Morgan, Horses, and Yoga

Posted by on Aug 22, 2016 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Evolution Yoga teacher, Morgan Merrihew would neither admit nor deny that her first name comes from the Morgan horse, that noble breed that was to influence the course of horse breeding in the United States and the world. (It is fun to note here that the first ever Morgan horse was bred in Vermont by Justin Morgan in the 1780s.) But she did concede the she had the horse Jones early on in her life. As a girl growing up in the Adirondacks, she begged her parents for a horse. She pleaded and strategized. Her parents lived on a couple acres, so she made a budget that included the...

Balance is the name of the game, after all! The hip...

Ask the PT: Use the Yoga Wall to Release Your Low Back

Posted by on Jun 20, 2016 in Evolution Blog |

We spend 16 of the 24 hours each day (or more!)  on our feet- walking, running, standing, bending! All this work and play can eventually lead to increased wear and tear on our spine.
