Join us on an exploration into our bodies from a Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist's perspective.

What Osteoarthritis REALLY looks like in the Body with Sherry & Justine
We saw Osteoarthritis in 4 different body locations where you would expect this condition to be most prevalent. The knee, hip, shoulder and lumbar spine. But what we didn't realize is that it looks much different than any anatomical photos or graphics that we are used to seeing.
