JOURNEY

"When I started Yoga Therapy teacher training in 2018, I was dealing with chronic back, hip, and nerve pain. I had been dealing with it on and off for years and was to the point where I was not sure I could continue teaching yoga. Through working with my yoga therapist, Amanda Green, and doing my own practice, I have found healing and am happily out of the pain fog.

 

It is possible you have heard the quote: “Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them".  In the case of my pain, I needed a reliable outside reference, who knew me well, to give me a practice to get out of the physical and mental patterns that were causing me suffering. All of this was done simply through my daily practice, self-study, relinquishing and relationship."
