My interest in rehabilitation stems from my own experiences in illness, injury and recovery.
Our bodies are adaptable and resilient when we build a relationship based on awareness and trust; after all, when we know where we are, we are more resourced to move in any given direction. Healing is a qualitative dialogue with the whole system led by a felt sense rather than a prescribed set of technical exercises by someone who does not know you are well as you know yourself. It is this intrinsic awareness that creates the right environment for finding balance, flexibility and strength.
I have rehabilitated myself through a liver transplant, a knee break, and spinal surgery, not to mention four decades of managing an auto-immune disease and mothering an autistic child. Using my twenty years of experience practicing yoga, as a runner, swimmer, skier and hiker, I have a special interest in helping others return to yoga in a safe and cumulative way.
Whether you are living with chronic pain, have been diagnosed with, or recovered from a potentially life-threatening illness, are recovering from an injury or operation, or simply returning yoga after a long absence, rehabilitative yoga is for you. I incorporate aspects of yoga asana and philosophy together with embodied movement and fascial fitness to encourage stamina and flexibility, flexion and extension.
