I began trying to meditate when I was about 17 years old, but I didn’t really know what I was doing. I would sit on my bedroom floor and try to clear my mind… but it never worked. I really learned the principles of meditation when I attended an 8-week course about five years ago, and have been practising ever since.

As time went on, going to physiotherapy, developing strength again, I decided to give yoga a try. I fell in love; head over heels (kind of like a yoga position) in love.
