Hi my name is Jean and I live in Harrogate. I’ve been attending the yoga sessions for 4 years and I really love coming along.
Yoga helps me with my breathing and the movement helps with my arthritis and my balance.
When I first came along to the Yorkshire Yoga session I felt awful but I went along with a friend and really enjoyed it. The sessions are really fun and I’ve made friends and I enjoy mixing with other people – they are a great group of girls!
The physical exercise is good for me but meeting up with other people is nice. I try some of the exercises at home – sometimes whilst watching the TV. It’s good for my joints and keeping mobility levels good.
At the end of a session you feel great – sometimes I ache a bit but that means I must be doing something right! I’m 76 years old and I think anyone can really benefit from Yoga. I’d encourage anyone to come and try it out – its fun and that’s what its all about.
