Tribe, I’m honored to present to you the collaboration between the Yogi Misfit Sessions and Fierce Calm. Each month, we’ll bring you a compelling story about how yoga has saved a life, with bonus mini stories on yoga’s ability to heal and transform.

For today’s episode, I had the pleasure of sharing Mariel Whitmond’s journey. A yoga teacher that has an inspiring and empowering story on how she found value in herself rather than looking for it in others.

Battling health complications, self-worth, and self-acceptance, she decided to stop living her life for other people. Changing her high-stress job in the fashion industry to focusing on her health and happiness. She took her teacher training just after two years of the journey of self-discovery. Capturing the value of human connection, and sharing her compassion for it. From a place of feeling lonely to finding how to empower others to feel that they are not.

Stay tuned to hear more stories from Blair Sanning and Cara Forrester
