The key to obtaining the ELDOA™️ is both the verbal and physical cues.

Verbal cues can be tricky.  Some words are confusing or too technical.  We have to find the right words that our students can connect with.

When we can’t find the words then we use touch.  Touching will get the brain to the specific area where we are touching.

Physical touch allow for greater proprioception and awareness.

Physical touch allows us know if tension is being placed in the correct location and how to adjust the posture to achieve the ELDOA™️ In many way, the physical touch is more important than our words.

I have decided to share my stories again on youtube, starting with the scoliosis/spinal fusion tag! Just wanting to talk about it and help others through their journey and be that role model for others.

8 WEEKS POST OP TODAY! Surgery seems like it was just yesterday, and yet my post op discomfort has become so minimal, I can barely tell I’ve had anything done. It’s crazy! I’m back to work full time, and overall feeling great. In this photo I’m wearing my lovely Alyson necklace created by @marthahunt for @pluma_italia to honor how far I’ve come and support other women just like me with scoliosis. The pendant says “Resilient” on one side, and “Inegal” on the other, which is French for for uneven. Proceeds for the necklace go to the Curvy Girls charity (@cgscoliosis), which educates, supports and unites girls with scoliosis. We are bent, but not broken, and definitely still beautiful! #scoliosis #scoliosisawareness #spinalfusionsurgery #spinalfusionrecovery #bentbutnotbroken #curvygirl #resilient #iamtitanium

Scoliosis ~~~~~
Today was my 5 year X-ray comparison. When ever I see my X-rays I’m always amazed, how am I standing up so straight? I’m truly blessed to have my health, my physical ability to do everything I want and that I am able to deal with the pain and fatigue that comes with this condition with nothing but a positive attitude and strength. I do work hard to maintain my health, but we all should do that anyway, mentally and physically. The next time I want to complain, I’m not going to, it could be so much worse!! I still have to wait for the report..... no matter what I’ll be ok!! #yoga  #livelifefully #life #loveyourself  #happiness  #inspiration #positivevibes #beautiful #fitness  #motivation #scoliosis #scoliosisfighter #scoliosisawareness #scoliosiswarrior #spine #scoliosissurvivor #scoliosislife #scoliosisstrong #scoliosisgirl #bentnotbroken #scoliosisstory #scoliosissupport #gotyourback #physiotherapy  #healthylife #spinalfusion #scoliosisfamily  #invisibleillness  #wevegotyourback

Crooked much??🙈😂😳 Yesterday I took “before” pics for my little 3 day detox I’m doing- - and geez Louise...no, I am not standing on one hip, I’m standing flat footed. I’ve always had a crooked hip and spine, scoliosis, but in the last year it’s gotten way worse. I’m doing several different things lately to deal with the pain & just to strengthen the muscles on one side. 
So far, these things are helping:
-chiropractor
-massage
-Pilates
-range & repair exercises

Anyone know of any other tools or tricks to help with this?

Another thing to consider when you train people

Don't tell a person to contract a muscle, the  function will do it for you.  It is very rare that I tell someone to consciously tighten an area on the body when I train them

Most of the time, the contractions in their muscles happen at a level that overrides their current conditioing.  It takes a ton of precision, but this is why we change people's mechanics so often

Yes, I have bifocals! 👓😱😂 👵🏼 I have a problem with my eyes called convergence insufficiency. It causes me to have a hard time focusing when reading, the words get blurry and slide together. It also causes me to see double sometimes. I’ve never liked reading and this is probably why. I’ve always had it but I didn’t know that other people didn’t see things this way, so I wasn’t diagnosed until last year!  I told my mom that I would see 2 or 3 volleyballs when I played 😬 That’s when she knew something wasn’t right. I just knew that I need to hit the darker ball or the one in the middle so it was never obvious that I was having vision problems 😂. My glasses are bifocals so that I can look through the bottom prescription part when reading and the top non prescription part all other times. I usually just take them off if I’m not at school or reading though because it’s easier!

Welles’ fourth Mehta cast surgery went very well on Monday. The doctor is very happy with his progress in the casts!

He did have a few episodes of oxygen desaturation during recovery, down to the 60’s. Unlike last time he seemed to rebound from them quickly. After a few extra hours of observation he was able to go home.

Due to the rescheduling of his surgery, they weren’t able to do the Coban Art on his cast this time. However, if they determine with an X-ray after they take off this cast in February that he does in fact need to continue casting, the plan is for them to do it next time!

Welles’ “day of surgery” video went up this morning! Make sure you are subscribed to The Riley Family YouTube channel ➡️ YouTube.com/TheRileyFamily (link also in bio). .

A few weeks ago, @maddy_roseeeee taught this piece in contemporary and I’m still thinking about it. I felt like everyone in class connected and really tapped into their emotions that night, I know I was able to. It is a gift to be able to dance and leave class feeling inspired.
•
Taking a dance class shouldn’t be about perfection. I have to remind myself to stop comparing my ability to the people around me. When I stop comparing myself, I can really appreciate the incredible talent and emotion others bring to class. It’s an honor to be surrounded by such beautiful dancers and friends! •

The question I get most often in the South is this: So you teach yin and restorative?

The answer — and I say this as lovingly as possible and also while laughing — is no!

Because our cultural understanding of yoga has become, for the most part, limited to vinyasa, flow, and “power yoga,” the assumption is that yoga exists in two camps — flow vs. restorative.

Like I told someone last weekend, classes with my teacher are often far more challenging than anything I did during years of practicing vinyasa and power yoga.

That’s not to claim better than, since personally I don’t believe that harder is always better or best, and I learned from that same teacher to work small and intelligently and intentionally, but to illustrate that alignment yoga can be as challenging as we ask it to be.

It was alignment work, for example, that finally helped me make sense of handstands.

In fact, strengthening in static poses is often harder than flow for me and many I’ve taught because 1) it asks us to stay with something uncomfortable, accept it, be with it, develop a relationship with it, and breathe, rather than blowing past it, and 2) because we are often strengthening the entire length of the muscle rather than its superficial layers, as we might in some gym or yoga situations.

For me and students I work with, yoga practices are intentionally shaped to serve whatever purpose is needed - perhaps to invigorate, awaken, and strengthen. Perhaps also to restore. Usually not one or the other exclusively. More often, and as long as time allows, you will feel both invigorated and restored. Some days you may leave feeling calm, and others buzzing.

Balance is the goal.

Yoga is a vast ocean and a single class merely scratches a fingernail over the top of it. We can take from that ocean to work on issues like #scoliosis #herniation or #anxiety, or we can simply build strength and explore good old fashioned asana. Or pranayama. The sky’s the limit, people.

This was taken at Yoga Union in NYC but I’m currently teaching workshops and privates in Greenville, SC :) #alignmentyoga #yeahthatgreenville #greenvillesc #yogaforscoliosis #bentnotbroken #yogatime🙏 #yogahealing #balancedlife
