Meet Bansari @healingjourneywithbansari sharing her Father's Day #yogasavedmylife story with us 💚

"In 2016 I was 22 years old & diagnosed with Myasthenia gravis: a rare muscle disorder. It is an invisible disability which makes you dependent for every single thing. I was weak, unhappy, worried & lost my confidence"


"For 3 years after my diagnosis, I was completely dependent on western medicine which did not help me improve, rather I was struggling more with the side effects

.


In 2019, I hit Myasthenia crisis stage, & I decided to find different ways to deal with it.. I was fed up

.

My father took me to local yoga classes and he and I continued going for 3 days my father came with me so that I continue my practice

.


I started capturing my yoga challenge & created a page to stay on course & created a health journal. I decided to start home practice by doing breathing techniques, as I was too weak to even walk. I was not sure how yoga would help me, but something felt different inside

.

I had previously struggled with speaking, eating, writing, seeing, walking.. I was bedridden too.. I fell many times as I was unable to lift myself up I was not able to even lift my arms. Mentally it broke me to the ground as I was completely dependent on my parents being a grown girl it was hard for me to see myself like this.. but yoga brought me back from that nightmare

.

Once I started practicing yoga my perspective changed & I started believing that I am the one who is controlling my mind & body I am not saying that MG is not there with me, but Yoga helped me to embrace it by not letting it control me

.

I had an instructor for a few months who became a my portal to yoga.. Then I started home practicing again in this lockdown.. it brought amazing results once again.. currently I have another instructor helping me with yoga and spiritual healing

.

On this day, Fathers Day, I can say that Yoga was a gift from my Father (photo 2) 💚

.


My father is actually a hero.. he saved my life many times & I MEAN LITERALLY.. he got me back on my feet I MEAN LITERALLY with yoga

.

He gifted me the greatest thing on earth apart from my life & it was YOGA and I MEAN LITERALLY 💚
