Meet Mishell Vale Elliston, owner, eightlimfit
Hello and welcome! I’ll keep this brief, because your time is valuable and I’m all about making the most of it.
How do I know that yoga works wonders on the mind and body? Because yoga gave me back full balance, strength and coordination after a childhood accident that paralyzed the entire left side of my body. Doctors told my mom I might never walk again but, with help, I retrained my mind and body to relearn what I’d already learned as a toddler. Yet as I entered adulthood, I was far from having the strength and range of motion to do everything I wanted. (Click here to read the whole story).
Though my physical limitations made it difficult at first, in 1998 I began to practice and study traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga, as well as medicine ball. The practice changed my life as I earned my 500-hour-plus Certification from Yoga master Eric Faqir at Advanced Yoga Sciences in San Francisco, CA.
No matter what your physical challenges, no matter what your story, I can help you train your mind and body to perform at their full potential. I specialize in working with seniors in the post physical therapy stage of recovery, individuals with Parkinson’s and other physical challenges who still need an ongoing fitness plan long after short-term physical therapy ends.
I work closely with physical therapists and physicians to design a plan just for you, in your own home.
I offer a full range of services including yoga, medicine ball training, nutrition and Ayruveda counseling. All things I practice and believe in.
That’s my story in a nutshell. I’ve been at square one, and I know how great it feels to do things once beyond my reach—like competing in triathlons and keeping up with my non-stop 12-year-old daughter.
Thank you for visiting us here at eightlimfit.com. Looking forward to meeting you face-to-face.
To your health!
