This is an article published recently about my dear friend Rafe Biggs. In 2004 Rafe fell off a rooftop in Dharamsala not long after we had travelled away in different directions in India. The next time I saw him was when he had returned to his hometown in Indiana, US. Since then I have been blessed to spend lots of blessed time with him in California. We held a workshop together some years ago, attended by caregivers who learned to support their clients with healing stretches, twists, massage techniques, all done in a sustainable way so that both people involved were breathing and using proper physical techniques, good for the body. This was a lot of the foundation of the Modified yoga techniques I use for my most physically-challenged students
Rafe is now at the forefront of some very progressive topics. Enjoy the read and let me know if you would be interested in attending an appearance by Rafe here in Windsor!
