MS and Yoga - How to Overcome Barriers

Hi everyone. I'm here to tell you a bit about my life with Yoga and MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Life can be challenging in many ways, but I believe throughout those challenges, we can always change our way of seeing things!

I used to be a dancer; well, I will always be a dancer and dance will always be part of me. So, I grew up understanding the importance of physical activities and healthy lifestyle. When I discovered I had MS at the age of 18, my main fear was not being able to dance anymore, so I researched a lot about MS and at that time my perspective was not particularly good. MS is an autoimmune disease and there is no cure... Your nervous system can be compromised, and you can lose your mobility, vision, or hearing.

One of the hardest things about having MS is that it’s an invisible illness. From the outside, you don’t see much but you definitely can feel it and that’s taught me so much about myself and how to balance my mental health. I realised that like dance, MS will always be with me, and it will always teach me a lot. So, I've decided to call it my best friend...

I guess Yoga was a massive complement of the whole story. It took me a while to discover Yoga but when I did, I discovered the beauty of it. Not just on the physical level but the wellbeing that it brings to the whole being, from inside out. The lesions on my nervous system were shrinking and I felt so good! Never really thought I would become a yoga teacher but the transformation in my life was so big that I felt I had to spread the word of Yoga, one of the best therapies for my body, mind and soul.

When things get heavy, take your time and be kind to yourself. There are people around to help if you need, we don't have to be brave at all times, and don’t forget, there is Yoga everywhere too. Life isn't always roses and it's ok to be down sometimes, but we will always have the power within to change how we feel.

Namaste
