After a gut-wrenching battle with infertility, Michelle Cawley made a decision that would change her life forever. The path she followed led her to transform from a quiet woman to one who is putting herself front and center for all the world to see. The lessons she’s learned on her journey of healing to happiness are ones she openly shares in her new book as well as on this very insightful and inspiring episode.
As a dancer and choreographer, yoga was always one of those movement arts Michelle was somewhat aware of but had never tried. The first time she was invited to Om she gracefully declined. The next time Michelle experienced yoga was right before going on stage when the choreographer led the dancers through a series of sun salutations. In that moment, it struck her that she had never felt so calm and strongly connected to the surrounding cast members before.
Fast forward to just a few years ago when Michelle returned to yoga while struggling with infertility. During those difficult times, the healing powers of the asana and meditation practices brought her a sense of inner peace, understanding of self, and acceptance of situations outside of her control.
