Dr. Milescu is currently studying formal advanced training in therapeutic pilates, while healing from her second surgery to rebuild her hips from congenital Hip Dysplasia and Severe Hip Arthritis.
Here is her latest update:
I wanted to introduce myself and my back story as to why I am here studying Pilates.
I am a former Podiatric Physician specializing in wound care who closed my practice in 2012. I ended up cultivating and growing Serenity Now Yoga a Wellness Center since 2010.
I grew up as a gymnast.
A lot of damage was done to my joints with this sport practicing at the elite level and even living away from parents at the Karoly property Texas.
I’ve been in chronic on and off pain since 2008 when a MVA caused my back to worsen disc bulges L1-L5 and as of 2018 L-1 Full herniation with partial nerve compression.
Meanwhile Yoga seemed to transform my situation and was then inspired to teach yoga.
I’ve owned Serenity Now Yoga since 2010.
I have enjoyed my journey so much.
In 2012 lots of changes occurred.
I closed my podiatry practice for a variety of reasons, and became and college professor teaching anatomy & physiology daytime, while being yoga teacher night time part time.
The physical challenges returned whereby my hips started hurting so that by January 2018 and 3 ER visits later, I was diagnosed with congenital hip dysplasia and severe hip arthritis.
Yoga served me well for many years, but it was time to end the chronic pain cycle.
May 2018 Right hip was replaced.
May 28 2019 Left hip replacement 8 days post -op today.
During my convalescence, I decided to learn a new modality along with yoga so that I can help others in the same situation as me.
I am off from teaching college until end of August and so I look forward to studying Pilates during this time and for the next year.
I will be the first bilateral hip replacement yoga teacher here in Florida, and I do look forward to returning to my private medical yoga practice and serenity now yoga group clients hopefully by mid or end of July 2019.
That’s all about me!
