I didn’t have time or inclination to go to a class at a yoga studio.Private yoga is rewarding and special in many ways.
For years, I have watched others participate in yoga classes and decided that it was not for me.I feel wonderful now, and I’m able to enjoy my sons as they are growing up, whether it involves running, jumping, climbing, swimming & walking long distances. After years of back problems that forced me into physical therapy and using medication to take off the edge, I wanted a remedy that wasn’t dependent on prescriptions or medical appointments.I thought yoga would be a natural way to heal and develop a manageable approach to lifelong exercise, but I couldn’t get the direct and consistent instruction I felt I needed in classes to progress.The real success came, though, when my youngest son and I were leaving home one day: I ran into the house to get something I’d forgotten, and when I came back, he yelled “Mom, you ran!”, something he’d never seen me do because of the pain. ” Dayna, 39 Mom & Business Owner Upper Marlboro, MD “The first thing I learned about private yoga with Kelly is that one is NEVER too old or too physically-challenged to benefit from this wonderful practice!That made me realize that I needed to do something about the way I was feeling.
My medications weren’t relieving the pain as effectively, and my doctors only suggested surgery… I started working with Higher Ground soon thereafter.
I taught aerobics for 10 years while in college and graduate school and I had a complete misperception of yoga and its benefits.
Through training with Kelly, I have discovered that I could get a true workout where my body would shake and beads of sweat would magically appear while ending the session feeling like I had just had a massage.
Her sessions were therapeutic and almost indescribable; each one was tailored to how I was feeling that day and what my goals were.
They focused on strength, flexibility and mental clarity, and pushed me to limits I hadn’t reached before in yoga.
I was making at least 4 doctors’ visits a month to get shots and prescriptions for everyday pain management.
