Medical Therapeutic Yoga

 

TESTIMONIAL

"Using medical therapeutic yoga, Raquel was able to quickly single in on my unique muscle imbalances and work with me to find exercises and poses that helped to relieve my pain and to strengthen my overall stability. Now I can take care of my everyday tasks without fatigue, get back in shape after having 3 kids, and enjoy working out again. Her patience in working with me to activate muscles that I have a hard time identifying and using is unmatched. Where other practitioners would just tell me to keep practicing when I couldn't do their exercises quite right, Raquel takes the time to help me identify which muscles I am using and also learn how to properly use those muscles in my home workouts and everyday tasks. She never gives up on trying to find the right pose or wording to help me discover and use the right muscles. She is exceptionally good at modifying exercises just for me so that I can make progress and build up to where I need to be to reach my goals."    - Toria Trendler
