i transformed one of my students of yoga/bodywork – a former National Champion in his sport – back to the top ten of last weekends’ National CycleCross Championships in Austin, TX. one year ago? his body was like the fabled tale of Zumbaks’ Suit; all twisted and contorted and full of deep cellular, neural, and hormonal imbalance from decades of professional cycling without a wholistic coach in his corner.

Which DVD should I get?!! I was reminded this weekend by the Pilates instructor at the booth next to ours at an expo we were at that my flat feet, ankles rolling in, hip flexor tightness, etc., is making my inner thigh muscles weak. I know that, and that’s why they hurt like hell if I run 4-5 miles!

“Dear Coach,

When doing your hp prop workout it is very obvious that I have strength imbalances ( right side stronger than the left). I notice it more in my stomach and back. It is much easier for me to hit my right elbow to my left knee while doing sit-ups than it is to hit my left elbow to my right knee. Do you have any advice to help take care of these imbalances?

Peace by the journey,

El Coache!

Alright soooo, i was bouldering earlier today and fell about 15 feet and jammed my ankle, knee, and leg. Left SI slightly stiff and knee kinda feeling it, but my left ankle is hurt. i can move it but it hurts really bad to walk on. i don’t feel like its broken, it feels like its been jammed really bad though. Depending how it feels tomorrow, i will probably go to the hospital. My reason for this email is that i would like to use MAP to help heal and was wondering how many bottles to order. i will go through your link. i weigh about 165- 170lbs.

Thanks soo much

Blown Out Knees = Beacon For Higher Practice

Ananda’s knee; after a botched surgery job decades ago after injuring her knee while dancing onstage, her knee is still vulnerable to swelling after outdoor activities, yet has grown consistently stronger and is regenerating in spite of nearly a bone-on-bone situation when i first met her and began her on the Wholistic Fitness™ Healing Path…
Karmically; if we are too quick to look for external ‘fixes’ to our in-Jury’s…we’ll simply keep having to suffer the same lesson, until we ‘get’ the spiritual life lesson of the injury or illness.

Need some assistance in your “Injury Blessing”?
