Why yoga?

I was diagnosed at 12 years old with severe scoliosis. My mom (thanks mom!) took me to my first pilates and yoga classes to help strengthen my spine and reduce pain. Even while wearing a back brace and after having nine vertebrae fused with metal rods and screws, the practice of yoga has helped me love my body and mind, as well as treat them with respect and compassion.
