I am in love with yoga not only because I love practicing but because in just 8 months it has saved my life. I began practicing in Jan. of 2009 at a local studio with a very young teacher that I now consider my "reverse mentor." I am 53, and have had insomnia for 17 years, yes that long, which contributed to constant stress. Last year I found I out I have a severe case of scoliosis which I did not know I had even though it caused me to walk around in constant pain limiting my activity, & forget getting a good workout anymore. This, all while thinking I was living a normal life.
BUT in just 8 short months of practicing, I now sleep like a baby! This is unbelievable to me. I smile. I can think again, the fogginess is gone. If I don't miss my yoga my back muscles don't spasm and so my back pain is almost nonexistent! I have tried EVERYTHING, all the sleep remedies out there, mental & physical. I have tried all the pain relieving remedies like chiropractic therapy, physical therapy, etc.
Yoga absolutely is the answer to all my troubles. I am a person again, mentally, physically, emotionally, mind, body & soul! I am now training to be a yoga teacher. I will practice yoga for the rest of my life!
