This is Reginald Wilson. Reggie started practicing with us in August of 2014. In his introductory month, he practiced 22 times. Since then, he practiced, on average, about three times a week.
This Superbowl Sunday, February 1, Reggie felt a tightening of his chest. His wife insisted he go to the hospital and after several tests, the doctors determined that Reggie had 100% blockage in one of his arteries and he needed a triple bypass.
After the surgery, the doctor asked him what he had been doing and Reggie told him, “Sterling Hot Yoga.”
The doctor said that there’s a good chance the yoga saved his life! His heart had actually developed alternate routes around the blockage and the strength of his systems got him through the surgery with relative ease!
Reggie returned to his practice this week and he is taking it slow and following our one rule. We are thrilled that he is Sterling!
