Submitted by Danelle Wilson of Pennsylvania, USA
I have been living with Sarcoidosis for three years.
It has caused scarring on my lungs and prior to practicing Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, I only had 40% lung capacity.
At first my practice was very difficult. I could not breathe or focus on my asanas.
It has been just a little over a year and I have reached so many milestones upon my mat.
I am in remission and have begun to reduce my dependence on medications to get through the day without pain.
I am stronger now at 45 than I have been my entire life.
Although I have not conquered my disease, yoga has taught me how to set my intention, breathe and just be!
