I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in 2012 when I was 32 years old. There is no cure for this illness. In 2015, I read somewhere that yoga can help my condition. When I started my first Hatha Yoga class, I was not even able to bend my knees properly. But my yoga teacher Anuradha  did not give up on me and encouraged me to continue my practice. Few months into practice I became addicted to the good feelings my practice gave me; the “being strong” feeling. My interest in yoga then became a passion that I decided to take up Yoga Instructor course which I completed in July 2017. The reason I took up the course was not to teach other but for myself improvement.
