Create Your Journey Within with Kelly Smith
Kelly Smith is a globally celebrated yoga and meditation teacher, E-RYT 500 /YACEP, founder of Yoga For You, and host of the iTunes chart-topping podcasts, Mindful In Minutes and Meditation Mama.
Kelly specializes in the non-physical limbs of yoga and is best known for her master trainings in meditation, restorative yoga, and yoga nidra and her international retreats.
Kelly’s earliest experience with yoga was physically stretching to train as a college athlete. Kelly even skipped Savasana at the end of yoga classes – she would roll up
her matt and walk out the door!
But when Kelly turned 16, her mom was diagnosed with cancer. That’s when she had her first exposure to slower, more mindful yoga practices. As her mom’s primary caregiver, she began joining her for restorative and gentle yoga. These sessions not only brought them closer, but they also were Kelly’s first experience of any yogic benefits outside of flexibility and mobility.
“Most of the time, we don’t realize what is happening or how we feel within.”
Episode Summary –
In our day-to-day life we are so busy managing the external world that we often forget to focus on ourselves.
Whether its in our work or personal life, our focus tends to be on others, and it’s rarely on ourselves.
Your stress, anger, depression, and sometimes diseases can be healed by going within and connecting with yourself.
When you connect with yourself, you become a better person, and you’ll find you stay more positive, focused, productive, and happy. And all these can lead you towards more success.
In this busy world, we are always in a rush, sometimes to achieve our goals, sometimes to maintain relationships, and sometimes to have a work-life balance. But if you lack self-connect, no matter what you accomplish, you will never feel fulfilled.
In this episode, Kelly Smith shares her story of how connecting within has helped her achieve success and live a more fulfilled life.
