Owner and instructor Stella Douglas – My Journey
I am a professionally certified and internationally accredited Yoga instructor and teacher who has been practicing yoga for 16 years. I have loved Jesus for 8 of those years and stopped doing Yoga for a time after I become a lover of Jesus for many of the reasons you would expect. To your standard Christian, Yoga is Taboo. I am not your standard Christian and frankly no Christian should be. Jesus has called you to so much more than being bound by ‘religion’.
I received my training in India, in traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga. As an asthmatic, who suffered from a severe case of burn out, I began to take Yoga to a deeper level when I suffered from a major lung inflammation. Yoga was the only thing I could do without exerting or stressing my body while still strengthening and toning. Yoga helped restore balance and peace at a time when my circumstances said otherwise. My Yoga practice has brought me closer to God. But you don’t have to do Yoga for that reason.
You can do Yoga because you’ll feel all the benefits, be they physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Also, it’s fun!
