“The workshop has proven to be the key for me. Since I attended the workshop I have not missed a single day of home practice. It is difficult to describe all the ways in which this has affected and improved my life.
The daily practise of sarvangasana and pranayama/kriya are the life changing aspects for me although every few days I notice another new awareness and improvement Among the positive effects are relief of chronic hip discomfort, relief of eye irritation, improvement in ear blockage resulting in improved hearing, improved sleep with more time in REM resulting in the need for less sleep, and relief of headaches. Years of blocked sinuses and runny nose have been completely eliminated. For nearly two weeks I had large amounts of discharge from my nose and it is now clear and minimal only first thing in the morning. I’ve noticed a dramatic affect on the efficiency of my bladder. It is as if my bladder completely empties now in a way that leaves me feeling cleansed and that my kidneys are functioning efficiently. My spine and shoulders continue to open allowing even greater opening of the heart in other poses.
I have suffered my entire adult life with digestive and bowel problems. While this area is a work in progress, I am now having daily bowel movements and have nearly eliminated the feelings of bloat and discomfort. I have lost a large amount of belly fat and do not crave food for comfort or relief from other longings in my life.
My practise of agni sara, fire duati, and nauli are developing more and more resulting in further improvement to my digestive and overall health. The practises of the bandhas is something I now incorporate into all of my asana practise in addition to my daily home practice. I have a good basic of understanding of jalandara, uddiyana, and mula bandhas and have incorporated them into my life and my yoga practice. I find I after my morning practice, any other stress or challenge throughout the day seems much easier to face and let go of in a way that allows great freedom and peace. The most significant development in my life recently is that I now have a home practice and know that I will for the rest of my life. “
