My doctor had me on medication for high blood pressure and I went on exercising as I had before. I would ride my bike 15 miles a day, I would work out with weights, and with my heart condition, I developed chest pains. They were very painful, very frightening. So I had to find a new way to exercise that was effective and yet gentle enough not to strain my heart. I remembered Wai Lana Yoga and it has become a part of my life. I know I can do this for the rest of my life, no matter how in shape or out of shape I am, and it feels great, because I like to be healthy, I like to be active.
