BRENDA DECIDED TO TRY YOGA AS EARLY AS 2008. THAT HAPPENED RIGHT AFTER SIGNING UP FOR HER FIRST HALF-MARATHON AND DOING HER FIRST OBSTACLE COURSE RACES…
At that period of his life Brenda’s been caught right in the middle of a nearly decade-long fight with Crohn’s Disease and debilitating back pain. So after starting practicing some yoga he immediately felt a relief and the disease that haunted him for so long has been faced with a stagnating recovery. But all that became possible only after one of his friends, who also was a yoga teacher invited him to a hot yoga class. This new destination of a lifestyle has changed his lifestyle forever!
A pro-active college athlete and military veteran, Brenda quickly understood how healing the hot yoga practices may be for his health and since then he became an avid practitioner. Within a few months of following a dedicated practice, his illness was in full remission and his back pain was gone for good.
