I taught aerobics for 10 years while in college and graduate school and I had a complete misperception of yoga and its benefits.
It may be a little biased to say this, but I’ve got the most amazing clients on the planet.Higher Ground’s client base of super-busy women (and a couple of lucky guys) all have something crucial in common: in a way it was not before.I was making at least 4 doctors’ visits a month to get shots and prescriptions for everyday pain management.It not only affected my work, but also kept me from doing fun things with my kids.Then, the reasons for my discomfort became much more acute.
Several years ago, I developed a health condition that affects the way I look and makes it very difficult for me to exercise in front of other people.
The individualized attention allows me to understand the look and feel of the poses and to practice on my own.
The follow-up and email suggestions have helped me incorporate yoga in my daily life and travel. I have always loved yoga but just could not work most studio classes into my schedule.
As a result, I stopped going to the gym, stopped exercising outside, and felt that I was relegated to an exercise regime revolving around the treadmill in my basement — not my idea of fun.
Kelly has had such a meaningful personal impact, that I’ve even signed up for Higher Ground’s custom yoga retreat offering — asking Kelly to offer classes on a vacation I’m taking with my girlfriends to the Mayan Riviera — so that she can share her sense of serenity, personalized classes and signature ‘moves a woman can use’ with my friends.
That made me realize that I needed to do something about the way I was feeling.
