Seizures

Hello,

Since October I have had two seizures with no known cause.

Introduced to yoga eleven years ago, my practice began in earnest three years ago and I teach very small classes. After experiencing the second seizure, I stopped my classes and doing asana--sticking mainly with meditation. However, my body is yearning for asana.

Any suggestions about what would be appropriate/inappropriate would be appreciated!

I feel for your situation. I have a brother who began having seizures 16-17 years ago and a cause has never been determined. He's now on medication for what I assume will be the rest of his life. Its a very frustrating, helpless feeling to go through them at any time.

Did either of yours occur while doing Yoga?

Thank you for your kind words.

The seizures have occurred only in the middle of the night--thankfully not during the waking hours so my children have been spared seeing me look "pretty scary" (my husband would rather never see me look that way again!).

As well as asana suggestions, I am open to mantra suggestions.
