“I took the yoga introduction class with Michelle today and it really exceeded my expectations.
I’d never tried yoga before, and was worried how much I would be able to do due to my MS.
I didn’t have to worry at all!

She made me feel immediately welcome, and as it was quite a small class which made it a lot more personal. She explained about the practice of yoga in itself, but also of the different poses and how it all connects was very clear and easy to understand and I feel that I learnt a lot.
To my surprise I actually managed to do most of the poses and I felt quite proud of myself for it! 
I’m definitely signing up for more classes and I can’t wait for my next one!”
