Ilene has used yoga to manage a chronic spinal condition since 2008. This experience has motivated her to study anatomy and how yoga can help with injury management, prevention and healing. She has participated in professional workshops for yoga teachers on yoga for back care, and is experienced in working with students with conditions including herniated discs, sciatica, spondilolysthesis, scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphosis.
