How yoga gave me back my life!

  • 19 October 2012

Although yoga is an ancient  practice, it’s lessons and benefits still apply today.  Practicing yoga gave me back my life, allowing me to regain strength and range of motion that I had lost during my extensive treatments of breast cancer and mastectomy surgery during 2005.  I remember as my body was healing and recovering, trying to dream of a time in the future when I would be strong again and have my hair back.  As I started practicing yoga I knew immediately that this was the best exercise therapy that could help me.  My chest and arm affected by the surgery and radiation treatments was tough and hard, I instinctively knew that yoga could heal my body.  During those first few months of practice I realized that I would need yoga in my life forever!  That is when I decided to go through yoga teacher training through Deep Yoga.  My teachers Bhava Ram and Laura Plumb were so awesome, however even as loving as they are, it was having a place called A Women’s Wellness Center to teach from that really allowed my practice to thrive.  Now it has been approx 3 yrs since my turning to yoga for my healing and I am so grateful for yoga, it gave me back my life!  I am forever grateful to yoga for the internal peace that practicing yoga and meditation has given me!
