My sister introduced me to yoga about 3 years ago. I went twice and decided that it was not for me. I was doing pilates and zumba at the time which I really liked the pace of both of them and yoga just seemed a little to slow for me . I couldn’t get my head in it. About a year later, I was having a hard time sleeping well. I have always talked and did a little walking in my sleep, but it seemed to take over my life recently. I tried a new mattress, herbal teas, vitamins, and went to the doctor who said I should get a sleep apnea test. I had insurance, but apparently my insurance didn’t cover the cost, and the cost was not worth it to me to take the test. I knew that I could figure this out on my own. Not long after, I was at a women’s group that I below to and I was talking to some other women about my condition. It just happened that the women from Inner Sun Yoga studio was there and she suggested I try yoga. I listened to what she had to say and said I would come. Even though I knew that it was not for me, I knew that I needed some sleep and so did my husband, so I decided to try again.
Inner Sun Yoga studio is just one block away from us. I liked the convenience so I decided to walk to class one day. I am sure you know where this is going, but after class I felt great. I felt like I got a good workout in and I felt more relaxed. I tend to be a pretty high energy person and have to remind myself to relax more often than not. Anyway, that evening, I slept a little bit better and so did my husband so I decided to go back. After the second session, I was hooked. I did try other instructors and noticed that each one conducted their class a little differently which meant that I was getting something different from each class and instructor. The longer I went, I learned which classes and which instructors were giving me what I needed.
It has now been three years since the first time I have gone and though I still do a little talking in my sleep once in awhile, I do sleep much more soundly, I need less hours and I have learned to relax throughout my day. I am so thankful for Deb at Inner Sun Yoga Studio for convincing me to come back.
