After having experienced 5 herniated discs several times, having ulnar nerve surgery, torn knees, sprained wrists, broken fingers, concussions and more, it took years of adjusting to understand how to strengthen my back and core. Working as a carpenter with a bad back I was willing to try anything natural to help the pain. All the competing and working physical labor was getting to be too much to ignore. I turned to yoga and with in a few moves the back pain that plagued me went away.
The practice of yoga started out for physical well being and turned into much more for me. Being led to some incredible teachers I discovered the opening up of my energy centers and becoming much more aware of my body. As I was going to yoga school to get a better understanding of yoga, I experienced visions of being a yogi in a past life seeing the practice of devotion to Vishnu. As I would sit in one position that next position was remembered. As it unfolded for me the grace of the gladiator and the devotion to his practice was overwhelming at first to experience. Over a year later and Iâ€™m ready to start teaching.
