by this as I wanted to be able to do more for my patients. Years of long hours and a stressful work environment began to takes it toll on me. I was trying to help everyone except myself! I began to develop health issues- my body was literally shutting down. We knew the underlying problem, but finding a solution was more challenging.
I had always been physically active, and suddenly I couldn't be. Enter Yoga into my life. Frankly, I just wanted a reason to get out of the house and thought the stretching would feel nice. I had always wanted to try yoga, but could never fine the time. When my instructor would talk about energy flow in the body and the chakras (spinning vertices of energy along the spine), I politely thought to myself "chakras don't really exist, I have seen the human body." Through my yoga practice, I began to feel stonger, healthier and more energized. My vitality was returning. I may not be able to see the chakras but I could feel them. In fact, yoga was so beneficial for me, I became a yoga teacher!
