Health How to avoid body pain from work (your desk, chair, slumping) How to avoid body pain from work (your desk, chair, slumping)
Recently, I was able to catch up with an expert on physical therapy and dance, Colorado-based Mieke Scripps. She studied dance and kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin while performing in the modern dance troop Li Chiao-Ping Dance. After her dance career, she received her doctorate in physical therapy from Northwestern University and then worked as a physical therapist for the New York City Ballet, the School of American Ballet, the Miami City Ballet, the Juilliard School and on many Broadway shows. Mieke found that yoga was an effective and safe complementary movement therapy to improve stability and strength while also increasing flexibility. She has recently relocated to Colorado and is integrating physical therapy with her expertise in yoga training for the Colorado Ballet Academy and in her own private practice. I was able to do an extensive three-part email interview with Dr. Scripps.
