Hi! I’m Michael. I’m a 40-year old graphic designer in Kansas City. I have multiple sclerosis. I began practicing Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs™ a few months ago. I had tried some yoga videos at home but they were not interactive and had nothing to do with proper breathing techniques.
Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs™ has made a real difference in my inner life. There is quiet place in all of us. A place we knew before we were told how to think and act and feel and behave. I wanted to know how to get to that quiet place. I had doubts that I could rediscover that peace as the path to my inner peace was so over grown. Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs™ has helped me rediscover my true self.
I quickly discovered that I cannot breathe properly when I slouch. Now that I’m more conscious of my abdomen expanding and contracting with my breath, slouching is no longer an option. I have become much more aware of my posture and how if affects the rhythm of my breath.
In the short time that I have been practicing Yoga in Chairs I have received so many physical and emotional benefits that I get upset when I have to miss class. I have incorporated some of the poses into my daily life.
I was living an incomplete life with so much debris between me and my true self. If you don’t fully know yourself all of your life, your career, relationships, highs and lows are only partially available to you. Having found the path through Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs™, I feel much more complete.
