I have thalassemia minor, which is a genetic blood disorder with low levels of red blood cells, which is what carries oxygen throughout the body. I also have low iron and supplements do not help. Because of this I struggle with fatigue constantly. No one would ever know it because I do so much physical exercise and have been an athlete my whole life. My point is, I know what it’s like to not have the energy to get up and exercise or move—but I know I have to. I know I will have so much more energy. Movement for me is not so much about sculpting my body anymore, it’s about sourcing my vitality and energy from it. When you exercise and move your body you are breathing deeply and that bring more oxygen though out the body and then more vitality. Movement is life. Get off that couch and go for a walk, put on your favorite song and dance in your living room. It doesn’t matter what you do, JUST DO IT! It will keep you young.

I have practicing dentistry for 32 years now pain-free. I started suffering with back pain for about 7 months and after many days of taking medication—from steroid injections in my back to Advil every day—I was given the name of a yoga instructor, SoulFire. I never thought that yoga would be my answer and was hesitant after hearing many stories of how you can hurt yourself with yoga. After speaking with SouFire and explained my condition I felt more at ease. She is very compassionate and only helps you do yoga based on your own flexibility—this is why you should start with a private yoga instructor. Who would of thought that SouFire would be my answer to practicing dentistry and enjoying my life pain-free again. As a dentist we all know what it is to practice with back pain. Imagine no more pain at the office and at home! An added benefit that I was not expecting is that you even sleep a lot better. SoulFire is passionate about helping people and it shows. She will help you treat your back pain in a caring and compassionate way. Thank you SoulFire for giving me my life, energy, and flexibility back again.Dr. Ira Koeppel
This book is Amazing. I am enjoying it thoroughly.
Thank you SoulFire for your wisdom and bravery in sharing your vulnerability and truthful spiritual lessons that can help all of us to grow and enjoy this life.
I am almost finished reading this book, I thought, I don’t want it to end. Then I came to the realization this book is actually like yoga it is never really finished, it’s the kind of book you can pick up over and over again to be reminded of spiritual wisdom and strength for your entire life.
Thank you again SoulFire for being a great example of walking your talk and sharing. Looking forward to book 2.
At the age of 19 while playing football I sustained a devastating knee injury. Doctors told me that I will never compete on the field at the same level ever again. I continued to play, which wasn’t a smart idea. Fast forward, four surgeries later, my knee issues worsened.
As a video journalist, I lug a camera and equipment, ignoring the obvious pain in my knee. I have had interns that have carried the 40 pound bags, but more often I perform solo. I visited several doctors, who have all told me that the only thing that will correct my knee is a “knee replacement,” all I could think about was the pain of yet another surgical procedure.
I produced a story on a woman named SoulFire. Her story introduced me to yoga, stretching and proper massages. After SoulFire instructed me on “how to stretch to strengthen,” I followed her videos on her website. After two weeks, the lingering pain in my knee began to dissipate. I could walk up steps a little faster. Four solid months of the SoulFire “workout,” I no longer need a knee replacement!!! My next venture, it’s on to her yoga classes….SoulFire taught me to “invest in yourself.” I no longer desire to live in the “survival only” rat race. Thank you SoulFire!Archie Snowden
