1. Jessica Sinclair, Co-Founder & Yoga Teacher Trainer at Iha Yoga
Jessica Sinclair, founder, yoga teacher trainer of Iha Yoga had scoliosis and suffered from pain and numbness in her back all her life. In 2012, Jessica was introduced to yoga by her doctors to improve on her curvature of her spine. Jessica fell in love with yoga and realized that her crooked back was straightening and her overall quality of life has improved. Inspired, Jessica set up Iha Yoga together with Nicole He.
Â Jessica Sinclair in yoga inversion
Quote from Jessica Sinclair :
“Every time I encounter some issues, I’d do an inversion. The challenge of it takes my mind off the problem but yet trains my mind to tackle issues the same way I tackle an asana (pose). Slowly and systematically. When my inversion practice is complete, I always feel so much better (destress) and what I have to do with the task on hand becomes so clear.”
