My guest on this episode is the incredible (and hilarious) Stacy Meyrowitz. Fourteen years ago, Stacy survived a massive brain hemorrhage. The trauma of long hospital stays, countless scans, and three brain surgeries left Stacy feeling completely out of whack and depressed. A full two years after the hemorrhage, Stacy quit her job and lost touch with her old social life.
Somehow Stacy got the idea to find a yoga class and she credits yoga with helping her piece her life back together. She’d never done yoga before the hemorrhage, but she found it utterly comforting. It challenged her brain to relearn lost skills and it helped bring her into a community of friends. You will absolutely enjoy listening to this incredibly powerful story of yoga’s transformative power.
“I remember being in my first Warrior II and thinking, ‘I could be here for the rest of my life. In this pose. And be very happy.'”
