Meet @william_shambo sharing his #yogasavedmylife story with us 🙏

"For nearly a decade my neurological system has been shutting down. By the time I committed to a daily Yoga regiment in the winter of 2015, I was without the use of both arms, my legs were beginning to struggle, & the pain was constant & unbearable. The muscle atrophy was so bad in my arms, I literally screamed and passed out the first time attempting table top. But I never gave up practicing"

"On the mat, I felt my arms and body returning to me – the process was slow and agonizing. Off the mat, the principles of Yoga guided me to a better way of living. A living that cultivates peace of mind, harmony in the body and a connection to the soul

.


I needed this peace. Two doctors had told me my time likely was down to a few years & I had no peace in my self then. Yoga guided me from my pain, the mental and physical, and to a place of peace and focus

.


And instead of continuing to degrade, like my body had been for three years by then, I felt it returning to me. Day-by-day, I worked to lift myself up and not only regain what I had lost, but somehow discovered even more. I discovered the infinite store-house of possibilities that comes from a committed Yoga practice

.


Whether I have mere months or years left doesn’t matter to me. I wake up everyday, kiss my love and thank the good Lord I’m alive. I still deal with pain every moment. Through the practice of Yoga, I manage it well and never allow it to stop me from doing what’s necessary. It’s often not easy, but it’s always worth it

.


Yoga didn’t just save my life, its keeps me alive still 🙏

.


Without it’s principles, cultivating in strength and excellent health, I would not survive with this neurological system. Practice. There's no medicine like it 💚
