At the beginning of 2013 – spurred on by the knowledge that I was entering my 50th year, and confronting the intimate reality that we are all mortal, due to the passing of my Mum – I decided I needed to do something to improve my health & wellbeing, and to proactively go about the business of doing what I could to extend my time here on Earth.
So, I began my yoga practice.
I started to go to a local yoga class, 6.30 am, 3 times a week, and immediately fell in love with it.
Nearly ten months in, I’m still enthusiastic; the class is reduced from 3 to 2 days, but I want to be there as often as I can manage because I have felt the benefit. I’m calmer and more chilled than ever. I’m ever so slightly more flexible, and I feel this is something for the long haul.
