"I use it all the time."
"I'm a disabled veteran with severe PTSD. I've had terrible mood swings, sleeping problems, I couldn't concentrate on anything for very long and my anxiety was really starting to be a major issue everyday. I needed to get in front of this. I felt like it was running my life instead of me running it. I've been really looking for help and the VA is just not there for me. After taking some Stress Burner Yoga classes I feel like a new person. I use it--especially the tapping and relaxation breathing--all the time, every day."
"It's changed my life."
" I used to be skeptical of yoga, until I decided to try it for myself. I work full-time in a high-demand job that requires frequent international travel and have an 18-month old daughter. About 6 months ago my husband began a one year deployment and I knew I needed to take time to do something for myself. I started doing yoga once a week with Unyong, and it's changed my life.
Not only have I seen physical benefits (my chronic back pain has significantly been reduced and I now have a healthier physique) but I've also seen emotional and mental benefits as well. Unyong expertly demonstrates how we can apply what we learn in class to real life situations.
I use the breathing and meditation techniques daily, and I feel better equipped to handle stressful life situations by looking at them with a "yoga mind." I've even found myself doing lengthening and stretching exercises while I'm putting my daughter to sleep in her crib! Taking yoga classes with Unyong has been one of the best things that has happened to me. I would highly recommend it to everyone - especially the skeptics!"
