I have been a resident of Spain for over ten years and have practiced Yoga for that time and more.
Somehow, I was unhappy with the results and the main reasons for this were my irregular habits. I suffered with many health issues for a period of about two years; the worst of those being severe sciatica pain.
I tried everything I could think of; Massages of various kinds and by various practitioners, but somehow nothing really seemed to work for me.
A couple of years ago my children, concerned as you might expect by my regular ill-health, persuaded me to take a trip to India, to try to get my issues cured or under control.
After visiting various hospitals, talking with various physicians and even undergoing an MRI scan, doctors told me that I had a major back-injury that could really only be cured by invasive and potentially painful surgery. I was surprised and asked the doctor why my good diet, regular exercise and practice of Yoga hadn’t helped my condition, and the doctors said that “whilst Yoga will make your bones strong and your body supple, it cannot help to fill the spaces in your spine left by your condition”. And to my alarm the surgery I required would be very costly at 3,00000 rupees (4,000 euros when converted at today’s rates).
As upsetting and costly as the prospect of an expensive operation was, I initially resigned myself to surgery.
In my own mind, I was never truly comfortable with the idea that this was my only remaining option.
During the next week, I started to look online and at books, and decided that a more serious approach to my Yoga practice could do no harm, and might even help with my health condition.
I signed up for a 7-day health-camp at the Yoga institute and on entering the building for the first time; my feelings were overwhelmingly calm, warm and comfortable. I found that I instantly felt more content, feeding on the strong, positive energy that surrounded the institute. I met with Smt. Hansaji and explained to her both my health issues, and the surgery earlier suggested by my doctor. Her reaction was a wonderful smile and the words that would begin my transformation from ill to good health. She told me to “Leave the doctors alone, and start practicing Pavanmuktasana. And start having light and early dinners”.
Her recommendation was based on personal experience and she even helped me to learn Pavanmuktasana. I’ll always be grateful to her helping me to change my life, and when I left the institute I really did feel like a different person.
The power of Yoga had changed my life. I found that my dietary habits and attitudes toward life, myself and other people changed too. At the age of 58 I began to regularly practice Yoga for just 45 minutes each day.
Over time it made me feel healthier in both mind and body, and helped me to get stronger and more flexible with every session. It’s been more than 2 years now since I started, and I no longer even think about my old back-pain or the medical treatments suggested to me back then.
I have learned that the human mind can bind us: to work, possessions or any other of the distractions of modern life, but our minds can also help to free us from the daily stresses and hassles of our fast-paced and often confusing world. I have learned through Yoga that we are the creators of our own destinies, and our happiness and well-being, depend primarily on our own efforts.
Last year I attended the same institute where I first encountered and learned Pavanmuktasana, and was so happy and excited to be able to dedicate a whole month to enroll on the intensive TTC (teacher training) course.
The course was fantastic, with wonderfully understanding and knowledgeable teachers, always happy to help explain the tiniest details of an idea or method. This course has allowed me to fulfill my dream and to help many others learn about and practice Pavanmuktasana; I am now qualified to teach others these mind and body healing techniques and principles, and I aim to dedicate the rest of my life to help ease the suffering of those in pain, as happened to me on that fateful day in India when I myself found Yoga.
One of the principle teachings of Yoga is “You can become your own doctor and heal yourself” and this is a power that I have tried to share with my friends, family and other loved ones since I returned home to Spain. I hope it helps every one of them as much as it’s helped me, and I’m excited to think that a gift that I have shared might help them to improve or grow their lives.
The above article was published in the magazine of The Yoga Institute Mumbai. After my two years of teaching yoga, my dedication and sincerity was appreciated by many of my students and they inspired me to get a title of Registered teacher, so that I could impart the knowledge of Yoga, inspire more and more people with my personal experience that how the power of yoga had changed my life.
