Hi everyone! I am Hannah (with an H!) and am honored to be joining the crew here as a regular blog poster! I have struggled on and off with an eating disorder (Anorexia and over-exercise) since I was 14; about 16 years as I edge towards my 30th birthday.
I have been in recovery consistently now for 2 years since I left my job as a high school science teacher and began to explore the world anew. Through this time I have developed an intense passion for yoga and its healing powers and have been teaching yoga for about a year. I just finished my 200 hour training and am now working towards becoming a yoga therapist with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I eventually want to open a practice working with those who also have struggled with eating disorders as well as other addictions.
I also blog at my own site, Balancing on Two Feet, where I started writing when I went into treatment in December of 2009 and "outed" myself about having an eating disorder. I was tired of the shame and secrecy of it all and wanted the world to know who I really was! Since that time I haven't looked back and the support for coming out about this has been amazing.
I'm excited to be a part of Recovering Inspirings and look forward to interacting with you all!
