Finding My Fit: Kaleigh’s Story

Written By: Kaleigh Atkinson


FIND YOUR FIT!

 

Our theme for May at AddeoFit. Why do I love to work and play at AddeoFit? Because Finding Your Fit doesn’t just mean getting big muscles or looking “hot” in a bikini. Team ADF is about heart, about feeling good, about caring about the person next to you on the yoga mat or bike.

 

However, those three words have been hard for me to swallow. I wouldn’t describe myself as a person interested in ‘fitness’ or being ‘fit’. I don’t look forward to lacing up my tennis shoes or grabbing that towel to wipe off my sweat before a killer workout in any room besides the yoga studio I call home.

 

My ideas of being fit have shifted because of the work I’ve done with Sarah, Jordan, Amber, Jen and all other instructors I’ve been able to squeeze a class in with! The teaching style at AddeoFit isn’t preachy or shoving their egos down your throat when I already feel vulnerable in my body and my form. I feel comforted here and know I’m in good hands. I am not afraid to ask questions and I love the camaraderie within this space.

 

I need to breathe deeper and practice what I preach when it comes to letting things go and simply stop with the comparing of my body to others. I commit to finding my fit everyday by simply moving my body in one of the studios. I commit to finding my fit by exploring my own yoga practice in order to teach you stronger, safer, more creative classes. I commit to a happier life full of acceptance by not comparing my body or my life to anyone at all.

 

I send so much love to my AddeoFit family and to all happy, healthy humans who walk in the door everyday smiling and enthusiastic about the work we are about to do together.

Thank You!

Awareness of the raw beauty that exudes throughout our world has always been Kaleigh's artistic motivation as a photographer and filmmaker. Finding pure beauty in day to day life and within herself came from a prescription of yoga and meditation. For the past decade, Kaleigh focused on Ashtanga Yoga, but she recently sought change from the traditional style and began studying Ayurveda (an ancient Indian system of medicine) and focusing on a daily meditation practice. The last year of her life has been devoted to traveling the world to learn more about herself and deepening her yoga practice. Living in the spiritual paradise that is Byron Bay, Australia opened Kaleigh's eyes to a new perspective on holistic wellness and the yogic lifestyle. Kaleigh moved from Byron Bay to Bali and the Blue Mountains in Australia to participate in a truly life changing 10 day silent meditation retreat known as Vipassana. Finalizing a year of travel and study, Kaleigh visited Mexico to fulfill her 200 hour yoga teacher training. As a teacher, Kaleigh's yogic philosophy will ground you in the present moment of spirit & body. You'll sweat, laugh, grow stronger and more flexible - and simply feel healthier, mentally and physically.
