How Yoga Serves Gianna

She struggles with chronic sciatic pain, and uses yoga as a preventative & healing medicine. Yoga also serves her emotionally relieving depression, restlessness, and inertia. Yoga has helped her to release stuck guilt and other negative emotions from the past, and continues to help her release what does not serve her. Yoga also gives her a sense of connectedness with oneself and the community.
