One of the biggest benefits I have personally experienced (aside from the GLORIOUS stress reduction) by practicing yoga here is greater awareness of my body – and this is where the weight loss and greater flexibility comes in.
For the past year I’ve been practicing 3-5 times a week, have dropped over 50 pounds and all but a few modifications, and the injury for which I had a surgical consult hardly ever bothers me — no surgery required!
All that practice has paid off because now I stand straighter, more flexible, stronger in the core, no more back pain, lower blood pressure and the upside is I have lost almost 20lbs
Brian and his teachers pay very close attention to each student, so when I spoke with him about my concerns regarding the old injury, he assured me he would help me to work on strengthening the area I had fractured. I feel like I have finally gained back the 1/2 inch I lost in height from my compression fracture- 8 years later- all thanks to my yoga practice at this studio.
