  • If I won the lottery I would...
    I would travel the world doing yoga and helping people, completing teacher trainings, workshops, and anything I could find along the way! I would spend my days giving, seeing other people happier when their misfortunes become more fortunate! All the while I would be in search for the perfect place to put my recycled home, with enough room for my own garden, lots of flowers, outdoor yoga (so I could host totally affordable retreats!) and enough room for a renewable energy source like a windmill! <3

  1. I have seen a medical professional, but not who practices yoga. I have been to a chiropractor and I'm waiting to get into a physiotherapist! I practice at home a lot, and I often attend hot yoga classes. I've spoken with all the yoga teachers I know, getting advice here and there - and even one who had sacroiliitis too (she told me to do a lot of glute strengthening)! I'm currently enrolled in a yoga teacher training for Soma & Hatha yoga, the soma training has been helping me recover lost feelings in some muscles! It's still almost impossible to be comfortable in most sitting postures even when modified.
  2. Hello! My name is Allanah and I'm 22. I've been dealing with Sacroiliitis which is the inflammation of your sacroiliac joint, since October 2015. It prevents me from doing the simplest of things (like sitting with straight legs and doing a forward fold, even on a block?!). My hips and low back are so tight, sitting cross legged is painful (even on a block). My hamstrings are so tight that when I'm doing legs up the wall pose my thighs are at least 1 foot from the wall and it's still so painful. I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue, and how are you over coming it? How do you stretch the hamstrings and hips when they're in pain all the time? Any help or advice is much appreciated<3
