It seems that you attempt yoga on your own steam without a teacher trying things out etc. I am going to be blunt and straightforward here please forgive me, but with that amount of abuse and the intensity of the abuse you have inflicted on your body, I would strongly recommend that you PLEASE find a teacher to help you. You need special care and someone who can help you. The wrong choice of yoga of practices and combined with an unprepared body may just aggrevate your panic disorder and create more anxiety in you.

Good luck and I pray that you will please go and seek the assistance of a techer.

Might I suggest a dvd by Mark Whitwell called:[b]Real Yoga for Real People (200

After attending an all day workshop with him last week, I can honestly recommend his dvd to help build a foundation (especially to those who don't have a teacher available to them) for your practice. He truly speaks from the heart with "no strings attached".

Best of luck to you.
