When I first started coming to Goddess Fitness, I wore a size 16. The other day, I went clothes shopping and was able to buy clothes in a size eight. I don’t even remember the last time I was able to do that.
A few months ago, I hated buying new clothes because it would depress me, but I am now excited to go shopping and go often. My husband might not particularly like that latest development, but he certainly loves my new body. I went from being glad if I could just find clothes that fit me to buying clothes that look great on me. I have lost 34 pounds so far and am still losing weight. My friends have noticed that I have lost weight and ask what it is I’m doing. I always give the same answer, “It’s Goddess Fitness Yoga.” Every dance fitness class begins with this technique of Yoga and it works.
I know a big part of my shrinking is due to my Goddess Fitness classes. I can honestly say I have enjoyed every one of the classes I have taken. The instructors are great they are very encouraging and motivating. If some of the yoga poses are too difficult, modifications are always given. On the other hand, if you want to advance your pose, a modification for that is given as well. Everything is at your own pace, you decide how hard or easy you want to go.
I usually go to class once or twice a week and I’ve noticed a big improvement with my flexibility. When I first started going to class, I thought that I’d never be able to do the advanced poses, but I can now do some of them. I can’t tell you how good I feel about myself when that happens. I still have trouble with some poses, but that’s ok. I know that with time, I’ll be able to do those poses as well. Just thinking about how far I’ve come encourages me all the more.
I used to belong to a gym, but I never went because I found it to be intimidating. I never wanted anyone to see me working out because I was so self-conscious of all my jiggling fat. I would always end up leaving the gym feeling worse than when I arrived. That has never been the case with Goddess Fitness. Due to the way the studio is lit and the calming environment, I have never felt self-conscious and I always leave class feeling invigorated and energized. In fact, after the class ends, I don’t want to leave. When I’d go to the gym, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. I would also give any excuse to get out of going to the gym. That doesn’t happen with my Goddess Fitness classes though. I hate to miss any of them and I schedule all my plans around my yoga classes.
Thank you Emma. I’m sure that opening up your own studio has been one of your dreams come true. By doing that, you’ve also made sure that one of my dreams will come true too. I have always been overweight and tried unsuccessfully throughout the years to lose weight. While I haven’t quite reached my goal weight, I am now 34 pounds closer to it. I am now also confident I will one day soon achieve my goal. That is not something that I have ever said before. I am so happy that I discovered Goddess Fitness. I go to the classes because they are fun and when you have fun doing something, you’ll keep coming back for more. It’s as simple as that.
