Welcome to the Here Now Body blog.
The Here Now Body blog is a love-based, science-based blog born of the idea that if you can mindfully meet your body in each present moment, you can find a pathway towards living more freely and in less pain.
Here you will find posts on yoga teaching, chronic pain, pelvic health, women’s health, alignment, physical therapy, chronic illness, ergonomics, mindfulness, and everything in between! This blog encompasses my journey through chronic illness, physical therapy school, and the evolution of my yoga teaching. One day things may be organized. For now please feel free to scroll through what interests you!
