Black Dog Living was born of a period of time in my life where I was experiencing Anxiety and Depression, along with regular migraines and back pain.  Coming to terms with personal circumstances as well as accepting my own predisposition towards an anxious state of mind began when a little black dog came in to our lives.  Walking her daily helped me to begin processing emotions, which felt good.  From there I began paying closer attention to the quality and quantity of food I was consuming (mostly emotionally), and Yoga followed.  Through Yoga I began to find a deep self awareness and compassion towards myself for the first time.  Finally balance began to emerge.  The kind of balance which accepts anxiety and depression alongside joy and peace as their equals, and as signposts towards transformation.  This is where Living begins.
