About 3 years ago Bub had a serious Skiing accident that resulted in a severe brain injury left her unable to walk or talk. Ever since she came out of her coma she's been on a painstaking journey towards regaining the ability to control her body just how she did before her accident.
Currently Bub can't walk and has limited control over the right side of her body, which was previously her strongest side. She's confined to a wheelchair and although she's strong in both her arms and legs, it's too much of a challenge to fit body movements together to take unassisted steps.
In our sessions we're using Yoga Therapy as well as Pole Dance to encourage regular body function, and the achievements have already been amazing in such a short period of time.
I'm a great believer that you have to find some enjoyment in things that you do for your health and Bub gave our yoga therapy classes 10 out of 10, with a big smile, which means so much to me as her yoga and dance therapist.
Bub is my teacher as much as I am hers, she's allowed me to learn so much and has inspired me to be a better person and to get on with some things I have been putting off. After all, I'm fully capable and have no excuse for procrastinating.
All the Physio and specialist appointments that Bub attends each week mean that she has to put a massive effort into her rehab routine, and I'm so grateful that I'm now a small part of her life.
To give us a focus for our pole dance classes we've got a goal to dance together at the next Showtime in May. So I hope to see you there for some encouragement and support for someone who really deserves it.
