In April 2015, I wrote some of my life story and the positive role the practice of Yoga has made to my state of well-being.
Now, I have an update.
On October 6, I had a left hip revision , which resulted in a new ball and socket. This was the fourth surgery on this hip and I was told it should last until "they throw dirt on my face".
After three years of Yoga, 3 to 4 times per week with the very best Yoga instructor, Tracy Von Kaenel and her Yoga community, I knew that I was stronger and more flexible going into the surgery than I had ever been. However, it wasn't until after the surgery, when I first stood up and started doing therapy that I knew for a fact that this was going to be the best outcome I have had post any previous surgery. Decreased pain and a rapid return to functionality where proof that Yoga really does make a difference.
I am deeply grateful to Tracy and to my Yoga family for the love and support you gave me and continue to give me as I slowly progress on toward a full Yoga practice once again.
Thank you Thank you
