Having lived with Multiple Sclerosis for over 11 years, Maria Hawkes experimented with various treatments from reflexology to holistic therapy and from support groups to counselling before discovering the art of Hatha Yoga and the positive effects it had in helping her to deal with the ongoing symptoms of MS.
Since that discovery she has become a yoga teacher and decided to share her experiences and their positive effects on her life when dealing with MS.
Maria explains how she tried to discover the causes which led to her being diagnosed with MS and takes you on her journey from childhood to the present day and the path that eventually led her to yoga. In addition, Maria looks at other treatments in conjunction with yoga which have helped her.
She says; Determination to keep MS under control is what motivates me daily.
