I had this odd sensation in my body after my third OM. I thought, “Something must be wrong with this practice, there is something weird happening with my body.” And then I realized that I wasn’t in pain. I hadn’t felt that in years. My back was always in pain, and for a minute then, I experienced what my body felt like without this sharp pressure and tightness in my lower back. After that, there was no doubt, I had to have this practice in my life.

Two years later, my auto-immune hypothyroidism is gone, my back pain is gone. And where I used to feel like I was running on fumes with slowly deteriorating health, I now feel new energy and aliveness.

I used to feel isolated or misunderstood. I was often surrounded by people but felt lonely. I learned how to connect and communicate in such a way that I could build the deep intimacy and friendships I always wanted, but never knew how to have.

My sex life shifted from being “pretty good” — but mostly about me pleasing the other — to being fully embodied, deep and rich, and fulfilling in a way I had never experienced before. My relationships changed dramatically too. I feel more in touch with who I am, my sense of purpose, and who I want to be in the world. This practice has changed my life.
