“Hi, I’m Siobhan Moylan. I first came to yoga in 2001 following a fairly traumatic car accident which left me with permanent lung damage.
In the beginning I wanted to improve my lung capacity and maybe tone up my body a bit! I was really surprised at how difficult yoga was for me in the beginning.
I was very tight and unfit and not very flexible! And I hated Savasana. That few minutes at the end of the class I dreaded most.
A quiet time for the mind to race, a time when I could be doing something more productive.
Thankfully the changes came quite quickly. The lung capacity improved dramatically (I haven’t had a chest infection in 18 years!) I got fitter and stronger.
But mentally was where the change really happened. I began to notice that I was becoming less stressed, calmer, more in control of my emotions. And one day I noticed that I was no longer dreading Savasana!
I was looking forward to that little time at the end of the class where I could just let go, soften and surrender.
