TBI One Love Survivor Jennifer Potterfield
Hello my name is Jen. I have had 5 brain injuries: 3 totaled vehicles, 2 assaults!
I worked in a public school and received 2 brain injuries within a year from violent students with Autism after being assaulted and losing my career.
Besides losing my career (that took 8 years of college to obtain), a boyfriend or two, most my friends and social life, I spent a couple years living in paralyzing fear, depression and excruciating pain.
Partnered with a team of doctors, therapists and coaches, a brain injury support group, my dad, and the greatest rock of a friend one could ask for, I slowly gained back my strength and confidence.
I stumbled into a yoga studio one day about a year and a half ago, and my life have been forever changed. Yoga brought me a profound sense of peace. I learned how to breathe. I found freedom.
Yoga teacher training starts soon and I can only hope to be as inspiring and impactful to others as the teachers who have gently guided me into this beautiful and nonviolent new life. 💚🙏
Thank you for letting me join this helpful inspiring family!
