Emily: Blog 4

My scoliosis was diagnosed at age 13. Doctors visits only seemed to worsen my case. It was not until I started practicing regular yoga that I started finding relief. For years I looked for yogis who like me had physical limitations. While completing my YTT I learn’t that everyone has physical limitations. Many are simply not aware of it. Body awareness is not something the average person has. I was shocked when we all were analysed, and one after another, we had scoliosis or kyphosis or lordosis. Some were far worse then others. But we all have our weaknesses and our strengths. Wether a structural or muscular weakness we all have, even advanced yogis, something which can be worked on. After all, the practice of yoga is about continual improvement.
