Please Introduce yourself to our readers
Hey I am Charmain Faulk I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Kean University. I am pursing nursing as soon as I can. I have been going back to school to take prereq’s towards my nursing. I am 33 years old my birthday is in July. I like to praise dance, read, write and make YouTube video I also like to spend time with my family and I enjoy yoga a lot.
How long have you been practicing yoga?
I would say I have been practicing yoga for about 2 to 3 years approx and before now I have been practicing I would say 5 years ago.
I initially got started because i was like that looks cool and i felt great after i did it but then over time i stopped i picked back up again recently because a lot has been going on in my life i pray all the time and go to church, when my dad passed Feb 2011 it def took a toll on me i didn’t think i would lose a parent so soon it def hurt it still does made me feel like i was missing a part of me so i decided to get back into yoga to find that inner peace again and to become more one with myself and try to decrease the stress in my life along with praying as well.
Yoga has transformed my life in a lot of ways as far as making clearer decisions thinking a lot more before i make a decision trying not to stress to much about a situation and it alsoi has helped me try to eat more healthier and it has also helped me increase my flexibility along with transforming my body into a leaner person than before. I just find yoga relaxing and its like i get that me time to myself and just worry about me on my mat doing what i like to do and that practice yoga.
Do you have any yoga tips for beginners ?
