I am only halfway through Dr. Bell and am AMAZED!!! This information is invaluable not only for our yoga classes but anyone that is alive. Thank you for making the workshop  online so available. I am anxious to share some of the findings with one person in particular in my class. This may be life changing for her.

I love learning about the ‘mechanics’ of problems we may have and her course gave me lots of easily understood new information. E.G. location of vestibular system (thought it was more inside the head), that vertigo can sometimes be cured, stamping/marching after uttanasana.
