What are the Benefits of Yoga for My Illness? with Clarissa Hidalgo
Yoga is a mindful movement practice that a lot of people with chronic illnesses have said is helpful for them. There is also a ton of empirical research supporting its use with a number of conditions. But what exactly are the benefits? MS Warrior and Yoga Instructor, Clarissa Hidalgo joins us to explain the benefits she has found.
In this episode we discuss:
- the benefits of yoga
- different types of yoga practices
- why you shouldn't dismiss it so quickly
Clarissa Hidalgo (RYT 200) received her yoga teacher certification in the spring of 2017. She began practicing after being treated for Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 2010, and experiencing mobility issues since 2012. Since the beginning, yoga benefited her physically, yet since her training she realized the various emotion, mental, and wellness benefits of her practice. Receiving her BA in psychology from the University of California, Merced in 2012, she was not only able to incorporate and recognize the benefits of yoga physically and mentally, but tap into the mindfulness and self-healing powers as well.
After the delivery of her beautiful baby girl, she embraced her renewed sense of self and life, realizing that after many years she would finally fulfill her destiny to become a diffuser of yogic wisdom. Her personal philosophy is, YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE, EVERYTHING, AT ANY TIME!!
