According to the American Academy of Pain Management, “an estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. The most common types of pain include arthritis, lower back, bone/joint pain, muscle pain and fibromyalgia.”
What if your doctor prescribed yoga to help these conditions in the place of pills? Would you think it an odd tool for healing? Would you think you weren’t flexible enough? Would you think it would cost too much to find a good teacher and class? According to Hillary Rubin, all of these questions stem from myths about yoga.
“I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis,” says Hillary, “and by using yoga as one of my healing tools, I’m pain and medication free today.”
For Hillary, yoga is more than exercise; it’s a tool for healing. You can start where you are right now and begin to lessen stress and physical aches and pains. Through Hillary’s heart-centered guidance, participants will learn how to create a strong yoga foundation to begin and sustain the healing process. In Yoga Foundations, Hillary provides a complete beginner’s practice to do at home, at the office, or even while waiting at the airport. You will learn how to do each pose properly and safely, and learn how to engage your heart and spirit in your own healing process.
