Wanted to share my experience about my back pain, before and after joining Yogavijnana. I was having back pain since 10+ years and was trying to cut down the pain thru yoga,especially adapting to Surya namaskar. For few weeks it used to reduce but later pain gets more pain full and very uncomfortable and hence I used to stop the practice. Like this I attempted several times but the experience remained same. Friend of mine pulled me and made me take trial class at Yogavijnana. After the class, I started feeling comfortable. But due to my past experience, I was hesitant to spend time and money. Then I spoke to Vinay on this and told him that I will join the class only for three months and experiment my self. This time it worked…. I have no pain since 3+ months and forget pain, I am at ease in movements also, regular player of badminton player with my son and able to compete my 15 year old energetic son. So far my experience with Yogavijnana is, it is not just asana or surya namaskar you do but relaxation is very very important and this was made realize by Vinay. Not just relaxation but particular relaxation techniques for particular yoga asana is very important and breathing properly. I am very much comfortable with surya namaskar and my back now. To conclude, it is not just yoga that one should do but perceive it in appropriate way, continue the practice , and Vinay showed how to perceive it in a right manner. Thank you Vinay
Yogavijnana is one of the best yoga therapy centres I have come across so far. Vinay, the Yoga Guru at Yogavijnana, has initiated certain techniques to cure chronic pains in a scientific way. I had severe lower back pain due to disc prolapse, and now after taking yoga therapy classes, i am happy to say that my pain has drastically reduced. Thanks to Vinay’s healing hands. I would definitely recommend Yogavijnana for overall wellbeing and also to cure ailments.
