A miracle happened in my life...

I think weight issues are humanitys problem. I have experienced from time to time being overweight. Especially if you are a woman, heading towards your middle ages and your weight has gone over its boundaries, it really is not a nice situation. For, weight becomes something that demoralizes a person both physically and emotionally. I have had to face weight issues at certain times in my life. Some emotional and psychological problems I have encountered left me with this problem. Of course, my unhealthy eating habits, immobile life style and the hormonal imbalances you experience after a certain age all had a part in my putting on weight. 

The sum of it all was driving me towards obesity. I have tried various different things to take care of the problem. 
I have tried acupuncture, some pills. Yet all my efforts had the yoyo effect and I started being heavier than before. When I met Franz, I was already thinking of how I could resolve this issue. I was thinking about doing yoga, I was researching it. Because yoga said, nothing could be resolved on a physical dimension alone. There was also a philosophical side to it. Thinking yoga would feed me spiritually too. I applied to Hariom Yoga Center. Then I met Franz Andrini. I took on a new path after I met him. During this phase, I was attending his program on certain days of the week. At home, I tried to do the breathing exercises he gave. I think in order to stay healthy and to reach the target goal you need to make an effort to chew each bite. Therefore, this is not a program I would say is very easy, but I cannot also say it is difficult. For once, you start getting results, you can overcome the difficulties. Franz's yoga style was not like anything I had experienced before. Franz's yoga was not focusing on breathing techniques and asanas alone. Previously I had tried a different school of yoga; I was doing movement yoga called hatha yoga.  Yet while exercising the style Franz teaches you, at first, you think it is pushing you a bit but then     there is an unbelievable relaxation and comfort in your body. It is a magnificent system. 

I believe that people that are determined can succeed in Franz's program. I have lost weight with Franz's program and I can say that the most basic thing I have learned is to try doing what is asked. I am trying to maintain the 25 kilos I lost, I do have ups and downs every once in a while. What sets this program apart from others is that it covers the deep dimensions and the whole of the issue. Not that I sometimes lose my self confidence regarding weight, but I know that when you pay attention to certain things, that is when you continue practicing yoga I think the metabolism gains balance and your self confidence increases. Thank you so much Franz for all your efforts. In addition, thank you so much yoga for creating this miracle.
