inspiration of the month - debbie holland
I am a 56 year old woman who has never been one to follow any type of exercise routine, never been athletic or in any way physically active. I had all of the usual excuses. No time, too hard, not feeling the benefits, just not interested. In December 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In January 2014 I had a bilateral mastectomy followed by chemo. This led to neuropathy, anxiety, joint pain and stiffness, fatigue and gaining a lot of weight.
After two years of less and less activity and more and more added pounds I decided it was time to make a change. I called Burn within and spoke with Teresa. She explained the different classes and the next day I started. I don't think Teresa will ever understand what a difference that phone call made in my life.
I go to 3-5 classes a week and look forward to every class. I have gained so much in just 5 months. More energy, flexibility, patience, muscle tone and confidence. I no longer complain about joint stiffness and pain. I have a calmness I have never had before. I have also lost a lot.....pounds! My husband has also noticed a big change in me. Not just in appearance but also in attitude. I would recommend yoga to anyone ready to make a positive change in their life!
