What nobody told me that I needed to hear: surgery is not even the beginning; in its closest approximation, it’s a preamble. Recovery is long. It requires daily practice to see results. “Progress” is insulting small and incredibly slow. The pain. That constant, nagging pain. How everything hurt, sitting at a table for lunch, standing to brush my teeth, lying down to watch tv. As bad as I felt coming out of surgery, it was nothing compared to the “water-boarding-like” pain of daily life with a physical limitation: small enough alone you feel you should be able to ignore it, but its constant nature slowly drives you insane. Fortunately, my partner, Simon, supported me moving into the scary places of pain and discomfort in this new body necessary to continually improve.
This video expresses better than any words can- I know the fear. I know the pain. I know the struggle. I know the need for support.
I’ve taken every part of this journey- from the uncertainty in the first moments of injury to the ongoing quest to approach greater physical feats- and crafted this program to support you in continuous improvement. If you’re on crutches, if you’re dealing with weight management, if you think you’re too far “over the hill,” I’m all in to give you a lens, a tool box and a teacher to transform what was impossible to possible.
I hope you are inspired by my journey and start to believe that you are capable beyond whatever perceived limitation you set for yourself. This is a belief not rooted in comparison- left to right, past to present, before to after. It is a belief that says: “Maybe. Let’s try.” The My somatic experience was the fertile ground that grew this program. More than me knowing this- my body knows this. I’ve been there. And I want you to be here with me- on the other side of doubt, fear, weakness and suffering. Yes, you can.
