Yogis come in all shapes and sizes

June 4, 2017

3 years ago today I took my first chair yoga class with Heather.
At that point, my fibromyalgia prevented me from even lying on my back on the floor without excruciating pain (bad L5, too). I couldn't kneel on my left knee due to a past meniscus surgery. Getting up and down from the floor was ridiculous. That's actually why we started the chair class. I knew I wasn't alone in my lack of mobility and Heather was more than willing to work with us.


I'm not the same yogi I was then, not by a long shot. And I still have a long journey ahead.

That's the key right there, it's a journey.

 

Yoga has added so much quality to my well being. I realize how cliche that must sound.

My knee barely bothers me. My fibromyalgia is mostly under control, most of my flare-ups the result of weather changes or lack of yoga/ movement. My breathing has become consistently deeper and more deliberate, especially in stressful situations. I feel taller and more centered. I lost quite a bit of weight, and although a portion of it came back last year, I have a stronger foundation for losing it again, and going beyond. My general mobility has increased a hundredfold. My self-esteem, my confidence, my spirit... all continue to grow, and yoga has been an enormous part of it.

So happy anniversary to me :-) and cheers to many more! (tipping my water bottle)
Namaste!
Peace, love, and
Trust. Your. Journey.

~ Masks must be worn by everyone at all times while shopping. If you have a medical risk preventing you from wearing a mask, I will happily shop for you, but you must wait outside or return to pick-up your order at a later time.

~ Only a few customers will be allowed to enter and shop at the same time. This will allow space for you to move about the shop while respecting social distancing.

~ Hand sanitizer is available. Please use it as often as you feel necessary.

~ Beverages are available to go - cafe tables and chairs have been removed. (There is still a chair available if you are unable to stand for an extended time.)

~ You can still place orders for pick-up by emailing your shopping list to  thewonderstonegallery@outlook.com

These are temporary guidelines as we begin to test the waters of whatever lies ahead in this pandemic. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we learn to navigate the small shop retail world in a new era.
We are all in this together!
Peace,
Beth
