Susi Hately fundamentally believes that healing is possible. As a young student of yoga, Susi began to combine the ancient practices of yoga with her BSc.Kinesiology at a Vancouver pain clinic. When she continued to encounter individuals, including yoga instructors, who accepted that their pain was “normal”, she began to explore how yoga was being taught and practiced. By designing therapy programs that utilized sound anatomical principles of kinesiology with the time honored practices of yoga she enabled people to find pain relief, and rediscover vitality in their lives.
Susi’s work has set a new standard in mind body rehabilitation for helping people thaw frozen shoulders, prepare for and recover from surgeries, reduce flare ups associated with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and migraines as well as manage ongoing treatment protocols including radiation and chemotherapy. In this episode, we learn Susi’s own personal story with movement, pain, education and how she’s gotten where she is today in practice and philosophy. Susi and Kathryn chat in depth on a range of topics including yoga and Susi’s approach to accessing the shapes offer by the practice, embodiment and moving into a pose in an individual capacity versus achieving a desire aesthetic or shape, the broad pelvic floor, post-natal movement, running, belly bands, and breathing. So many of Kathryn’s student have also studied with Susi and we are excited to have her on the podcast to share her knowledge with our greater community.
