About me

My personal testimonial about the benefits of practicing yoga includes overcoming many obstacles.  The most notable obstacle being a long-time struggle with asthma. With the use of two inhalers, multiple times daily, asthma was an obstacle to creating balance and harmony in my life. Making a conscious decision to address asthma through my yoga practice, I focused on breath-work and postures daily as well as an overall healthy diet and lifestyle. Slowly I could feel things changing.  After about two years, I felt confident that my lungs were much more healthy. I consulted my doctor to confirm the improvement.

My doctor ordered tests and then confirmed that my lungs had shown a dramatic improvement. At that point, I was able to discard my inhalers. I have been free from asthma and inhalers ever since.
