My introduction to yoga actually came through my doctor. Towards the end of my enlistment in the U.S. Army I started experiencing excruciating pain in my knees and in my lower back. Turns out it was arthritis. After trying physical therapy and various injections my doctor simply said "I don't know, maybe try yoga". So I did. I found a yoga class on base and I went for a few weeks and it was okay but I didn't stick with it long enough to reap any of the benefits. It was too slow and I just didn't get it.
Looking back at the old me I can tell you I just wasn't ready to slow down and do the inner work that yoga requires. My ego was big and I felt I was too young to have arthritis anyway so I lived in denial for the next five years. In 2008, I found myself dealing with the same pain but now I was out of the military and living in a new city with no family or friends and the stress of transitioning to "civilian life". So I gave yoga another try and this time I was hooked. I had more energy, no more back pain, my posture improved, and I gained more strength and flexibility throughout my entire body. Yoga allowed me to slow down and to actually grow stronger in my faith. My strong faith led me to create wellness programs for those who were like me: stressed, injured, and in need of balance in their lives.
