I am still recovery from a bad injury, partially depressed and with a lot of frustration – I am paying for neglected towards myself and my health, skipping workouts and stretching.

Almost every day I am seeing and I work with people who struggle to get back their health. Cardio-respiratory problems, high blood pressure, cholesterol, metabolic syndrome or even diabetes, adrenal fatigue syndrome, musculo-articular problems and so on.
