During the summer of 2017 I became a certified (and registered) 200 hour Yoga Teacher, but no matter how much information I learned in those 200 hours I am always searching for more.
One thing that I love about the digital media world is how easy it is to find other people who have knowledge to share with you. Dr. Jen Crane was one of those people for me.
I found her Instagram one day when I was watching a friend’s story and I instantly fell in love with her content. She did not only have gorgeous photos of her Performing arts but also a plethora of information I was hungry to soak in.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that she sold e-books in addition to all the free info she shared on her page. SOoooo I quickly shot her a message to talk about a collaboration for the two of us. Jen looked through my page and recommended her BACKBENDING, VOLUME 1: SHOULDERS AND UPPER BACK ebook for me to use in my practice. I happily accepted and as soon as I ordered my additional props, I got to work.
The thing that I love the most about this ebook is that literally EVERYTHING I read in the book was new for me. Although I’ve read countless books, ebooks, blogs, you name it, I still hadn’t learned any of this information about soft tissue prep, Nerve Glides, and Muscle Activation/Strengthening Exercises. So like a kid on a new trampoline, I hopped aboard and spent a good two hours reading and practicing everything I could on that first day.
Fast forward to today and I’m still impressed with how helpful this ebook has been for me in my own yoga practice. I’m able to do these exercises and warm-ups in addition to my current practice and I’ve already seen tremendous improvement.
My favorite quote in the whole ebook is “hurts so good” because I think that’s really the only accurate way for me to explain how these exercises are going to make you feel.
For a visual representation of just how effective this ebook is, the “before” was taken directly before I completed all of the exercises (and yes, I am bending as far as I can with an un-warmed body - without going too far so I don’t hurt myself) and the “after” photo was taken about 75 minutes later, after completing EVERYTHING in the ebook.
So if my testimony doesn’t convince you to give this ebook a try, then maybe that photo will!
