Hi I’m Jean and this is my Yoga Story…

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 – it’s fun and that’s what it’s all about.
