This month I speak with yoga therapist and master teacher Nancy O'Brien. Nancy was in a medically induced coma 20 years ago, when she was intubated for six weeks and underwent multiple surgeries. She credits her yoga practice with bringing her back and keeping her going. In practice now since 2006, Nancy is passionate about sharing therapeutic yoga practices with those in need. She’s especially passionate about helping COVID-19 ‘long haulers’—people who continue to struggle with myriad symptoms after recovering, including the effects of intubation.
Watch the vlog below as Nancy shares her healing journey. Then check out her website and other offerings:
On a personal note, I’m happy to share some good news: I have earned the title of Fellow Coach at BetterUp. I'm humbled and grateful to be a part of BetterUp, a community of world-class coaches using technology to offer evidence-backed, virtual coaching.
Additionally, this month I was awarded my PCC from the International Coaching Federation. PCC stands for Professional Certified Coach and is a recognized worldwide standard for coaching excellence. I’m feeling ever grateful to do the work I love.
Wishing you Resilience for Life,
