Following 4 operations on my left knee after a serious injury playing football, it was found that my left leg was now shorter than my right leg. As a result, normal walking movement twisted my hips and resulted in constant lower back pain. I had to wear an insert in my left shoe with a 9mm platform to rectify the situation.
Within 6 months of taking up Iyengar Yoga my insert platform was reduced to 3mm. With a continual improvement, it is likely that at some point in the future I will not have to wear an insert at all.
Very friendly people, its nice to find a studio for yoga, not just a village hall. Well equipped and as i had not been doing yoga for a while, I found that it was very informative and helpful. I really enjoyed the whole experience.
I limped in to my first yoga class with Lin a week after my 60th birthday. I was very stiff and suffering fairly constant hip and knee pain and so feared that it was all downhill from here. I hoped yoga would help stop the rot, but I never imagined it would make such a difference.
At first I worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up as I was a good deal older than most of the students. However, I soon realized that Lin adapted each pose to the ability of the student. She has an uncanny ability to see when you are struggling and need help – or indeed when to push you if you are not actually realizing your potential.
Now, 6 years on, I am stronger and more supple than I have ever been and the slimmest I have been in over a decade – all while making new friends and having fun!
After trying all sorts of yoga classes over the years, I went to an Iyengar yoga class run by Lin about 5 years ago. It was exactly what I had been looking for but never found in other schools of yoga taught in the UK! For a start, I have arthritis in my knees and back problems which had caused difficulties for me in other yoga classes. Iyengar yoga (and Lin's training in remedial yoga) has made a huge improvement to my
mobility. Apart from this, I like the emphasis on yoga as a philosophy and a mental as well as a physical discipline which Iyengar yoga provides. And I've made some really good friends!
