Yoga Over 45

Feel fitter, stronger, for longer

My mum used to say: It doesn't matter how much money you have - without your health you have nothing.

The older I get - the more I really understand that!

I began teaching yoga in my twenties - after a teacher training course which got me totally hooked on the benefits. I saw people on that programme who were finding it a really useful practice for relieving conditions such as arthritis and stress as well as building strength and flexibility and controlling weight. As someone who had  struggled with weight gain and a low self-esteem right through my teens, yoga seemed to have a far more positive effect on me than the gym attendance. I LOVED that programme.

I taught for 5 years, and then stopped teaching due to other work commitments - but even with a busy career and two children, yoga still remained part of my life and my own fitness regime. Yes - there were some periods when it seemed relegated to the back burner, but never for long - and over the last 20 years I have continued to practise in my own home.

Every day we see stories of the increasing elderly population and the increased risk of poor health associated with age. I believe yoga can be one of the most powerful ways of helping us to remain stronger and healthier, for longer.

I want to grow old - but not infirm; don't we all?

I want to make my second half century count - and if I can help others to do the same that seems like a good way to spend my time. 

I hope you join the movement!
