Yoga for Digestive Health

Posted by on Nov 18, 2016 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

It’s that time a year when food comes to the forefront of celebrating with family and friends. While sharing a specially prepared meal is a beautiful tradition, sharing in too many food-centered celebrations may leave our bodies and minds feeling not so well. Speaking of the link between bodies and minds, the connection between the mind and the gut is becoming better and better understood. There is a large part of our nervous system that lines the walls of the digestive system from the esophagus to the rectum, known as the Enteric Nervous System.

It means non-harming; it is something we as a people have been lacking lately. I saw a meme online this morning: “When it’s all over, all that really will have mattered is how we treated each other.” How well have we treated each another? Not very.

As in many sacred texts, the most important concept comes first (think Genesis 1:1). Ahimsa is...

Yoga for Pain Management

Posted by on Oct 28, 2016 in Evolution Blog |

Pain shows up in many forms and for many reasons. While some pain is the direct result of an injury, other pain presents itself over time, with no specific cause. Whether pain is acute or insidious, physical therapy combined with yoga can help. The five PT’s at Evolution PT and Yoga prefer to look at the whole person and incorporate yoga into patient care. Physical therapists consider the medical history, the location and description of the current problem, and find out the ways each person would be most likely to respond to a program. Often, yoga is a part of the plan because not only is it enjoyable, it...
