Hi, I'm Helen, a Senior III Iyengar yoga teacher

"You'll be in a wheelchair in 3 years"

 

That's what the consultant said when I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, a debilitating, incredibly painful disease that attacks the joints.

I had a young daughter, a full-time job as a school teacher, evening work tutoring maths and teaching yoga. My life was already hectic and full-on juggling.

How on earth was I going to cope? It might be hard to believe when you see my photos now, but at the time I couldn't even lift my arms above my head and my seven year old had to dress me.

From bedridden to senior teacher

Throughout all the various drugs I was put on, I always went back to my yoga, even if I sometimes had to do the poses through my imagination while bedridden.

I went on to study Iyengar yoga in India with my teacher, BKS Iyengar, who is credited with bringing yoga to the west. And I was even lucky enough to be taught by him 1-2-1.

International teaching experience

Over the years I have been invited to teach workshops and assess throughout Europe. And I lost count of my visits to study in India after my 40th trip.

Online yoga classes for busy working women

As a life-long feminist, I've been inspired by all the women in the online space – my daughter included – breaking through the glass ceiling and having the careers they deserve.

I decided to take my classes online so I could let even more women experience the life-changing benefits of Iyengar yoga and find a way out of their aches and pains.
