I’ve had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 27 years and am always searching for ways to alleviate/lesson the pain and to be more flexible. My areas of pain or tension are usually my lower back, my neck and my feet and also where I usually carry more stress. In working with Rachel and Therapeutic Yoga, I have been amazed at how such subtle, gentle movements can help me feel better; how they are adjusting the baseline from which I operate. It’s all about the “base” and re-training my brain to focus on one specific area and by doing that, I love how such a small movement can create such a big effect! Rachel is an amazing, intuitive teacher. Her knowledge, encouragement and teaching style is a beautiful channel for improvement and comfort! My lower back is improved from when I started and I’m really liking that a “little” goes a “long way”!
