Doing pranayama with Yogrishi and Akhanda yoga has literally saved my life. I refuse to take the medication that my doctor wants me on for my spinal disease and instead use breathing and yoga as a few of the tools I have been taught. I went from drugs, alcohol and suicide to a life that I deserve. I’ve been doing yoga for five years but the last year and a half with the Akhanda family, I have been fortunate to embrace the birthright instilled in me. My heart is filled with love and gratitude.
