She is also a big fan of Yoga.
‘Ever since I was a kid, I always did what others needed or expected of me. I said ‘yes’ to their requests, their ideas of beauty, their ideas of success.
One day I looked up and realised I didn’t know who I was anymore. I was constantly in survival mode, my body and mind worn to shreds. That was the first day I said “NOPE!”
It took a lot of hard work to find myself again. It took a lot of NOPEs: some scary as hell, others joyous beyond belief.
After I got my life back into my own hands, I studied, got certified, and became a Nope Coach for others.
I’m Suzanne Culberg and I’m on a mission to make boundaries normal and celebrated.
We should be saying NOPE more often.’ – Suzanne
