BEFRIEND YOUR BODY AGAIN

Therapeutic yoga is the application of yoga postures to the treatment of health conditions and involves instruction in yogic practices and teachings to prevent reduce or alleviate pain, suffering or limitations.

I was very fortunate. I was already doing yoga when I got sick.
I do not believe I would have thought I was capable of doing yoga when I first got sick - I was too disabled.
But at the time, a very skilled teacher gave me relief to my symptoms when nothing
the doctors were doing were working for me.
During that first very disorienting and scary year, my yoga practice empowered me to cope with the myriad of symptoms that kept popping up to assault me.

Before I got sick my practice was all about the strength, and the flexibility, and the posing;
after, my practice exploded like confetti.
There were all these other pieces in there that I had no idea even existed, and those elements of yoga were
so helpful and pivotal in helping me to live in a body that was starting to feel like an enemy.

I teach yoga because yoga saved my life, a sentiment that is so common it’s become clichéd. I know. I know. But it’s also true for so many people! While living with a mercurial, mysterious and misunderstood illness, yoga gave me the tools to cope with and to counteract my symptoms.

One translation of a yoga teacher is a darkness dispeller. I love that because yoga dissipated so much darkness for me, and now I’m keen to dispel darkness for others. I brings a sensitivity to my teaching and great empathy as well as broad and extensive knowledge from over 25 years of practicing yoga.
