After decades of suffering from severe scoliosis and a hunchback, Anna Pesce a New York resident completely transformed her body and her life, all within a two-month period.
85 years old at the time, Pesce was wheelchair-bound by the time she met back care specialist and yoga therapist, Rachel Jesien. “[At that point] I’d tried everything: acupuncture, a physical therapist and seeing a chiropractor,” she told the New York Post. “You feel good temporarily, but [I’d be] in pain again soon after.” Now Jesien visits Pesce in her home once a week, and the two move through restorative poses and stretches together. After only one month, Pesce was able to walk again. “After two months, another big milestone was that [Pesce] knew what poses to do whenever the usual pains would come up for her,” Jesien says. “For example, if she was having hip pain, she’d sit on a chair and do an ankle-to-knee pose.” By her fourth month, the 85-year-old could do a modified headstand, with her back leaning against the wall.
