I lived with chronic pain. My right hip was frozen and it hurt all day long. I have a sway back and my low back would lock up at times. My shoulders rolled forward, my belly protruded and my overall posture was terrible.
What Lynn Tried
I tried many different practices including yoga in the past. Also, I go for deep massage, which does help, but I was still in pain.
Step by step, over time with the practice of Custom Calm yoga, my hip began to open up and as a result, others areas of my body opened and straightened up as well.
The yoga quieted my mind and relaxed my body. I think the support has been the key to my body and my mind finally relaxing and accepting joy and ease.
The Yoga Therapy totally melted the tension in my hip muscles so much so that whenever we began a session, the muscle remembered the treatment and would soften to Ellen's touch.
Over time, my yoga practice has become a central part of my life, opening me up to real happiness and contentment. The daily practice has slowed and relaxed my mind and my body resulting in a “being comfortable in my own skin” feeling that stays with me all day. I have come to know a depth to my Self that I did not know existed and was afraid to experience.
My posture has changed, the chronic pains have subsided, I breathe more fully, my state of mind is calm, and life is full of joy. The yoga and the yoga therapy have brought me internal peace in an ever-changing, fragile world. And the deeper I go, the better it gets.
