As a physical therapist integrating yoga into my work with clients to help them get out of pain and move more efficiently, I have frequently been asked my opinion on the use of foam rolling and the benefit of static stretching. We are now learning more about how to use these tools to improve our efficiency of movement.

As an athlete growing up, I never saw yoga as a real workout. It was something to do with friends every once in awhile and was supposed to help keep “centered” or “balanced,” and all of that other “yoga speak.” I never understood my friends who would pay to go several times a week just to relax. But I kept going, committing to once a week community class with a good friend, more as a social event than...

True confession time: I am a RED hot mess. Ok I have to laugh at myself now because really my life is incredible and with the same breath it is a total and complete mess. It is messy with all that goes into having a marriage of over seven years, a child beginning kindergarten, a mother in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, a job managing people, another job helping people to heal and well you get the point. Life is funny with its paradox of...

After my grandma’s passing, my memento request was for her 1980’s VHS tapes of Milwaukee PBS’ Hatha Yoga with Kathleen Hitchcock. Viewing the scratchy recordings, I could just make out her Danskin leotard and legwarmers, the same outfit that I wore when accompanying Grandma to her friend’s house for a group class.
