Say Hello to Your Pelvis

Posted by on Feb 23, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Since I joined Evolution Physical Therapy three years ago, I started thinking a lot more about the pelvis, and I haven’t stopped! From performing pelvic floor rehabilitation, helping clients improve core strength, and providing visceral manipulation to the bladder and uterus, working with this region of the body is a significant part of my PT practice. Due to lack a general lack of awareness of the pelvis and (by close association) the hips, our focus on this area takes on extra significance. Perhaps it is our puritanical New England roots that leave us dissociated from this part of the body. This trend may go even deeper into history, as...

Bringing Ahimsa into Everyday Life – A Winter Biker’s Tale

Posted by on Feb 22, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

With waterproof panniers and a reflective, rugged messenger bag, I felt bad ass….until it started to rain. I’ve always been a fair weather bike rider.  A little too much wind, stormy clouds on the horizon and I’m finding alternate form of transportation.  That is, until last year.  My partner and I agreed, that we really didn’t need both of our cars.

Our four door Prius wagon has more than enough room for all of our gear, was...

Loving Kindness Meditation: A Practical Method for Practicing Ahimsa

These are all patterns that we first need to identify and observe,...

Practicing Ahimsa With Ourselves

Posted by on Feb 5, 2018 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

As we explore February’s theme of Ahimsa, or non-violence, we begin by looking at how to practice this concept with ourselves. Here are some reflections from Gaby Goldberg on how the practice has helped her, and suggestions on simple ways to bring ahimsa into our daily lives: My first act of non-violence in 2018 was inspired by the owner of Evolution. Rather than creating resolutions, rigid schedules, or saying yes to every invitation that came my way, I made a conscious choice to step back and observe what I’m doing and why. I dropped into observing my responses to both inner and outer stimulus. I learned more about my...
