Description

INSPIRED VICTORIA PRESENTS: JANELLE MORRISON

Just seven years ago, Janelle was a professional Ironman triathlete when she was involved in a near-fatal car accident that left her unsure if she’d ever walk again, let alone participate in her sport. An accident like this would be a career ender for most people; but not Janelle.

After two years of hard work, grit and determination she beat the odds by competing in Ironman again, placing third. However, as she crossed the “impossible” finish line, she felt none of the fulfillment, peace of mind or true happiness she thought this epic achievement would bring her.

Despite surviving a close brush with death, Janelle felt that she was still truly not living; and it was in this moment she chose to make a radical life change.

She decided to replace her “hurry up and go” mentality with stillness; and began by trading in her racing equipment for what she calls “the simplicity of a yoga mat”.

With this shift Janelle discovered the power of combining movement and stillness; and chose to focus on helping people appreciate the beauty of here and now, rather than pretending what "might" be.

In Janelle's words, we are pretending that:

Where we’re going is more important than where we are

• We are the demanding and insufficient voice in our heads

There’s something better than this

• We’re not what we actually are

Janelle Morrison brings her remarkable story and inspiring wisdom to Inspired Victoria this Sept. Don't miss this incredible presentation.
