Dirt to Life
I’m Jessica Drago.
Over a decade ago, a seed was sown in me that I could not deny: to help others pursue an active and balanced lifestyle. So, I was Certified as a Nursing Assistant and began to study Body Alignment and Structural-Muscular Balancing.
After a rock-climbing injury, 🥺 I was introduced to yoga and a new sense of body awareness. I pursued a 200-hour Teacher Training with Bridget Lyons and Tiffany Wood and was certified as a Physical Therapy Aide and Massage Therapy Aide. My understanding of body mechanics expanded and the seed the began to grow.
Even with all of this knowledge, I struggled with autoimmune issues that in my childhood had lead to
a near-death experience. I did everything I could to heal:
• energy work,
• connecting with nature,
• eating clean.
• I did everything I knew how!
After my son was born, I began to implement 10 new habits rooted in Ayurveda. These habits took root, and now I successfully manage the symptoms and skillfully implement them with simplicity and rhythm! 🥳
We all have self-imposed limitations.
The ones I carried as a yoga teacher kept me from my potential. 😔 I wanted to be able to have a deep impact on my students and create a business structure that would take care of me and my household, but I didn’t know how.
My growth was thwarted.
So, I began doing things differently. I started to alter my environment to move towards my vision.
The seed that was planted became a tree that said “Yes” to becoming a Yoga Health Coach.
This decision allowed me to work through my self-imposed limitations. My mentor, Cate Stillman said, “If you haven’t done it. You don’t truly know it.” So I’m doing it, and I will continue to do so for the rest of my life.
I learned intimately the challenges that hinder growth.
I learned how to handle hindrances that happened in the past.
I learned that I can’t change by myself and, if I try to change all at once, I create more stress and anxiety.
The wellness habits I now coach in the Wellness Adventure Course invited a way for me to say yes to a healthy, thriving future with the support of a truly wise ‘gardener’ (if you will).
It allowed me to work through core wounds and seek change in a sustainable way.
Does that sound like something you need? Would you let me share this wisdom with you?
