The simple practice of turning up for Yoga classes in my earlier darkened days of midlife depression, adrenal fatigue and then menopause made these ailments and experiences bearable for me, allowing me to heal and transform. With increased balance and alignment, the aches and pains have dissipated and I feel alert and fluid, and my daily chores are done with ease. I know I will continue with my work and hobbies of gardening, tennis, golf and hiking well into my senior years as I continue to live independently. I am deeply grateful for the ways in which yoga has enriched my life beyond building strength and flexibility; yoga has also wound its way into all aspects of my life. I am a graduate of The Bhaktishop Yoga School 2015.
