    I have severe neck stenosis (3mm), along with herniated disks at every level. Surgery became imperative, but it is so vitally important that I engage in yoga consistenly. I have practiced yoga for over 20 yrs. and cannot recommmend it highly enough. It improves my flexibility and range of motion, and I definitely will have less pain on the days I do my yoga. The inner wisdom of our bodies will guide us to be gentle and will let us know if we try to overdo it. We will finish serene and relaxed, and will be very glad we did it!
