Home Bikram Yoga Testimonials Depression



Bikram Yoga saved my life!

After a major operation in February 2001, I sank into post operative blues, and could not physically, mentally and emotionally recover. When I started with Karen Matthews and Lisa Fry of Yoga Tree Bikram Yoga in Melbourne, Australia in May 2002, I had been diagnosed with severe depression.

After months of counseling, Tai Chi, Gym, Swimming, Qigong, a stint at a health farm, I was stuck in a very bad place. My doctor prescribed anti-depressants, but I knew it was not the answer for me. I was searching for a way to continue living without medication. I wanted to feel balance, happiness, physical and mental strength, but most of all; I did not want to be depressed.

But I had not found a way to keep going. I was on the verge of starting Zoloft (anti-depressant), when I happened upon Bikram Yoga and Karen Matthews and Lisa Fry. The Bikram began to kick in, after 2 weeks of regular practice, and of course a lot of TLC from my wonderful teachers, I started my journey of wellness and happiness. The rest is history. Bikram yoga is my medication. I am physically and mentally the best I have ever been, and emotionally, I feel invincible. It has opened new doors to the self within and every time I practice, I am still amazed.

I feel I have been given a second chance at living, but this time I am focused, I live well, and I am HAPPY.

I am diabetic type 1 and have been injecting since 1989, when I was diadnosed age 6. I have been lucky to learn a great deal from my diabetes.

In March of 2002 my heart beat increased to 200 beats per minute. The electrical current in my heart malfunctioned due to the scar tissue from my 1985 heart attack. My good health from practicing Bikram yoga kept me alive.
