Did You Know?
There is never one answer for helping someone heal or overcome pain. There are simply patterns to see and yoga techniques to accurately apply.
I came home after taking a number of days to reflect both on my own and with family, and think I have come up with a succinct explanation about how I feel and felt during and after the Therapeutic Yoga Intensive. If I were to sum it up – I’d have to say, “I’m no longer an imposter”. Truly I am beginning to feel what it means to be ME from the inside out. How wonderful to be connected to every part of my body (from the centre of my belly to the tips of my toes to the top of my head).
It’s been great to bring what I’ve learnt to my Mom and sister. We’ve all been harbouring internal and external ‘baggage’ so when I heard their comments “I really feel my belly talking to me – it feels different”, only a short time after doing both the initial observational exercises and the pelvic floor breathing, I was assured of my path.
THANK YOU for teaching me to look beyond the books and seek the knowledge that is deep within my body. I appreciated that you spent lots of time to show us what to do, how to do it and told us why we might choose one exercise and not another, but most importantly for me I appreciated that you left the discovering of what to feel or not up to us. I’ve taken lots of courses and read lots of books and watched lots of DVD’s but never before have I felt I’ve learned so much that is right now applicable and beneficial to so many. Although I took notes and re-wrote them after the training, I feel I have a sense of what to do – what a great feeling! Thanks so much.
My first private therapeutic yoga session is tomorrow – a politician with a problem back. I also taught a couple of students yesterday in the park and we ‘stepped back’ and ‘slowed things down’ … did the pelvic floor exercise and rolled mat at the spine and at C7. Warrior I & III – quite different but e-a-s-i-e-r! They liked it!!
Once again … you are the BEST!
