Joyce Bowers: I have studied yoga with many yoga professionals since 2007. I began practicing yoga as a necessity to help REDUCE MY STRESS and relieve my extreme BACK PAIN. I was an attorney at the time practicing law at Walt Disney World Resort. It was a stressful job that included many hours at work sitting. I “worked out” regularly but finally in 2007 my back “went out”. I could no longer walk fully upright, I could not work out, I could barely sleep and work. I lost weight from the pain; it was a depressing time. I met with several doctors, ALL recommended surgery. Then I met a doctor, who suggested that I consider acupuncture (I was afraid of needles) and Yoga. He explained how my disk herniations could be a result of my stress and lifestyle. After finding an amazing yoga teacher (I needed to go to three studios before I found her) and following a regiment of acupuncture, I was able to resume all of my activities. It was a long but amazing journey.I promised myself once I retired I would become a yoga teacher, and share my experience with others to help them live healthier, better lives. I tell you this story to let you know ANYONE can practice YOGA at anytime in their life.
