I’ve always loved working out. I’ve always been an active person. I remember doing the twenty-minute workout as a young girl. I used to go jogging in the morning before I went to school. I like walking, doing Hip Hop Abs and I also have Cize.
Shortly after I gave birth to our fifth child I started suffering from dizziness. I wasn’t dizzy all the time. Most of the time I was okay, but sometimes I got dizzy and would have to lie down. I was breastfeeding at the time, so I figured that was the reason. So I started drinking more water because I thought I wasn’t drinking enough. I started taking multivitamins. The dizzy spells got better, but they didn’t go away. I decided to go to the doctor. I got blood work done and everything came back fine. My doctor referred me to an ear, nose and throat specialist because he thought maybe the problem could be my ears. My hearing is fine and everything is okay. He suggested I try yoga. My best friend does hot yoga and she loves it, so I decided to give it a try. I went to the mall and bought a yoga video so I can start doing yoga in the morning before getting our kids up. I bought a beginner video because I’ve never done yoga before. My husband wanted to do yoga too, so we started doing yoga in the morning together. We love yoga! My dizziness is pretty much gone and my balance has improved. My husband has a pain in his shoulder. When we started doing yoga it got a little better. It’s not completely gone, but it hurts less. I get anxious sometimes, but ever since I started doing yoga I’ve been more relaxed. Doing yoga helps you sleep better too. I’m ready to move on from beginner yoga. Namaste!
