#013: Yoga for Healing and Restoration



Yet, often we think when we have an injury or our bodies do not look like the cover on a magazine that it’s not for us.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told that someone is afraid to try yoga because they’re not very flexible or strong.

But we’re here to tell you it is for you! And it’s not just lip service.

There are so many styles of yoga out there and we guarantee you can find something that works for your body and makes you feel whole like this practice is intended to do.

In a world when we’re constantly reminded of what we lack, yoga is about reminding you that you can do something right. Just be you.

Today’s guest, Angelique Codarmaz Rainey, shares her journey to discovering and practicing yoga to heal her low back and how adapting your practice actually makes you stronger.

Tune in for some laughter, too…because when Angelique and I get together, it’s bound to be fun!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Angelique's journey to discovering and practicing yoga to heal her low back...and her girl crush on Lilias Folan...

  • The realization that yoga teacher training would help her deepen her knowledge and expertise

  • How your body changes every time you practice and the objective perspective of a well-trained teacher can help you deepen your relationship with your body

  • How many ways are available to adapt your yoga practice so that the poses can fit your body rather than forcing yourself in a some ideal

  • About the practice of restorative yoga and the importance of the breath and slowing down
