5 Yogis Share How Yoga Transformed Their Lives for Good

We asked readers to share stories of how yoga has impacted their lives. The response was overwhelming, to say the least. From helping to ease depression and suicidal thoughts to ameliorating physical pain, yoga has, without a doubt, the power to change lives. Here, five standout stories of recovery and renewal.

We want to hear how yoga has saved and transformed your life, too. Share your own story on Instagram by tagging @yogajournal, including the #yogasavedmeyj, and tagging three other yogis to participate. 5 yogis will be selected from those entries to win a free Yoga Journal online course of their choice.
