A human doing yoga 1 (1)_edited.jpg

"My mind is race, race, racing when I get to class and then, I think, this is my chance, my time to actually relax and unwind and let everything go."

Posture: Low Lunge Twist

Sanskrit: Parivrtta Anjaneyasana

"I've got a wee sanctuary, my mat, my bolster, my bricks. I even have a sign that says Namaste."

Posture: Three-legged Downward Facing Dog

Sanskrit: Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana

"I thought, people will be looking at me. I'm older, I'm not as thin as some, I'm not as flexible as others. But I just love it for what I do. I do what I can do. There's always a modification for people of my age, my shape, my size. I don't see anybody else, I see my mat, I see you, and I listen. I try hard not to even look at the teacher, but just to be guided by the instructions. Your body allows you to do yoga in the way that you can do. You get a fantastic feeling after it."
