About

De-Stress Therapist, Coach and Teacher

Ingrid Fikr

My "de-stress" journey started about ten years ago after a car accident, which left me debilitating pain and the inability to perform basic daily tasks such as brushing teeth, combing my hair, or holding a book. I had a great team of doctors and holistic therapists working with me multiple times per week, but I didn't improve. I did everything they asked, but my body, mind and emotions were stubbornly resisting all efforts to get better.

Out of sheer desperation, I went to a yoga studio and took the "easiest" class they offered - restorative yoga class. To my immense surprise, it was very gentle yoga with a few poses and a lot of meditation, which eased my aching body's discomfort.

And I realized that deep meditation switching my stress or "fight or flight" response to "rest and restore" was a missing link in my recovery program. I could not get better because I was in chronic stress caused by the accident and never-ending two years of pain.
