How could this happen to a yoga practitioner? Well, is there a doctor free from disease? Come on! it’s human body, it acts like “as you sow , so you reap” . None is an exemption! Any body can be vulnerable to disease! If you are not taking diet like the fact speaks” Your health is 70% diet and 30% workout”. We are not Gods! I have seen many yoga teachers and gym instructors develop sprain issues, bone depletions, thyroid problems and even in few cases cancer. Yoga or the cardiovascular stuff you all do at the gym does not define your health, it is way beyond that.
Yoga is not a solitary concept. It only works in harmony with breath, proper lifestyle and most vitally diet for health.
