“Yoga found me 6 years ago. At the time, I was high on fitness and trained 6 days a week including running, cycling and high-impact fitness classes. I thought I’d been lucky and had avoided injury until I reached 40 years old. A running accident resulted in a twisted and tilted pelvis which gave me lower back, hip pain and sciatica. A weights class gave me a neck injury which resulted in constant pain and regular migraines. At a similar time, I began fertility treatment – this intrusive treatment, along with my addiction for high-impact training, meant I had to take my foot off the accelerator and start to listen to my body. My body was telling me to slow down and look after myself. Yoga taught me to breathe again and take quality time out for me. Forrest Yoga, specifically, taught me the poses to manage my own pain and injuries.
It has changed my life; so much so, that I want to share it with others and help them to heal.”
