I am writing this from a hotel room in Germany. My point? I have to travel a lot for work, which brings disadvantages that include long periods of bad posture on trains and planes, and not being able to attend yoga classes every week! Em’s videos have therefore proved invaluable.
I first tried yoga years ago, but haven’t done it properly until I started attending Emma’s class last year. Before then I had tried most alternative treatments for lower back pain, which I have had now since surfing twice daily in Australia eight years ago.
I now attend Em’s classes whenever possible, and have found a marked improvement in my flexibility. It has also helped rebuild shattered confidence in my back. The mix of classes and using the videos at home/when travelling is a real help, as the videos use similar content to the live sessions.
I know plenty of surfers with back pain, but none that would probably do a proper yoga routine before or straight after surfing, as all want to maximize time in the water. I am guilty of this, but at least will now try to do the post surf routine later that evening – it’s a great way to wind body and mind down.
I still surf very regularly and firmly hope and believe Em’s techniques will help prolong my surfing days for the next few decades.
Once she includes her music playlists too, it’ll be the complete package...!
