Everyone’s definition of a dream life is different. This week we get to explore how one woman transformed her life – and it all started with an injury.

         While overseas Patricia Gavin slipped and fell in the shower and hurt her shoulder. Her introduction to yoga not only aided in her recovery, but set her on a transformative path as a full-fledged instructor.

Key Lessons and Ideas:

  • From Injury to Empowerment: Patricia’s perseverance through Bikram yoga not only healed her but also ignited a lifelong passion.
  • The Bikram Experience: Training under Bikram himself in LA, Patricia describes it as the “United Nations of yoga,” with practitioners from all over the world. Despite the challenges, it was a formative experience that shaped her teaching journey.
  • Healing Power of Yoga: Patricia emphasizes how yoga, especially Bikram, can transform the body and mind. From improving breathing techniques to calming the nervous system, the benefits are profound.
  • Daily Practice Insights: While a daily practice is ideal, Patricia suggests that even 2-3 times a week can yield significant benefits. The key is consistency and integrating the eight limbs of yoga into your lifestyle.
  • Personal Transformation: Yoga has made Patricia less reactive and more observant. It’s a testament to how yoga can bring emotional balance and mental clarity.
  • Teaching Across the Globe: Patricia’s teaching journey has taken her to diverse places. Her experiences highlight the universal appeal and adaptability of yoga.
