Episode 25 of the Peace with Endo Podcast features a chat I had with fellow endo sister, Kimberly Castello. She’s a certified yoga therapist and wellness consultant.
I related so much to Kimberly’s story of burn out and her natural type A, perfectionist personality. She was led to yoga after her health crashed, but in a new way. It wasn’t about the postures. It was about the breath and ultimately the relationship she found with herself.
She shares some great tips for using your breath to manage pain, stress and the patterns that can show up with giving more than you receive.
⬆️ Take a listen above.
Kimberly received her training as a Yoga Therapist from Loyola Marymount University (YTRX) and is certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT). She completed her Clinical Internship with the Simms Mann Venice Family Clinic in Los Angeles, California. She specializes in developing chronic pain management programs for individuals, hospitals and clinics.
Kimberly developed a Multiple Sclerosis Yoga Therapy program for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and provides an integrative approach to assist in supporting and managing chronic conditions such as MS, Parkinsons, Cancer, Endometriosis, Heart Disease, Autoimmune illnesses as well as various other populations.
Having experienced the benefits of Yoga Therapy first-hand, after being diagnosed with a painful illness, Kimberly became interested in extending her practice to help support others who are living with chronic pain, injury and illness.
Kimberly offers private Yoga Therapy programs in person and online. She also teaches weekly therapeutic yoga classes. She is a Registered Yoga Teacher Trainer (E-RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance, a Certified Restorative Trainer through Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., PT. and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
