New Series Client


At age 39 I underwent my first total knee replacement. My second one followed at 41. Both brought me to my edge - the first, to a real low, the second, rising in redemption and facing the life-changing situation with determination and focus. Now, at 45, everyday requires me to be realistic about my new range of motion limitations and how my new prothesis' are adapting to my body and life as a movement teacher. I believe yoga is an incredible practice to help anyone prepare for, endure, recover and maintain a joint replacement. As your yoga teacher, I help impart my real-life experience of having lived through the surgeries, grueling physical rehabilitations and adaptation periods while both you and your body get used to living with a new prosthetic joint. I can teach you to make peace with your changed range of motion, coach you to maintain it and not lose it, and push you to create more desirable physical and mental conditions for adjusting to the stages you'll progress though along your journey. One of the bravest things you'll do is to decide to take control of your limits and not be defined by them!
