do integrate Yoga and my Program of Recovery into my every day...
This is my life and I choose to make it A Way Of Love. I love my own Program of Recovery and I love Yoga. Take from it what you may... i will continue to walk my walk and talk my talk... the goal of AWOL yoga is for people to feel less alone on their own healing journey, whatever that may be. I love to meet like-minded people and, especially, love to connect so that we all feel less alone on this journey, called life. Feel free to reach out and connect... we will make this journey A Way Of Love, together
Yours in Hope,
