Anna Pesce lived with her scoliosis for years, eventually developing a hunchback. A herniated disc and osteoporosis also took their toll. She remembers, “I had this horrible pain shooting up my back. I had to be carried up the stairs and put into a wheelchair…”

But that was before yoga.

This month’s series, Make the Turn, is focused on the “how” of creating your intentions. Anna Pesce is a perfect example of what happens when you take a big intention like “radiant health” and make an actionable plan.

First, she decided she was open to all ideas to ease the pain (even at the age of 85!). That’s when her granddaughter introduced her to her instructor Rachel Jesien, a yoga instructor and fellow scoliosis patient.

Then Anna said yes to trying yoga as a treatment.

She liked it so much that she made a commitment, scheduling weekly private sessions.

Take one minute to watch the incredible video below. The results speak for themselves.

We salute your powerful example, Anna!
