Our Story and Mission
My yoga journey began after coming back from a Navy Deployment in horrible, constant back pain. My plan was to do another round of physical therapy and hopefully get relief for a few months. All that changed when I was unable to get into physical therapy for 3 months and simply could not wait that long. Desperate, I began searching the internet for alternative solutions to my problem and found yoga. I got dressed and hobbled over to a yoga class down the street from where I lived in Virginia Beach. I struggled through my first class and found some relief, so I kept going.
Over time, I found yoga to be the best decision I ever made for my body. At first, my pain was simply less and flared up less frequently, but as I became stronger, pain slowly disappeared from my life and I began to enjoy exercising for the first time. Fast forward to now, I have never been better in both my body and mind and I am able to do so much more than I ever believed my body capable of.
My mission is to bring the healing I found through yoga to as many people as possible. Right now, it is estimated that 80% of people will experience back pain. Don’t be a statistic – it’s time to end back pain. Come to Balanced Yoga to embark on your journey from suffering to strength.
