My yoga story started with a chance conversation at the dog park. After recounting my back and shoulder issues as the reason I no longer golfed a fellow dog walker mentioned his wife taught yoga and said he would get me a complimentary pass to try her class. The teacher was Diane, thank goodness it was a gentle class!!

The rest as they say is history, half way through the class I knew I had found what I was looking for. I signed up for the 30 day introductory trial and went a few days a week. The summer special came next and by the time summer was over I was a regular at least 5 days a week and I bought a monthly auto-renew membership which was a big commitment for me. That was 4 years ago. The journey from gentle yoga to Hatha to Fusion to Pilates has been life changing. My physical and mental wellbeing are the best they have ever been, my balance, my flexibility and my stamina constantly amaze my husband. I can help rake leaves, walk miles sightseeing in London and even golf if the mood takes me.

Why do I come back to Beyond day after day, because I found a community that supports and encourages each of us to be kind to ourselves and those around us. Teachers who share our triumphs when a pose previously unimaginable is now doable and sense when we are struggling and need an encouraging smile. The pleasure we all take in seeing each go from strength to strength. I know when I walk through the door in the morning I will be greeted with a smile by my friends and when asked how I am I can give the real answer because if I need support it will be offered.

Gossip Girl

For the record, sometimes I spend the first 20 minutes before I write a blog post like this...
*Am I really going to admit this publicly…
Well, apparently, I am. Friends, I am a gossip. I grew up in a big family in a small town, so while I perhaps come by it honestly, truthfully it isn’t something I always love about myself. Interestingly though, while researching this post, I learned (much to my relief and chagrin) that we are all are gossips, all of us. In fact, according to Psychology Today gossip is necessary, it is how we connect, learn to behave, and maintain...
