  1. I am only 26 and have been having awful neck and back pain. I used to be very altethic but have strayed away as I’ve gotten older. I have gone to the physical therapist and tried several things. A month into this video and pain is gone. I do it every single day and love it! I never thought I’d like yoga but it has been great. Can’t wait to get better and try other videos! Thanks Tara!

  2. To find a system that works best for you, ask yourself what you enjoy most. If you love food, then maybe go on a diet does not work for you and instead prefer to lose weight by exercising and avoid foods that can be a reason for you to gain weight
