JESS “AAYLA” KAISK
Throughout my life I always knew that there was something missing, something that I was searching for to fill my soul with wonder, and never knew exactly what or where it was. When I found myself newly married, moved to a new state with no one around, with no real career, I stumbled across a yoga studio that offered teacher training.
“This would be fun.” I though to myself.
I never imagined the path it would put me on, the void that it would help me heal, the endless journey inward it brought to me, or the other paths that I have travelled because of it. Finally, after many failed attempts at finding it, I found home. It was within me all along, I just needed help finding it. I will be eternally grateful to my teacher Sandy Hicks, owner of Grounded by Yoga, LLC, for helping me find my home, embracing me when I didn’t want to embrace myself, and loving me when I didn’t understand why anyone would. To my husband Michael, who has been 100% supportive, even when I was blinded to his support, who helped me study, helped me trust. I am beyond blessed by the people in my life who have helped me find this journey, and am filled with gratitude by their endless supply of love and laughter.
For all those searching, stop. What you are searching for will find you when you least expect it. I hope you enjoy the blog, hope that you find something useful from it, and hope that you feel the love, compassion, and peace I want to share with you here at Sacred Grove Studio!
