Surgery, chronic illness, and recovery all leave trauma deep in cell memory. The ongoing growth of scar tissue as well as the body compensating for pain build patterns that become difficult to break long after the trauma. In cases of chronic pain or disease this is even more difficult as the patterns compound as the body attempts to adjust.  Claudia is deeply rooted in the believe that what we put into our bodies, either by choice, (entertainment of a violent nature, lack of exposure to wilderness, sunlight, chlorophyll, clean whole foods, eating animals who have lived a life of restraint and inhumane conditions off life and death), deprive the patient from reaching full potential of happiness and recovery. Our specialized programs range from spinal stenosis surgery, hip replacement,  cancer, ALS, degenerative disk disease, and progressive bone disease, breast cancer, auto immune diseases, colo-rectal cancer, C.O.P.D., and other pathologies, Snow Lion yoga has added new specialized workshops addressing “WHAT WE PUT IN OUR BODIES”.
