Having just weathered a second, gruelling six month round of chemotherapy, whilst maintaining a full-time job and dependent children, I was physically and emotionally exhausted and wanted to find something to slowly rebuild my general wellbeing and strength, which I have been able to do through private yoga sessions with Donna at Yoga & Healing.
Donna has a deep understanding of what it is like to live with cancer and in a few short weeks, with her relaxed, gentle manner and expertise, has helped me to learn to allow myself to acknowledge the toll it has taken on my mental and physical strength, to take time-out of my day and really focus only on what my mind and body needs, rather than constantly focussing on the wants and needs of others.
The private meditation and yoga sessions with Donna are one of the highlights of my week and have enabled me to reconnect with myself in my own time and at my own pace and really focus on the inner me. I am then able to carry on that process through the week, aided by the free meditation sessions accessible through the Yoga & Healing website.
