Personal Practice of Yoga – It’s all good!

Personal Practice of Yoga — It’s all good

So my yoga practice has changed a bit, these past 4 years.

#beginnersyoga #easebackpain

#easebackpain with #beginnersyoga

I was vigorously practicing the 12 yoga poses for easing osteopenia/osteoporosis, but still experiencing back pain.

Upon the advise of my MD Anderson Women’s Care doctor, she suggested that I go back to my primary physician and get xrays done to start to figure out what is going on with my back pain.

Well, turns out I have scoliosis.  Got me thinking, what was my xrays back in 2010 telling me from my chiro visits.  Got another baseline done, and yup, my curves have increased.  No wonder I have pain.

Back to yoga.  Apparently practicing the same of both sides is aggravating my challenged side.

So investigating into this, books, internet, etc.  Found YogaBerry in the UK, and took her yoga teacher training for scoliosis, and recently did a group webinar with 4 other people to practice yoga with regards to our specific curves.

Let me tell you,

I’m in less pain.  Also work with at PT to strengthen my multifidus deeeeeep back muscle and my transverse abdominus. Yes, a lot of what I’m doing is yoga, but we are targeting to my needs of my back.

WOW!  Its working!

Yoga for easing back pain.  I’m an example!

See you in Beginners Yoga folks!

Remember, you don’t have to be flexible, or in shape to do yoga. If you can breathe you can do some form of yoga. The more out of shape that you are, the more you’ll see immediate results in a regular practice.  AGAIN, you don’t need any previous experience to make dramatic changes in your life in a very short time. It doesn’t matter what shape you’re in right now, yoga is suitable for every “BODY!”  Whether in small group class or one on one individual lessons.  Give me a call to get you started on your path of health and vitality!
