I have been practicing Yoga for over 25 years. The physical, emotional, and mental benefits have contributed to my healthy and energetic body, mind, and spirit.
Eleven months ago, I broke my right tibia. Today, my “Healing Broken Leg” is completely healed. However, the soft tissue around my knee is still healing. I attended superb physical therapy and myofacial release sessions at Red Rock Therapy & Wellness for several months. However, when I was finally able to attend Yoga classes my Blue Brain and Heart felt like myself again! I was most grateful that I could drive myself to class, follow along and move into the poses, and get up and down from my yoga mat easily, and increase my breath work that is calming and beneficial! I attend 4 to 5 classes a week (restorative, chair, joints and glands, and Kundalini). I also practice at home on the weekends and when I travel (I take my yoga mat with me or I do chair yoga in the hotel room.) I am seeing a tremendous improvement in my mobility and strength in my leg and knee.
