PBS had a new website built for Rob Bispo created by Lynda Brown of Wow-Webs January 2013

I lost 97% of my skin July 25, 2003. When I woke up after more than 2 months in a coma  I was pissed off to say the least. Why did I survive? I'm going to cut through all the crap. Before my accident, my mother and my daughter taught me the healing arts yoga; I didn't know much about yoga, I just knew it worked and it made me feel better. I spent the next 7 years after my accident studying yoga and all of the healing arts. Although I practice them all from time to time, yoga is my passion.

And after you heal yourself you want to help others. As it is with a lot of yoga teachers, most of us don't make a lot of money but we love our work. Things were becoming stagnant in my yoga career; then I hooked up with Portland Burn Survivors, Inc (PBS) and they sponsored me a web-page, Yoga takes care of that void in my soul and makes me feel whole. I have so many friends now I am blessed. ~Rob Bispo
