I had my first visit about a year ago when I was feeling a lot of lower back pain and recently started going again for some care for my f'ed up rotator cuff. Something happens when I go to this office and I just want to chat chat chat about the human body and it's mechanics and how it works and the marvels of it all. And luckily Dr. Grant seems happy to converse about these things with me. Part of me thinks he's pretty lucky to have me as a patient not only because I'm physically flexible especially in the spine, but because I kind of hang on every word he says when he talks about what's going on. I ask questions and want to know more. To him, it's probably almost like having a student to mentor.
Anyway, next he confessed that he was asking these questions for his own self-interest. He is putting together a wellness summer camp for inner city kids and was wondering if I'd be interested in coming to teach the kids yoga! I was (and still am) totally flattered and excited! My mind is filled with ideas of what it will be like, and what this could lead to- fantasies of working with a small holistic health care group of some sort... they pay my way for training programs in the healing arts...give me health insurance and good pay...maybe I even go back to grad school again and become a chiropractor (ha!).... and other, more realistic career fantasies like he refers clients to me and I have lots of private yoga sessions. BUT, first, I have to do some serious research and teach myself ways to share yoga with kids. You can bet I've already started googling that.
