For decades, she suffered from hunchback posture – the result of a herniated disc, scoliosis, and osteoporosis.
Though she had “tried everything: acupuncture, a physical therapist and seeing a chiropractor,” to alleviate the pain, little seemed to help her long-term. Fortunately, that all changed when her daughter introduced her to Rachel Jesian, a certified yoga instructor. They started slow and introduced restorative yoga poses and stretches into their one-on-one classes. Incredibly, after just one month, Pesce was able to walk again.
“After two months, another big milestone was that [Pesce] knew what poses to do whenever the usual pains would come up for her. For example, if she was having hip pain, she’d sit on a chair and do an ankle-to-knee pose.”
Her understanding of spinal alignment and back injuries has helped Pesce heal her own body. Anna has made incredible progress in healing from scoliosis.
“I feel wonderful now because I can drive by myself and do the things I wasn’t able to do before,” Pesce says. “I would recommend this to other people.”
The best part is that everyone can do it, and it’s relatively simple and affordable to get started. Seek out a class near you , or watch classes on youtube.
