Overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

‘Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about’. 

Inspiration comes in many forms. If you look around you and take the time to talk to those right by your side – you will most probably be fascinated by what you discover. We each have our own histories marked with highs and lows. If we have leaned into consciousness during these times, we probably have unique perspectives to share.

Our beautiful resident Yogi Elouise recently opened up on her own personal social media pages and shared the struggles she has overcome. If you have met El, you will know that she is bursting with energy and radiates positivity. Her passion to help others is why we feel so lucky to have her as part of our team and our Training Room family.

We are sharing her story in the hope that it finds its way to even just one person that might need to see proof today that there is light at the end of the tunnel they are facing. Follow El on instagram for more inspiration and motivation @el_german6

“It takes alot to share this with you guys! But I guess alot of you don’t know why or how come I got into my industry of work – health, fitness & wellness 🙏

12 years ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
.
An illness that debilitates your whole body with muscle fatigue, extreme tiredness, fatigue, digestive problems, weight loss, concentration loss, adrenal fatigue etc. Etc. Etc…. the list goes on!!!
.
From being a bubbly, independent, intelligent and full of life young girl 💖 I was left to being bed ridden 24/7. I was unable to do anything. I was sleeping more than 17 hours a day. Even taking two steps was a complete struggle. My family had to help me do everything.
.
The whole point of this post is to show you that we all have had lows in our lives. This time in my life was actually one of the hardest things I and my body had to go through. At times I didn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. But eventually I did 💙
.
In this time, I learnt so much about myself. It actually made me become such a strong person. Where I feel I can tackle anything now! .
.
One day when I was lying in bed, so fatigued from this illness, I made two dreams and goals for myself 🌟🌟
.
NUMBER ONE – to run a Full Marathon when I was better… so last year I ran TWO!!! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ They were two very emotional and special runs for me 💖
.
NUMBER TWO – was to always help OTHERS. To help everyone I ever met. The people that don’t feel like they fit in, people that need motivation, support, kindness and love. And to help other people achieve their goals and dreams.
.
I want to thank my close family and friends ❤ who today know how far I have come!
.
And I wouldn’t have changed anything. The struggles just have driven me so much to help others 🙏 It also has made me live my life to the fullest every day now!

If you have taken the time to read this… I thank you very much 💙 It means so much to me x x”
