A YOGA DESIGN CO. WITH A HEARTBEAT
"she took a leap of faith and grew her wings on the way down."
It was January 9, 2015, I made a choice to take a leap of faith with the HOPES of growing my wings on the way down. I left a successful 10 year career in the corporate environment in search of what it would feel like to be free to truly live my life.
I sold all my belongings and moved from Canada to Japan. After removing myself from all I had ever known, my language, culture, family, job, friends, food and English speaking yoga studios, I found myself really, really quiet. I could hear myself for the first time in my life. It is true what they say; if you get really quiet you can hear your soul speak. My heart longed for adventure, almost like a child.
So I began to chase every bucket list item I ever had. I became a certified yoga instructor and spent two months living and breathing with Bali. A place and experience so powerful it changed my fabric forever. I met beautiful people from all over the globe, whom I am so grateful to call my family. I trekked the mystical rainforests of Borneo tracking wild animals in their natural habitat. I hiked mountains in the whimsical forests of Japan, I swam in an infinity pool on top of Singapore, met with native tribes in the sprawling rice fields of Vietnam, and explored the ancient ruins of Cambodia, all the while becoming attuned in Reiki energy, the list goes on. But in all seriousness, the most moving experience of all was finding my heartbeat. I was truly living. Through yoga and explorative self inquiry I have been able to hear my soul speak and fall wildly in love with the process.
When given the opportunity to choose the next chapter of my journey. I chose the catalyst that has given me those wings. Yoga is as they say, a journey to thyself and I choose to share my yoga with you. With an ever present passion for style and design and a yearning conscience to aid in our global environmental challenges, the puzzle pieces aligned and Free Thirty Three Yoga Design Co. was born.
So What is FREE THIRTY THREE?
Free Thirty Three is a calling to take that leap. You can live your life with authentic purpose and let your dreams come alive. We want to encourage others to challenge the status quo and look outside the conventional box. We live in a world today where anything is possible, so start that business, take that trip, send that email, be true to what is in your heart.
Rumi, a wise mentor once said, “let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love, it will not lead you astray” From my experience it has set me free.
