Jodi Ruoff’s yoga journey has been a big part of her wellness practice since she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
“I remember the day I found out. I woke up one morning and could not see out of my eye. Shortly after that I was diagnosed and that was the beginning of a huge change in my life. I was practicing law at the time and realized that I would need to step away from my career to preserve my health.”
Her doctor told her that yoga could help improve her balance and alleviate stress. And it has helped her with many of her symptoms. That is why Jodi wants people to know that yoga is truly for everybody.
“Sometimes getting out of the car and walking into the yoga studio is the hardest part. Even if you just come to class and sit and breathe during class and turn inward, you’ve done yoga. Come to class and put the day away to focus on yourself. I want all to feel welcome and encouraged. There is no perfect yoga.” Jodi explained.
“Yoga is not about competition — with yourself or with other people. I like to be accessible with my students. I want my students to come a little before or after class if they have questions or need help,” Jodi said.
Please join Jodi at her first class on April 13. Details here: https://theyogaboothzanesville.com/schedule/.
