Being fifty – feeling thirty


Lee Bal

My yoga journey began as my health had gone downhill in July 2013. After having to leave a job I loved, endless doctors’ visits (none could help), I needed something to help get me moving and give me motivation to get up and go. As soon as I found Bettina on google, I knew this was the place for me.
For someone who occasionally used a treadmill for exercise I was very surprised that I was able to do a lot of the yoga poses at the first lesson. I had the best night sleep in ages from that lesson. Learning different breathing techniques and meditation has helped me to assist with panic attacks that I have had for 14 years. I can now drive & be outside my comfort zone.
I love the fact that you don’t know what poses you will be doing each lesson. In each lesson you learn something new and helpful for different ailments you may have which you can use in your home yoga practice.
Bettina is a loving, caring and fun teacher. I love my Thursday morning class (you can have a laugh but still be serious). I have met some lovely people through coming to Bettina’s classes.
I may be 50 but feel about 30. Yoga has improved my mind, body and soul.
