Philip Payson began practicing yoga when he was 53, desperate to find something that would heal his bad back. Within a few months of regular practice his back issues went away but another issue presented – cancer. Philip credits his yoga practice for saving his life. Without the deep twists, he believes he wouldn’t have felt the large tumor growing on his kidney. Now cancer free, he has dedicated his career to bringing yoga to people who would never walk into a yoga studio. His restorative classes are slow flow and the physical poses can be modified to be possible for anyone. Classically trained in a number of yoga styles, Philip is drawn to offering the healing potential yoga to all.”
Philip studied with Yoga Behind Bars and teaches at the Maine Correctional Center. Additionally, he currently teaches men in the long term residency program at Milestone Foundation in Old Orchard Beach. He is a member of Sea Change Yoga whose goal is to bring the healing potential of yoga to underserved communities such as incarcerated youth and people in recovery. He loves to share the benefits of this wonderful practice regardless of boundaries.
