For way too many years, I was hurting way too much! Arthritis, my constant unwelcome friend, was really robbing me of a fun filled, pain free life. I had a total hip replacement twenty years ago, and then a revision (also big surgery) ten years later. That was fine, but the rest of me still hurt! My precious daughter-in-law came to me right before my eightieth birthday with this statement. " I am just so sad to watch you in pain with each step, and with every sit down and rise up from a chair. I have for you two private lessons with Sterling. Take these and just see if maybe yoga can help." That was the beginning of my new, pain free, happy, productive life!
It is now two years later. Yep! I'm approaching eighty-two, and I truly feel better today than I have for twenty-something years! I have been doing the "magic stretches", (my words), religiously, and I cannot tell you how wonderful this "new me" feels! I admit that the private lessons are often painful, but I have never, from privates or regular classes, felt any pain after the lesson! I sometimes feel tired, but no pain!
I am always amazed at how knowledgeable Sterling is! She constantly educates herself with classes and instructors that allow her to help her public. She always can explain where a specific pain or concern comes from. I highly recommend this type of yoga for anyone! You do have to make it a commitment and make it a high priority in your life, but I am an endorsement to the real and wonderful advantage of feeling good, strong, and pain free! Try it, you'll like it!
