Here’s the scoop…
In 2017, I was admitted to the hospital for what they thought was a stroke. After two months of testing and an exploratory brain surgery, I was diagnosed with Tumefactive MS – a rare, sudden-onset form of Multiple Sclerosis that left me struggling to walk, talk, and swallow.
I was lucky.
Prior to this happening, I was a yoga teacher with deep training in asana, pranayama, and meditation. I’ve used these practices every day since I was released from the hospital to manage my symptoms. These practices have aided in neuroplasticity and have brought about real healing.
I love sharing these practices to help others with MS to heal their own mind and body through movement.
A few fun facts about me:
