Local yoga instructor helps wheelchair bound seniors stay healthy
“Wheelchair Yoga”… it almost sounds like an oxymoron, but that’s exactly what Rancho Santa Fe Yoga Instructor, Kelly Wislar is doing in extending the lives of senior citizens and others who are confined to wheelchairs.
Through her unique teaching regimen of stretching and deep breathing, she is literally “breathing new life” into the souls of those who thought they could never enjoy the benefits of physical exercise. Wislar’s desire to use Yoga to help others has a deep personal connection. She credits Yoga in helping her to beat a battle with Thyroid cancer.
