A Week of PT Service in Port-de-Paix, Haiti

Posted by on Nov 21, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Saturday, October 14th was the official PT Day of Service. While many PT’s around the country provided falls risk assessments and other valuable services, I took a day to reflect on my week of PT service in Port-de-Paix, Haiti. To better understand Haiti, there are a few things to consider. Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. The square mileage of Haiti (10,714) is just slightly more than Vermont (9,623) yet the population of Haiti is 10.5 million (compare to VT, 624,595). The average Haitian makes about $750 per year, and the median age is 22.6. The infrastructure in Haiti was not ideal prior to 2010, but...

Ask the PT: Yoga for Stress Management – 3 Techniques

Posted by on Oct 29, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Exercise is often the go-to remedy for managing stress. The problem is, when life gets really crazy — as in, there-is-no-time-for-anything-else crazy — physical activity is the first thing that goes from many of our routines. In the west, many of us first experience the calming effects of a physical asana-based yoga class. However, a traditional yoga practice is so much more than the physical yoga postures. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, there is only one posture: to sit. This ancient practice of yoga focuses on mindfully living your life, breath work, concentration and meditation practices. To truly tackle the problem of stress, you need to work with...
