Who Is Yogi Cameron?
You’ve probably arrived here because you are looking for something. It might be better physical health, finding your purpose, calming your mind, or discovering a deeper connection to yourself and others.
First off, please know there is something in a calling for change that is unique to you and by you following it, it shows courage.
You may have feelings of uncertainty, doubts, or fears about what this yearning, or discontent, with your life might mean. Having been in the same place, let me reassure you it is a beginning. You’re going to have to let the path unfold minute by minute, day by day. Transformation is not an overnight process but a life long journey.
In my former life, I was a successful fashion model who traveled the world, partied at trendy, elite establishments, and worked with celebrities like Madonna, Kate Moss, Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, and many more. I was well aware of the rare privileges I was afforded, however, I also noticed that most of my attention was on an outer material life of success which I knew had an ending at some point. This brought conflict in my mind because from one side I wanted this lifestyle to go on but also knew living this kind of existence didn’t bring me a sense of deep fulfillment. I felt disconnected and agitated yet I did not know what I should do about this for quite awhile.
Near the end of my modeling career, I had the privilege of meeting Nelson Mandela at a charity event at his house in South Africa. There was something in his character, poise, and sense of unwavering presence that spoke to me. He was put in jail for 27 years for speaking up against apartheid but yet he was not angry, bitter or seeking justice. With all the crime and inequality in the world he showed people by
example that revenge was not the answer to peace. This was impactful to my mind as I was looking for change in a meaningful direction. But I still did not have a clear vision for what kind of life I wanted to have. The only thing I was sure of was that I was ready to leave modeling and so I did.
Yoga had been a part of my life for a while as I had already done my teacher training. But I felt there was more that I needed to know.
I decided to go to India where I began learning about Ayurveda and natural medicine. The more I studied, the clearer I became as to wanting to be a conduit to bridge these two worlds together and to follow this path as a Yogi.
Of course now I can clearly explain how my journey unfolded but the transition took many difficult turns and many more trying times, which forced me to learn more patience and develop additional discipline. But it all eventually brought me to a place of immense joy and contentment.
So, just know that starting a pilgrimage will lead you to an expanded knowledge of yourself and your capabilities, beyond what you might dream of for yourself today.
Committing to the smallest change to be healthier can make a big impact on your overall wellness. I’m here to offer practical suggestions and guidance that are based on an ancient system of self-care that addresses balancing the mind, body, and spirit to be in equilibrium.
Having dis-ease in any part of our system doesn’t allow for us to live in synchronicity with nature’s course. Harmonizing from the inside out allows our well-being to exude and come into alignment with higher purposes for service like compassion, kindness, and gratitude.
I look forward to aiding your wellness goals and resolutions in any way I can.
P.S. Even though I am blessed to have worked with high-profile people like Ellen Degeneres, Marie Menounous and more, I believe Ayurveda and Yoga should be accessible to EVERYONE. Living a healthy lifestyle is not a privilege, it’s a necessity and it’s my mission to make it attainable for you.
