|Yoga for Scoliosis
Gill was diagnosed with an 'S' shaped structural scoliosis
at the age of 14 , which she found emotionally very difficult
to deal with. It was not until in her 20's that she found
yoga which instantly gave her a huge release of physical and
emotional tension. A car accident in 2008 left her with a
whiplash injury to her thoracic spine. She had tried all types
of Yoga over the years with many teachers , but it was not
until during her training with Elise Browning Miller that
there was a huge release in the stuck muscles in her middle
back. The pain which she had due to the injury went and she
was able to straighten up completely. There was a feeling of
lightness and a great deal more symmetry and alignment to how
her back looked and felt. She is extremely grateful for the
huge change that this release in her mid back has brought to
her life and for Elise's method of teaching. She continues to
practice Yoga for Scoliosis daily.
She has studied Yoga all over the world and taught
students of all ages and ability from 4 weeks to 80 years old.
She is passionate about Yoga as a way of life, as she sees it
as a way of bringing joy back to our daily existence, through
the balance and freedom that it brings to body , mind and soul.
Her approach to teaching is fun, light-hearted and
compassionate. Gill's teaching experience enables her to deeply
tune into how to facilitate the best possible way to help
students in a safe, supportive environment, so that they can
explore Yoga as a path to heal and maintain a healthy back.
