Physical Therapy, Chronic Pain, Yoga

I started doing physical therapy for chronic post-surgical pain right around the same time that I stopped practicing mediation and asana at home.  I was hesitant to enter into a year-long teach training because I was already spending too much time thinking about broken parts of my body.  Yoga, however, is not about the broken parts of your body, but about the awesome parts of having a body (especially if you breathe) and now that the swollen muscle / damaged nerve cluster in my chest is better and I have full feeling in my hands again I think PT is done. That way, I can get back to the parts of yoga I really like: breath, calm, soothing and toning nervous system, & yoga party tricks.
