As January and Thyroid Disease Awareness Month comes to a close, I wanted to thank all of my followers and readers for their continued support of my wellness journey. After becoming a thyroid cancer survivor, I knew that I wanted to give back. One way I have been able to do that has been through sharing my story and health updates. I have found connecting with other people who are facing a diagnosis of thyroid disease or cancer to be cathartic for myself and hopefully beneficial for them.
One person who has been a true inspiration to me on my wellness journey is the beautiful Fern Olivia. I met her back in 2016 when she was hosting a retreat in Montauk, NY and immediately felt a connection with her. She has guided and encouraged me to learn more about meditation, nutrition, and yoga, and has taught me to take ownership of my overall health and well-being. To this day, I am grateful to the person who connected us through Instagram and to have Fern as a wellness advisor and dear friend.
I was delighted when Fern reached out the other day and said she felt a calling to offer her Thyroid Yoga trainings (over 50 hours of videos) to other thyroid cancer survivors who may lack the resources to otherwise work with her. I’ve always felt a deep gratitude to Fern for having me at her retreats on Long Island and in New York City. Fern’s Thyroid Yoga sequences have helped me personally, and I know she will be an amazing resource for other thyroid cancer survivors who are looking to deepen their yoga practice and learn more about thyroid health and healing.
Fern’s announcement couldn’t have come at a better time for me personally. Since the beginning of the New Year, I have been in a funk. Physically, I feel okay. But emotionally, I’ve been stuck. I have struggled to use my voice in a productive manner and have felt out of touch with myself. Fern’s trainings in Kundalini Yoga, which aims to enhance our intuition, strengthen our energy field, and bring forth our creative potential, may be just what this wellness warrior needs at the moment.
I am excited to share this amazing opportunity to learn from Fern’s Thyroid Yoga videos with you and anyone you may know who is in treatment for, or currently healing from thyroid cancer. It’s always an honor and a privilege to work with Fern and I feel like a whole new person when I leave her presence. I know these trainings will be very valuable for newly diagnosed patients and thyroid cancer survivors. For those who wish to go even deeper in their practice, Fern also offers mentorship opportunities.
