For the past 2 years, I’ve been writing a ton and opening up about my experiences with anxiety and depression.
I started to receive such genuine and amazing feedback in response to my vulnerable posts.
Dozens of strangers reached out and began confessing that they spent hours reading my posts, and that coming across it helped them find the strength to open up about their own experiences with mental health.
I started to realize what kind of impact this truth-telling kind of work was having, and I wanted to start sharing in a bigger way, so I thought a blog would do the trick!
Except, I knew absolutely nothing about blogging!
I had no idea where to start, but I got started somehow and taught myself web development and design, and a couple months later, Rooted & Rising was up and running!
I took all my Instagram posts, put them on the site, and started writing a bunch of new pieces.
But in the meanwhile, as I was publishing all of these journal entries, I was working on creating resources to help support and guide others like myself that struggle with anxiety and depression.
I couldn’t find anything out there written by someone who had actually gone through what I was feeling on a daily basis, so I started creating what I wished already existed.
Just real, genuine, no-bullshit resources to help deal with mental health issues through the practice of yoga and mindfulness tools.
Fast forward to now, and more than 1.3k people have downloaded one of the first free guides I released, a yin yoga routine for anxiety and digestion.
I’m excited to share that I have FINALLY finished the first in-depth guide of the Yoga for Mental Health Series: Intention Setting 101.
It has all the stuff I’ve been using and studying over the last 6 years to regulate anxiety and de-stress on the daily, all condensed in one place.
And it’s LIVE on mah website! Along with a couple of other free guides if you’re interested
This one covers all sorts of things, like what intention setting is really about, how we can use it to create more mental stability, and guided prompts to get you started.
These practices SAVED me at certain times in my life and I hope they
