Dear Yogi,

Are you overweight, out of shape and new to yoga? You are not a healthy person and you don’t like working out? Do you think that yoga is not meant for a 240 pound over-weight new mom trying to get back in shape? You tried all the different kinds of diets but it just didn’t work out for you? Are you a yoga beginner seeking a no-nonsense approach to yoga?

And wouldn’t you like to change your diet and lose 42lbs? Wouldn’t you like to sleep better, breathe easier with much less or no snoring? Wouldn’t you want to walk up and down stairs without your knees complaining, and just overall feel better and accomplish more each day? Wouldn’t you want to start smiling again and find what feels good?

Then Radical Healing, Radical Transformation™ gets yoga to click for you.

I don’t exactly know how she got to my studio class, but four weeks later she was still around. Jennifer is one of my bigger students, very dedicated to her practice. And she comes all the way from Ikeja. I have noticed some distinct changes on her body. And when I asked her, she said “Yoga helps … and my husband likes what he sees. If you understand what I mean”.

I think the biggest frustration is when we can’t go deep enough. A single private or group class often doesn’t allow enough space to go deeper and explain things further.

Within three or four months a client from Ikoyi got cured from a numb finger and a stiff wrist, and on top of that lost four kilos. Another client, who lives in Lekki, experienced something similar: Within a period of two months she started taking healthier lunch packages to work. Today she feels more balanced and her love-handles are melting away. One of my clients living in Victoria Island stopped eating meat. Thank God she didn’t lose weight though.

I asked all three what happened. And they basically said the same thing: They just felt like adding more fruits and veggies to their diet. They just felt like having lighter foods. They just felt like having dinner earlier. You just start feeling like it …

Healing is an inside job. And yoga helps!

Practicing yoga is not about losing weight, practicing yoga is about changing your lifestyle. And food is a reflection of your lifestyle. Yoga helps you re-create a well-balanced life: You start to drink more water definitely because Chi says so at the end of each session. But especially because you feel like it. You start to crave healthy foods and stop late dinners. And you feel less stressed.

You have not started a particular diet, you have simply begun to practice and have become more receptive. You finally listen to your body’s needs and have stopped ignoring its signs of imbalance. You discover the real you! Food and habits are essential to your yoga practice. Hence, these elements constitute the sixth pillar of the Chi’s Yoga Method™.

Our bodies constantly communicate with us and send us warning signs. But most times we ignore these signals. We wait until we fall sick and have an excuse to stay in bed. We wait until our immune system is down, and we no longer function the way we normally do. We wait until we have a nervous breakdown before we make an attempt to change. But, I believe, we don’t have to wait this long.

It is about time to (re-)invite wellness, well-being, and self-healing into your life! Learn how to listen to your body and transform your life. God provided us with everything we need.

So, what do you think? Why do you eat what you eat when you eat? Understand more about yourself, change your habits and eventually lose weight. But more importantly, feel more comfortable in your own skin. My clients didn’t just get lighter. Today they seem healthier, fitter and more balanced. Funny enough, they seem happier.
