E-RYT / YACEP / SYT / BWY Teacher / Adv R&R® Trainer / Certified iRest® Teacher
A practitioner, a student, a teacher and trainer of yoga… Adelene feels blessed to be on this path with many who seek love, peace and stillness. Through yoga, Adelene reconnects to being truly integrated in life and all it has to offer.
Having been diagnosed with a progressive S-curve scoliosis at age 13, some physical activities were limited within, and outside school. She was not very active in her growing up years, and experienced chronic back pain, which was possibly exacerbated by increasingly sedentary when she started college. When she was told that she may be confined to using a wheelchair should the condition deteriorate, and may have to be bed-ridden for the second half of pregnancy should she become pregnant, life ahead seemed bleak and painful. It was emotionally and mentally devastating.
Adelene met yoga in her early twenties. She studied, explored, committed to her practice therapeutically and dedicatedly for years. She is now more active then ever before, manages her back condition with confidence, and reinvented life for herself. There has been a positive regression observed and confirmed with medical records, and more importantly, she feels positive and motivated by her condition. Adelene now enjoys horse-riding, scuba diving, all season hiking and some high intensity spin classes.
