An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Welcome Summer 2002!

Dear Students and Yoga Lovers,
I know it's a long time since I sent out a newsletter, the reason being is that there is a lot going on professionally and personally. I hope that you visit my website from time to time,, as it is updated regularly, and you can check on class schedules and other offerings.

Many of you know that I attended a Cardiac Yoga course offered by the Integral Yoga organization at their headquarters in Yogaville (Buckingham), Virginia, and I am pleased to say that I am now qualified to teach Yoga to heart patients and their spouses in hospital or private settings. If you know of anyone suffering with congestive heart failure, angina, recovering from by-pass surgery, inform them they can greatly benefit by including Yoga in their recovery process. Cardiac Yoga includes yogic breathing, simple, modified yoga exercises and postures, stress management, deep relaxation, imagery and meditation, as well as peer support circles. Pre-requisite for course participation is doctor's permission.

I promised you testimonials on Neti use, and here they are:

Plagued by chronic nasal drip, spending much of my life surrounded by Kleenex boxes, about two years ago I searched the Internet and found Grace Welch's site advertising Neti pots. I ordered one and have been using it faithfully ever since. In fact, I was so impressed I ordered two for friends with allergies. Together with giving up dairy products and doing Neti daily has been like a mini-miracle. Now, at the first sign of a cold or sore throat I Neti 3/4 times a day to keep my nasal passages open and clear. I can't imagine being without it, and it's so simple to use!

Neti is a wonderful nasal lavage; daily use helps cleanse my sinus passages in a soothing, natural way. I highly recommend this ancient practice, especially since it improved my allergies. My nose feels more "open." Neti is cheap, convenient and, with a little practice, easy to use.

N.B., Smithtown, New York

I've had major sinus problems and allergies since breaking my nose at 17, which left me with a deviated septum (corrected surgically in '93). I have been using the Neti pot since '94. When I use it faithfully, daily, I rarely suffer sinisitus; if I wake up with a "full head," one Neti treatment and my head is clear. I highly recommend Neti for anyone who has nasal, sinus or breathing problems: "keep your nose clean."

K.B., Ronkonkoma, New York

After consistently practicing Neti each day, I threw away my over-the-counter nasal decongestant. I rarely need to take sinus pain medication any longer, thanks to Grace and Neti!
