stress is a natural way to deal with life, however, when we get overloaded with stress, we are unable
to recycle the chemicals component and end up with inflammation. The more stress, them more
inflammation, which will shift our genetic expressions and contaminate our cellular communication.
Vicious cycle indeed. Is it any wonder YOGA is a booming industry world wide??

Pl note that YOGA is not an industry but a faith and a way of life. If some one wants to fool
people by use of name"YOGA'. and make money for oneself, yoga can not be blamed. It is
those who make it an industry and make money are doing a dis service to humanity.
