Share Your Cure 2
1. What impact has coming to The Cure had in your life (if any)? To say that The Cure has had a positive effect on my life would be an understatement. In the past 6 months, my health and overall well-being has been greatly impacted, and I attribute a great deal of this to my time at The Cure.
I’ve learned so much about myself, especially how to allow myself to receive positivity, feel empowered, and be encouraged. I deserve it, and I know that now.
Not only am I experiencing the benefits of being active regularly at the studio, I have made connections with people, and have been exposed to resources that I wouldn’t have otherwise known. I have learned how to put myself and my body first, how to hold myself accountable, and that trying new things (at my age) is not only acceptable but necessary to become my best self. I am finally allowing myself to be who I have always been, and The Cure has helped me accept this. 2. What is your favorite class? One of the best things about The Cure is the variety of classes. On any given day, if I feel like I need Buti, there is sure to be a class available at a time that works with my schedule. If my body, or mind, is telling me that I need something a little more relaxing, it is available. If I had to choose, I would say that Buti is my favorite class. 3. Who is your favorite instructor? Each instructor brings something different to the classes they teach, and no two instructors teach the same way. This variety is another reason that I enjoy my time at The Cure. I can pretty much tailor my schedule around what I need on any given day. I find that I sometimes refer to the instructors as adjectives….On days when I need an outlet for an abundance of energy, I say that “I just need an Anne class!”. 4. What's one thing you were nervous about? Late last year when I was looking for a new yoga studio, I stumbled upon The Cure at their previous studio space. When I finally got the courage to go, I sat in the parking lot and couldn’t bring myself to go in! I was really unsure of what was going on inside.
I could hear loud music, people ‘yelling’, and what sounded like banging on the floor. In retrospect, I can’t believe that these things that kept me from going in, are the exact things that have me going back!
Even now that I regularly attend classes, I still find that I get a little nervous here and there. For me personally, I struggle to feel like I fit in with a generally younger crowd, and sometimes feel as though I have nothing in common with anyone in class. This is something I am working on, and I am always reminded that w
e all showed up to our mats. Our energy is something we can share with each other, and is one thing we all have in common. 5. What's one thing you can always expect to leave class with No matter who is teaching or which class I am attending, when I walk through the door, I can be sure that there will be no shortage of encouragement and positivity.
Because of this, I always leave better than when I went in, both physically and mentally.
