this decision saved my life

Namaste friend :)

On November 21, 2009—fourteen years ago today—I got sober. 

I remember pouring a bottle of Crown Royal whiskey down the sink of my Calgary apartment and declaring to myself that I would never drink again. ❌ 🥃  

I had no idea the road ahead, but I was all in. 

To be clear, I’m not here to preach and suggest that everyone needs to quit drinking. But for me, I was heading in the wrong direction—fast. 

During my fifteen-year drinking career, I spent the night in jail (aka the drunk tank) in every Canadian province west of Quebec. 

I used to be proud of that statistic! 📈

If I continued in the direction I was headed; eventually, I would lose my driver's license, lose my wife, end up in jail, or wind up dead. Three of those things happened. ✅✅✅

One time during a binge, I saw a deep sadness in my mom’s eyes. She knew that I was out of control. I used to be pretty good at hiding the addiction, but I was slipping. It killed me inside for my mom to see me this way. 

I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. 

Seeing that I was struggling, mom suggested I try yoga. The rest is history.

So why do I share this with you?

Well, yoga means a lot of things to a lot of different people. 

Some discover yoga to improve their physical health. 💪

Some take up yoga to reduce stress. 🧘‍♀️

Others choose this path to connect with like-minded people committed to living their best lives. ❤️

And like me, some choose this lifestyle to radically transform their lives. In a way, yoga supports me like AA helps other alcoholics. 

Regardless of your motivation, yoga helps achieve whatever is most important for you. 

In honor of my sobriety anniversary and the upcoming US Thanksgiving, I am thrilled to share an incredible opportunity to begin (or continue) your yoga journey.
