My Journey into Yoga

My yoga journey began when I was four years old after I was assigned to cardiologist, Dr. Raja Singham. He was born in Sri Lanka, a region with a strong yogic tradition. And as he grew, he pursued medicine. But shortly after he began to practice, civil war broke out in his country, so he immigrated to the US. Having been diagnosed with a serious case of proximal atrial tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), I’d been placed in his care. Dr. Raja used his skills as a medical practitioner, as well as his understanding of yoga, to save my life.
