I live in New Orleans, La. also. I trained at Wild Lotus studio but they are stil closed bc of the pandemic. I've been in chronic pain with my lumbar spine for about 20 years. When I started taking yoga classes in 2016, I felt some relief and I also fell in LOVE with yoga. But, my back started to deteriorate further in 2019, making yoga incredibly painful. I had to completely stop. That year, I had major spinal surgery and it took about a year, with physical therapy, to recover. I am so happy that I can practice yoga again. I found Dianne on Yoga International one day, by chance, and I was spellbound. I'm very happy to now be a member of yogaforeveryone. I trust Dianne and know that she will give me options so that I no longer practice yoga in pain.
