As a physical therapist, and a student of Anusara yoga, I firmly believe in the healing powers inside each one of us. I love guiding patients and students on the path of healing. Helping to develop a balanced program of postures, a balanced body, empowers us all, and promotes well being.
It is my wish, that those who cannot attend formal physical therapy, benefit from yoga as a means to maintaining a healthy body. As I began teaching yoga as a part of my patients' therapy, I was often asked on a patients' last visit, "What should I do now?" I would recommend continuing with the program that we developed, or a yoga class. But often my patients struggled in public classes. Newer students, or those who are recovering from surgery or injury can benefit from a more intimate class, or a one on one private session. The more I teach yoga, the more I learn. I've learned that yoga is a powerful tool, that facilitates healing, balance, and allows me to stay in contact with clients for a longer time that a typical patient is allowed in formal physical therapy. It can also be a wonderful adjunct while undergoing formal physical therapy.
You are as old as your spine flexible.
The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in. ~B.K.S. Iyengar
Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense. ~Henry Miller
