I have been active my whole life, but primarily playing soccer. After the birth of my first son, I also became an aerobics and step instructor. Once I had my son, I began having major problems with my back, which I mostly ignored. The day I found out I was pregnant with my second son, I also found out I had a bulging and herniated disc in my lower back. At 4 1/2 months pregnant, I had successful back surgery. The surgeon told me to stop all "high-impact" activities. However, I continued to do many things he advised against, including running, playing soccer with the teams I coach, and even completing in a Tinman.
A few years ago I realized I have been too hard on my body and if I do not want more back surgery, I had to make some changes. I fell in love with yoga because it is a challenge but one that is kinder on my body and is helping my back issues at the same time. The mind-body component is helping me accept the limitations I have but find there are many ways to challenge myself to be stronger. I hope I can encourage others to find a challenging and rewarding yoga experience too.
