Yoga saved my life. Twice.
In 2005, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. During that year while on a myriad of medications, I spent a total of one month of my life in the hospital away from my newborn daughter. When the more conventional route for Crohn's management failed to bring me relief, I decided to make some changes. I met with my gastroenterologist and arranged to wean myself off of the medications. We agreed to a one-year trial. I changed my diet and dedicated myself to my mat. At the end of my year, my colonoscopy showed no signs of inflammation, scarring, or any other indications that I had Crohn's disease. My doctors were amazed. I was not.
Yoga is food for my mind, body, and soul.
