an alignment intervention, a rockin’ class, a deep workshop, a transformative retreat,
a life-changing teacher training, a spirit of fluidity, a place to learn to be pain free
Here is a conversation Lauren recently had with a new client:
Client: My back hurts me all of the time. I recently got shots in my back to fix it.
Lauren: Shots are a temporary fix for back pain. You need to deal with what is causing the pain to begin with.
Client: Like what?
Lauren: Your everyday alignment, your alignment when you exercise, how much you sit, how you use your body for functional activities.
Client: Well I do loads of yoga and run all of the time so I am in great shape and have good posture.
Lauren: If you were in great shape and had good alignment, you would not be in pain all of the time AND I would be curious to see how you are doing your yoga and running.
Client: That is really surprising. I thought that by doing yoga, I would be fine.
Here are a few more myths:
fiction: exercise guarantees proper alignment and a strong body
fact: exercise done wrong and out of alignment guarantees injury. proper alignment guarantees more chances for injury-free exercise
fiction: bone density loss is an unavoidable symptom of aging and is not reversible
fact: bone density has a lot to do with how you are using (or not using) your body. correct postural alignment creates strong bones and can reverse osteopenia and osteoporosis
fiction: post-baby back pain is normal
fact: carrying babies is natural and our bodies are designed to handle the changes and stresses. imbalanced joints are the originof a lot of pain in our body.
