flexibility

Yoga practice played an amazingly important role in my life and health improvement. I practised yoga for the first time about 11 years ago as a student and I loved it from the very start. I can’t remember why I stopped attending yoga but I clearly remember how much I missed it. I came back to my yoga adventure in May 2011 after appointment with my allergist who described the capacity of my lungs as very poor for my age and prescribed some drugs to be taken regularly which I have always struggled with.
For few days I tried to take all the medication prescribed, but I wasn’ t happy about it and decided I would improve my health my own way. I have joined the local gym and started to practice yoga 3-4 times a week, focusing on breathing technique, combined with some aerobic classes. It was very challenging to begin with but I got hooked into pretty quickly and enjoyed every minute of it.
After four months I went back to my allergist with remarkable results. Capacity of my lungs had improved by 10%. My doctor was really pleased with my result I was pleased with the way I had achieved it. That day I knew I would never stop practising yoga. It is my way of life, my passion and my medicine.
In October 2013 I had another check up and my health is still improving.
Last year I have completed British Wheel of Yoga Foundation L1 course and I am looking forward to starting teaching course, hopefully at the end of this year. I would like to share my yoga ‘journey’ with you.
