00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:02,850
I actually started nine years ago when I

2
00:00:02,850 –> 00:00:05,549
was 14 years old I had just started

3
00:00:05,549 –> 00:00:08,370
dancing and my sister actually brought

4
00:00:08,370 –> 00:00:09,900
me in she was six years older than me

5
00:00:09,900 –> 00:00:11,519
and you know you always look up to your

6
00:00:11,519 –> 00:00:13,380
sister want to do what she does it

7
00:00:13,380 –> 00:00:16,109
sounded like a challenge to me and i

8
00:00:16,109 –> 00:00:17,250
think that i was a little bit

9
00:00:17,250 –> 00:00:19,260
competitive with my sister’s i wanted to

10
00:00:19,260 –> 00:00:21,510
go in there see how good she was doing

11
00:00:21,510 –> 00:00:23,880
because she had just gained all this

12
00:00:23,880 –> 00:00:26,760
flexibility her posture had improved and

13
00:00:26,760 –> 00:00:29,130
she just seemed overall more confident

14
00:00:29,130 –> 00:00:31,980
it was so good for my dance education it

15
00:00:31,980 –> 00:00:34,469
helped me stretch in the room and made

16
00:00:34,469 –> 00:00:37,860
my back more flexible at six years old I

17
00:00:37,860 –> 00:00:40,530
developed Chronicle optical migraines

18
00:00:40,530 –> 00:00:42,629
which was extremely young for something

19
00:00:42,629 –> 00:00:45,600
like that to happen I remember having to

20
00:00:45,600 –> 00:00:47,640
rush home from school and crawl into bed

21
00:00:47,640 –> 00:00:50,010
and close all the blinds and make sure

22
00:00:50,010 –> 00:00:51,360
that there were no sounds because they

23
00:00:51,360 –> 00:00:53,579
had sensitivity to light and sound when

24
00:00:53,579 –> 00:00:55,050
I started dancing they actually got

25
00:00:55,050 –> 00:00:57,930
worse because when I bent backwards in

26
00:00:57,930 –> 00:01:00,030
ballet a lot of it was unsupported by

27
00:01:00,030 –> 00:01:01,469
strength or anything it was just

28
00:01:01,469 –> 00:01:03,239
flexibility and I would throw it back

29
00:01:03,239 –> 00:01:05,549
and after those days I usually got

30
00:01:05,549 –> 00:01:07,409
migraines I could I started to expect

31
00:01:07,409 –> 00:01:09,990
them to happen so when I started yoga

32
00:01:09,990 –> 00:01:12,540
and we did the first backbend and they

33
00:01:12,540 –> 00:01:14,159
were telling me to eNOS weren’t my upper

34
00:01:14,159 –> 00:01:16,140
back as well as my lower and make sure

35
00:01:16,140 –> 00:01:17,400
that you weren’t just throwing it back

36
00:01:17,400 –> 00:01:20,150
it developed that back strength and my

37
00:01:20,150 –> 00:01:23,159
migraines started to you know happen

38
00:01:23,159 –> 00:01:24,720
less often and then they just went away

39
00:01:24,720 –> 00:01:28,590
and I haven’t had one for six years it’s

40
00:01:28,590 –> 00:01:31,290
awesome I really I’m really happy about

41
00:01:31,290 –> 00:01:33,479
it because they were pretty bad I think

42
00:01:33,479 –> 00:01:37,259
my favorite part is that the heat of the

43
00:01:37,259 –> 00:01:38,850
room really helps you get deeper into

44
00:01:38,850 –> 00:01:42,570
the postures and that you really do

45
00:01:42,570 –> 00:01:45,000
sometimes suffer for 90 minutes in those

46
00:01:45,000 –> 00:01:48,000
classes but those classes that are the

47
00:01:48,000 –> 00:01:51,689
hardest usually you walk out feeling the

48
00:01:51,689 –> 00:01:55,470
best after those classes camel pose is

49
00:01:55,470 –> 00:01:56,969
definitely one of my favorites because

50
00:01:56,969 –> 00:01:59,310
you do feel a little bit dizzy and happy

51
00:01:59,310 –> 00:02:01,550
after that posture if you’re doing it

52
00:02:01,550 –> 00:02:03,710
and usually if my class has been a

53
00:02:03,710 –> 00:02:06,380
little bit difficult the whole time that

54
00:02:06,380 –> 00:02:08,110
always makes me feel a little bit

55
00:02:08,110 –> 00:02:10,850
refreshed and relaxes me when I lie down

56
00:02:10,850 –> 00:02:13,130
in savasana after that posture I always

57
00:02:13,130 –> 00:02:17,090
feel better you know everybody that went

58
00:02:17,090 –> 00:02:18,290
to competition I think they feel a

59
00:02:18,290 –> 00:02:21,380
little bit more or r e committed to it

60
00:02:21,380 –> 00:02:23,990
and it pushes you a little bit in a good

61
00:02:23,990 –> 00:02:26,240
way to see where your body can go and

62
00:02:26,240 –> 00:02:27,950
see that it’s capable of I’d sort of be

63
00:02:27,950 –> 00:02:30,200
committed recently like right before the

64
00:02:30,200 –> 00:02:31,790
competition probably two months before

65
00:02:31,790 –> 00:02:35,330
and I just took the advanced class on

66
00:02:35,330 –> 00:02:37,880
Saturdays and you know focused listen to

67
00:02:37,880 –> 00:02:40,100
the dialogue in class more you know I

68
00:02:40,100 –> 00:02:41,750
should always listen to the dialogue but

69
00:02:41,750 –> 00:02:43,820
I definitely tuned into it more to see

70
00:02:43,820 –> 00:02:46,130
what I was doing right and wrong to get

71
00:02:46,130 –> 00:02:48,890
ready I’ve been practicing for nine

72
00:02:48,890 –> 00:02:51,290
years and I hadn’t been committed to it

73
00:02:51,290 –> 00:02:54,530
at this level before so it just brought

74
00:02:54,530 –> 00:02:58,010
me closer to it and ever since I have

75
00:02:58,010 –> 00:02:59,870
benefited a lot more from you than I

76
00:02:59,870 –> 00:03:02,270
have in the past you know mentally and

77
00:03:02,270 –> 00:03:06,320
physically it’s always something to work

78
00:03:06,320 –> 00:03:09,530
on for me it’s about staying calm in

79
00:03:09,530 –> 00:03:11,360
stressful situations that’s something

80
00:03:11,360 –> 00:03:13,070
that I think about in every class when

81
00:03:13,070 –> 00:03:15,590
I’m stressed out in each posture I you

82
00:03:15,590 –> 00:03:17,330
know try and calm down and focus on my

83
00:03:17,330 –> 00:03:18,680
breathing and it doesn’t always work

84
00:03:18,680 –> 00:03:21,260
just kind of like it doesn’t always work

85
00:03:21,260 –> 00:03:23,840
in life but that’s what it is to me it’s

86
00:03:23,840 –> 00:03:26,750
about you know accepting that you might

87
00:03:26,750 –> 00:03:28,430
suffer sometimes but then you can make

88
00:03:28,430 –> 00:00:00,000
it through it and history
