In this episode I interviewed Libby Hinsley. Libby lives in Asheville, NC and is a Doctor of Physical Therapy as well as a Certified Yoga Therapist. She draws most of her Yoga inspiration from the tradition of Desikachar, or the viniyoga lineage and she was fortunate to study at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in 2008 and has immersed herself in this tradition ever since. Her treatment approach is to view the person as a forest. The body is one component of the human experience, and it is impacted by all the others. In the same way, effective treatment of the body requires understanding how all of its parts work together for integrated function.
Libby has a new book coming out entitled Yoga for Bendy People. It explores specific approaches to yoga practices to best support people with hypermobility syndromes. Libby herself lives with Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, so the topic is a passion of hers. We explored this a bit more on the podcast.
