When I started dancing at Denver Women’s Correctional Facility I walked out of prison in serious pain; pain to the point of not knowing if I could continue to teach or not. My sciatica flared up after each class. I bought a new pair of shoes and even tried putting a soft, puzzle piece type floor beneath me in the gym while teaching. Neither solution helped. I was worried!
THEN I DISCOVERED HOKAS! No joke – night and day difference. I can now jump up and down on the prison’s unforgiving floor free of sciatica pain!
When I dance in prison, I only wear my Hokas!
