I’ve had back trouble for more than 10 years. I’ve had two operations, the most recent about six and a half years ago. I’d pretty much given up on living a pain-free life and I’ve been taking a fairly low dose of painkillers almost continuously throughout this time. I joined one of your beginner classes and was made to feel very welcome. I enjoy the class and feel I’ve made some good progress. My flexibility will never be absolute, although it is much improved, and I will continue to struggle with some balances and stretches. But best of all, I’ve managed to come off my painkillers and now, with effort put into keeping my back supple and strong, I’m feeling much more confident about the future. Thanks Diana, for all you have done. I can honestly say I am truly seeing, and feeling, the benefits!
