The fabulous Gwen Miller is back! As a Balanced Body Pilates educator, author of the upcoming book, Safe Movement for All Spines - A Guide to Spinal Anatomy and How to Work with 21 Spine and Hip Conditions, and creator of The Dynamic Spine, a continuing education course for Pilates, yoga, and fitness professionals, Gwen is the perfect person to discuss the language of healing.
If you teach any kind of movement to people in pain, & struggle to create an inclusive, healing environment, today's episode will help.
Gwen Miller is a certified Pilates teacher with over 20 years of experience, a registered yoga therapist, and a Hendrickson Method manual therapist.
After losing 80 pounds and rediscovering her health, Gwen Miller discovered that she had “degenerative disc disease” and “degenerative joint disease.” She was only forty!
Unfortunately, due to her prior obesity and poor posture, the discs between her spinal vertebrae had become compressed and worn thin, and this caused excessive wear-and-tear of Gwen's spinal vertebrae. It was shocking news. She had to change everything she was doing or my discs and spine would continue to degenerate.
That was when Gwen discovered Pilates. At first, it was just another certification to add to her ever-growing list of qualifications, but when she found that it was a system of exercise that she could do even with her degenerated spine, Gwen fell in love. So much so that twenty years later she's a Master Instructor for Balanced Body Pilates, an international Pilates education company.
Gwen has a reputation as a teacher who helps people, working with those who have spinal pathologies and other joint issues, or are healing from injuries or surgeries.
