“In my classes we don’t dwell on what was but on what can be. Our bodies are incredibly resilient and can adapt to almost anything. I ask my students to breathe and move gently through the discomfort, the resistance, the numbness. We will never know what is on the other side unless we use our sensations as guides rather than barriers. By retrieving range of motion in creative ways, we can reach a place called “the best shape of our lives!”
