Tranquility du Jour # 344: A Scary Diagnosis


Featured Guest:

Sarah_yogaheadshot_April2015Sarah Evans began her yoga journey in 1998. After being an avid Hatha student for a few years, she craved deeper study and became a registered yoga instructor in 2004. Sharing the wisdom of yogic practices expanded her commitment to live a healthy lifestyle. In February 2014, she had just celebrated her son's 4th birthday when she found a lump in her breast. She had no family history, but much to her surprise, a biopsy diagnosed Stage 2 breast cancer. After enduring a life threatening diagnosis, chemotherapy, radiation, and 6 surgeries, Sarah is forever changed. She found strength in unrelenting love from her incredible husband, 2 kids, family, friends, and amazing local yoga community. The events of the past year have served as a reminder for Sarah to live life in the gift of the present moment - one incredible moment at a time - with passion, joy, connection, and lots of love.

Q: Robin via Facebook: Kimberly, you get so much done in one day. I was wondering how early you start your day?

Q: Paula via Facebook: Hi Kimberly, congratulations on the newest addition to your family! He is adorable! I had a question about flying. I was thankful you shared your fears in your weekly love note back in June. It really helped to normalize the anxiety. I remember reading about the importance of breath while anxious. I'm wondering if you had any other suggestions on how you deal with flying since I know you are a traveler. I will be flying next month and am in my first trimester of my first pregnancy. So on top of the anxiety I also feel pretty crummy physically. Any thoughts you could share would be so appreciated!
