Yoga makes the unconscious conscious and the unknown known, and it saved Karina’s life. Sitting on her meditation seat and listening deep within, she sensed a problem with her tonsils and knew they had to come out, even though her doctor was unconcerned. After she had her tonsils removed, they were found to be cancerous. When you sit on your meditation seat or yoga mat, take time to listen within, Karina advises. Yoga isn’t just about effort and doing.
