Not long after the turn of the Millennium I received a tentative diagnosis of hereditary scoliosis. I responded by saying that I’d created it, so it was up to me to sort it out.

That led me to try numerous different modalities, including yoga and energy work, one of the most remarkable being my first session of cranio-sacral therapy. I felt my rehabilitation had begun, but there was still something missing.

I discovered another part of what that something was when I became certified as a Hatha Yoga teacher some years later. After several months the physiological and anatomical processes involved started to take on new meaning. As I developed my own practice, I discovered how and why certain poses were helping transform my posture.

Perhaps the most important lesson I learned was the necessity of having a good foundation, which is where I like to focus my classes, particularly with beginners.
