I met Angelina Boschin and her incredibly supportive family in 2016, shortly after she had had reconstructive surgery to help her mobility. Here are the testimonials she and her mother wrote in 2020:
Angelina: Coco's yoga has majorly benefitted me physically and mentally. After each session I always feel stronger, knowing that I am one step further down the path of combatting my disability. Coco's encouraging words push me to try new yoga techniques even when I find them hard at first. Despite all the hard work during sessions there is always time for a wind down, which is where the mental benefit comes in, during this time meditation is practiced. Through meditation I am able to clear the busy thoughts that buzz around my head. This opens the gate for self reflection after sessions and reminds me to sometimes stop and relax my mind every now and then. I honestly couldn't be happier with what yoga had done for my life!
Maria: When I first heard about Coco having a Modified Yoga program, I was excited to see what this would do for my daughter Angelina. Angelina has Cerebral Palsy and it has affected her physically where she relies on a walker and wheelchair. With Coco's expertise, she was able to decipher Angelina's needs and modify yoga movements that would best suit Angelina for strength and to relax tense muscles. Through these sessions I have seen tremendous improvement in Angelina's posture, strength in her movements, and confidence in her walking. This year Angelina was able to walk on her own with the use of canes. It is a true testament to Coco that Angelina can accomplish this task with the support and positive approach that Coco provides through her Yoga service.
