On her website, Saeeda Hafiz is in an array of photographs exhibiting various yoga positions. In the first photo, she appears to be ready to take flight from the rocks along the shore! It’s followed by others in her at-home yoga gallery. If I begin (and stick with) yoga classes, and adapt to healthy eating, will I be able to outstretch my arms and legs to form body lines that look like an angled letter of the alphabet?
Saeeda’s memoir, The Healing: One Woman’s Journey from Poverty to Inner Riches, reveals a life that was tainted with domestic violence, addiction, and poverty that she witnessed as a child. Later, a college education led her to a professional job and the “middle class” life she’d wanted; however, the demons would not go away.
Today, Saeeda is a yoga teacher, an author and a wellness expert. You’ll have to read her book to learn how this amazing transformation occurred! One factor – a cooking class. A bit of humor: she thought it was to learn to cook “sophisticated” meals, but instead, was surprised to be in a class that taught about holistic nutrition and food.
Saeeda’s website is full of engaging info. I was fascinated to see Salma Hayek on her client list page. On another page, the sight of her creamy carrot ginger soup had me salivating. So go check it out! I’m learning new words, like hijiki and savasana. 🙂
Thank you, Saeeda, for the beautiful, “wavy” postcard! I love your mind and soul message.
