Leilani McGonagle and I have been working together for three years now. This year, we decided to run a Yogi Bear Yoga Retreat for Scoliosis to share everything we’ve learned about the mysterious and complicated condition of scoliosis, which we both have.
In March, Leilani helped me lead a workshop during the Anatomy of Self yoga teacher training, sharing the very specific sequences we have created and borrowed from other systems (including Scroth, which Leilani learned about in California). You can check out some of the sequences from that workshop in the youtube video below:
And MOST IMPORTANTLY: I am beyond happy to share that Leilani won 2nd place in the #VISSLAISAWorldJuniors championships in Ecuador just this past Sunday. This girl is a champion. Her determination, discipline, and constant hard work in managing the challenges of scoliosis inspire me daily and keep me on the quest to find the absolute best solutions for a complicated and mysterious condition.
I hope some of you will be able to join us this December in Pavones.
