Ourmala's helped over 200 women. The women report they feel more confident, physical and mental pain reduces, they can sleep better… Here are what a few have said: "After yoga, my mind, my body feel better... I feel as free as a bird, my pain goes..." "In yoga I found love, and happiness... Yoga is fantastic, it's light in the dark life, it's friendly... The difference is peace inside." "Yoga helps me fight the world, in a good way"
