I first got interested in Yoga about 15 years ago when I was suffering from vertigo as a result of postpartum thyroiditis. It was pretty bad and the medical community had nothing to offer me other than physical therapy to recover my balance. Rather than spend an hour a week in a clinical setting, I chose yoga. It was very challenging at first because I fell a lot, but a wonderful teacher at The Treehouse Yogo Studio was patient and kind. She helped me reposition myself when I faltered. After awhile, I got much better at it. Then it became second nature as the moves flowed fluidly through my body. The vertigo no longer had control. I still practice some of the postures I learned every day. It is better than any medicine.
In this piece titled “Om – Red Meditation” I see a beautiful princess in the most basic yoga meditation pose. I also see angels and guardians and a bit of Buddha. I hope you enjoy her too:
Also today as part of my Looking Glass Series, I offer you “Soul Symphony” which is a piece to revive the senses and make you “feel” the vibration of the Universe. Enjoy!
Beautiful painting. I wish I could do yoga but I am a typically unlimber dude. LOL
Thank you William!
My husband had a bad case of vertigo that lasted a long time, I wish we had thought of yoga. Now luckily it only comes back when he has a bad cold.
It definitely sucks! I have autoimmune diseases…my inner ear was attacked. Basically I did A LOT of moves that retrained my brain/balance to accept normal movements again. I also did kickboxing. Both helped me immensely. I still get it now and again too, like your hubby when I have fluid in the sinuses or ears….as it confuses my brain….but I just do my exercises when it comes on and within a day or two I have things back to normal. 🙂
