Life is full of surprises — sometimes good, sometimes bad. But, no matter what it throws at us, the most important thing is to have valuable tools to overcome any obstacles and win! This is a story about one of our Face Yogis, Catherine, who after undergoing a mastectomy discovered our Face Toning Bootcamp that helped her regain physical and mental confidence, and start leading a more fulfilled and healthy life.
Catherine’s Story Before Becoming a Face Yogi
It was right before Christmas when Catherine received the diagnosis no woman wants to hear. Her doctors had confirmed that she had breast cancer and recommended that she would need chemo and radiation to treat it. As a mother and wife, Catherine was shocked by the diagnosis! After all, she has led a very healthy life thus far.
She went into survival mode and protected her family by holding this painful secret within herself, until the New Year when she made the decision to have a mastectomy.
When reflecting on her “before” photo she said: “It shows how sad, broken and defeated I was” .
Finding About the Face Toning Bootcamp
Catherine continues: “[After the procedure] I lost a bit of mojo…I was walking a lot, but couldn’t do much else. I realized my face was changing because of the position I was [laying] in….I felt negative because when looked in the mirror I didn’t recognize myself, and it’s hard to keep going…”
Then, she came upon the Face Toning Bootcamp and felt inspired to regain her spirit and continue her path towards health and recovery both inside and out. She knew that she had to be careful with her body, which meant not doing much physically, but she could focus on her face. Here is where she had our digital detox to help her with.
Life “After” as a Face Yogi
Catherine’s strength, outlook, and story captured hearts on the Face Yogi community, and inspired so many of us. And my win is what she humbly repeated during our call – that the training helped her in the recovery and that I was an inspiration to her!
“You build us up from the inside. So many times I read the comment about glowing. And I think that glow is a light from the inside and it comes out of you. Because if you are not happy inside, you are not going to glow in the same way.”
“I’ve been put back on my feet. I’ve found my inner glow, I found my sparkle, and I feel like me again!”
When she shared her photos side-by-side, she said that people honestly thought the she edited them, and added: “The sad person you see in the first photo is who we were. And the after looks different because we can’t help but let the joy out and feel happy and feel confident!” And she has absolutely nailed what my teachings are all about!
To All the Future Face Yogis – Believe in Your Beauty
Many of us are fixated on one thing or another on our face. Majority of the time, women start my programs and they cannot even say “I love myself” out loud. They are unable to look beyond their ‘imperfections’ and see how incredible they are. And this is what my mission is.
I want women to not just know, but to believe in their beauty.
Uncovering that is not hard, but it does take work and practice, and that is why we show up every day and do our practice, why I assign things like “digital detox” and visualization. We have to turn off the negative voices we hear and tune in to our power as women.
Catherine’s Remarks on the Assignments in the Bootcamp
“Especially as women, we can be very hard on ourselves. And just taking the time to appreciate ourselves, and walk and read, and take some time for us. It’s nice to distance yourself from social media and the false perfection and focus inwards.”
Ultimately by the end of the 6-Week Face Toning Bootcamp, Catherine experienced a complete uplift and received an invaluable gift: she loves herself again.
“You guys have given me back my mojo. You are so nurturing and so supportive. It’s been what I needed!”
