Thank you for your workshop in Chicago. I so enjoyed your teachings and insights. In particular, I am grateful to learn about the practice of engaging Jalandhara Bandha during forward bends. I started practicing yoga years ago to relieve chronic upper back and neck pain, and have been so frustrated to find that, at times, yoga has actually seemed to make this problem worse. After just five days of utilizing this new form--chin lock during forward bends--I am amazed at how much better my back and neck feel already. I also really notice a difference in my meditative focus and energy by keeping all three bandhas engaged.
You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you so very much.
