The Army was supportive, but it took several years of being very ill until my civilian medical team finally diagnosed PTSD, and by this time my physical strength, as well as my mental spirit had taken a huge hit. I felt alone, and every time I was in public, a wave of anxiety came over me. Then, my new physician suggested that I try yoga. My first response was to panic – I wasn’t ready to be surrounded by a group of strangers in a new environment, but with support from my husband, my service dog, and friends, I finally ventured out of my house and into the yoga studio. In the back of the room, with my mat unrolled up against the wall, I learned to relax, to focus my mind, to control my breathing. I started eating better and running again *until re-injuring my knee). Now, more than 4 years later, yoga is an integral part of my life and recovery. Every day I either lay on my mat near the front of the class, or in my living room, or outdoors. I look forward to practicing with others and continuing to learn. I still can’t close my eyes during Savasana, and I still have much to learn, but I cannot imagine my life without Yoga” – Sylvia Bowersox
