Like many individuals around the world, I suffer from lower back pain. I was in a car accident that left me unable to do most of the physical activities I very much enjoy – bummer!
I had always messed around with yoga here and there but never really made a practice of it. With my activities limited, I took my physical therapists recommendation and decided to get into a regular yoga routine.
I intended to ease into it but found myself quickly consumed by the way practicing yoga felt. There is something truly powerful that happens when I step on the mat that I can’t quite explain. Don’t get me wrong, some things hurt more than others but I always listen to my body and choose the pose variations that are right for me. I have never felt stronger or more powerful in my life!
I still have back pain everyday but I have found a way to try and move past it through my yoga practice. Whether you’re a veteran, a novice or never tried yoga before, I encourage you to roll out your mat today and see just how powerful you are!
