my heart is full of love to know others could care so much for someone they have never met
It is with utter openness and honestly that I say to you that Susannah’s yoga teachings taught me to entrust my body during pregnancy and labour. Then when I lost myself after becoming a parent the class helped me find my strength again. In mind as well as body. The relaxation and release of tension in my body grounds me. I feel the desperate clawing need for anything calm in my life leave willingly as peace takes over, assuring me of my capabilities as a woman, a parent and a useful being on this earth. I need this class to keep the balance in my life and am overwhelmed to find help while I am struggling. I am so grateful and thankful and my heart is full of love to know others could care so much for someone they have never met.
it means the world to me that this term is sorted
Yoga is a time when I can quiet my mind and go within. In a world that is so busy it’s important for me to be able to find some peace. I’m a single mum and a month and a half ago was involved in quite a serious road accident. Both combined have meant the last few weeks have been particularly challenging. I’ve used my yoga in this time to help heal my body and let my mind rest. This kind gift means I can continue this term – I’ve had a difficult few months and it means the world to me that this term is sorted xxxx
When I heard about the Yogi Godmother’s fund, I knew – on some level – that it was exactly what I needed, when I needed it
I applied for the Yogi Godmother’s fund when times were hard financially. I had spent all of my money on trying, in vain, to treat my dog’s sudden illness. In the grief that followed, I stopped doing anything and everything in terms of self-care and I felt my body getting stiffer and sorer. The less I cared for myself, the worse I felt… and so the cycle continued. I knew that something had to change but I didn’t have the money or inclination to sign up to a gym. I’d done some informal yoga in the past and always enjoyed moving my body in that way. When I heard about the Yogi Godmother’s fund, I knew – on some level – that it was exactly what I needed, when I needed it. It was totally out of character for me to apply for something like that – always believing there’s someone more deserving – but I’m so glad I did. Joining Susannah’s classes through Zoom for the past month has been really empowering for me and has been the steady start I needed to get myself moving again and to start prioritising my self-care. I’m so grateful for the Yogi Godmother and for Susannah and I look forward to continuing with the sessions now that I’m back on my feet again.
I could sign up guilt free if I didn’t make it every week, and when I do turn up it’s the best way to get out of my head and back to myself.
I attended Susannah’s pregnancy yoga class, but as a new mom committing to doing something so regularly for myself felt daunting, and I was worried about how many classes I would miss. The yogi godmothers’s help meant I could sign up guilt free if I didn’t make it every week, and when I do turn up it’s the best way to get out of my head and back to myself.
