A.S. Face 0214: Melinda Frisch

I am 60 years old and from Clarksville, Maryland. I have AS. I teach therapeutic yoga and have attached some photos. A lot of my story can be found on my website, listed below. I will try to write more later.  Two favorite quotes come from  my yoga teacher and friend, Jenny Otto.  “You can’t heal what you can’t feel.”  Visualize yourself whole.”
Thank you for what you are doing for AS awareness.

  2. I am interested in your website, but dont see it —

  3. Oh my goodness I have been looking for something like this. I was doing yoga everyday until I couldn’t. I have been wanting to find a way to continue that wont hurt, that I could due whether I was in a flare or not. Thanks so much. I have been wanting to be a yoga teacher too but figured I probably can’t now. I’ll find a way, I always do.

  4. Jenni, my website is linked now. Shelly, YES you can do yoga and teach it, too! I teach it to people who face all kinds of physical challenges, such as MS, cancer, joint replacement, stroke recovery…and the list goes on. My students inspire me to go on!

  5. You’re an inspiration. 🙂 Thank you for sharing. (hug)
