Fly Above Fear, Stephi

Fly Above Fear, Stephi

Posted on: by Hello

I slipped into my first Jambo Yoga class by pure coincidence. I had been looking for something to fill the space left after I resigned from competitive Cheerleading. It quickly became the missing piece in my jigsaw. I no longer believe in coincidence!
Jambo Yoga brought together all the elements of my life: the acrobat, the creative, the spiritual, the enquirer, the dreamer, and the hunter. It has helped me begin heal the parts of myself I’d hidden from the World. Through this process I have found so much love; it is from this love that I wish to explore and evolve the ways I can help others find safety, inside and out.
My mantra “fly above fear” vibrates with me in many ways. I have spent over 30 years as a gymnast in one form or another. The feeling of power and weightlessness I get from being in the air is exciting and fascinating, and I thrived on pushing the boundaries of my body, but this came at a cost. FEAR. Fear of failing, fear of not being good enough, fear of my own body. With yoga I feel my mind, body and spirit have connected and I have taken responsibility for how I react to these fears. There will always be barriers, but Yoga has given me the patience and the wings to fly above them.
