Why Yoga is a boon for women

How I got into Yoga....

I was suffering from migraine headaches for more than fifteen years. I had visited several doctors and specialists over the years and tried several medicines but, at best, could find only temporary relief. Slowly, the stress of a competitive work culture in office, guilt of not devoting time to my family, and lack of any physical exercise or mental relaxation pushed me to a breakdown.

My doctor advised me to relax. I took two weeks off but was now feeling guilty of putting pressure on my colleagues to handle additional work. I just could not relax. I was back in office within a week. As I pushed myself further I had an additional problem – frozen shoulder – I just could not move my right hand. After two weeks of physiotherapy and a heavy dose of medicines, I found no improvement. I was scared that I would not be able to use my right hand.

Did I find relief in Yoga?
