Melissa Crisp is a student in JoAnn Lyon's People with Disabilities class. The following is a link to her article written in New Mobility Magazine about her journey to discover her love for practicing yoga.
"As someone with a low level spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia, I appreciate the knowledge and sensitivity of my teachers at PYS. Also, I'm grateful for their trust to allow me to be able to get up into a head stand independently, where as I need their assistance in most any other yoga pose. The interdependence between teacher, aid and student is one to be recognized and emulated."
"The poses and mudras which helped me a lot in remaining calm among the pain, chaos and rushing of things in my life."
