Matthew Sanford: Mind Body Solutions
October 24, 2006
Hosted by Joyce Bender
It took a devastating car accident, paralysis from the chest down, and dependence on a wheelchair before Matthew Sanford truly realized the importance of his body. He has been rolling into his body ever since. After the accident, Matthew spent the first fourteen years believing that his mind was shut out of his paralyzed body. He spent the next twelve years practicing hatha yoga and discovered how deeply he was mistaken. Living vibrantly through one’s whole body – whether paralyzed or not – is a powerful part of living. Tune in as Matthew talks with Joyce about his company, Mind Body Solutions.
