Jean first started yoga after seeing an advert in her local area. She credits yoga with changing her life, saying that it has “helped cure aches and pains.”
Aside from easing pain, Jean also says the yoga has helped her posture, balance, concentration, flexibility and stamina. Attending regular classes also means Jean has made some great friends.
According to Jean’s yoga instructor, Christine, Jean is a role model for others – proving to everyone that if she can do it, so can they.
Jean added that it’s about doing what you can, “A few years ago, I could do all the handstands and everything but I have to stop doing those now due to my blood pressure, but yoga has helped me more than anything so I think I can continue for a little longer.”Happy birthday Jean!”
