Relax + Restore – December
December 15, 2023
I’ve been looking for scoliosis treatment since I was diagnosed with it; about 5 or 6 years ago. After seeing doctors who fitted me with uncomfortable braces that produced meager results, I was blessed to find treatment in the yoga practice under Cristina Roy’s helpful direction. With her great expertise in yoga instruction for scoliosis, Cristina informatively explained to me the atypical tendencies of my spine and taught me poses to contradict those twists, which I practice at home every day. She showed me how to be aware of my posture and proper habits to assume for improvement. Thanks to her guidance, I now have a deeper understanding of my body and how to care for myself, and I feel fantastic!
Cristina’s patient and detailed teaching style created a space for yoga that fit my body’s needs. [Her] class is a 10/10 for those with scoliosis.
[Cristina’s] extensive knowledge of restorative yoga and the utilization of multiple props coupled with her genuine caring and love for yoga, directly aligns with the benefits of cultivating an atmosphere that nurtures and strengthens you physically, mentally and spiritually. Within the past 6 months I have experienced significant improvements in flexibility and the range of motion in each of my knees. In addition, I have lowered my blood pressure and I am no longer attempting to manage pain from my IT Bands.
Taking [Cristina’s] classes, my physical condition has greatly improved, especially my posture. I don’t think I can ask for much better than that.
