Do you have back pain? Then this interview with Sara Curry, co-owner of Blaze Yoga Studio in Portsmouth, NH is a MUST LISTEN. Sara found yoga when a lifetime of contact sports and weight lifting left her debilitated by back pain. After using yoga to rehabilitate her own body and mind, she dedicated herself to a life of helping others take back control of their health, wellness, and their lives. Sara’s classes blend physicality and meditation toward the same goals: healing, health, and self-awareness. Far and away the top downloaded episode, this conversation unpacks sources of back pain, problems with the current models for pain treatment and why I find Sara to be a true role model.
