I recently interviewed Angela 6 years after taking lessons and asked her about the long term benefits:
“I am not in pain everyday like I was and I didn’t know what to do about it. If you don’t know what you are doing wrong you don’t know how to fix it.
It might be a cliché but “ more haste, less speed” is perfect for this situation. – if you overdo it you suffer , by focussing on your awareness in advance you don’t hurt yourself.
I am not frightened now – it gives you confidence through knowledge.
Three years after having had individual lessons Angela came to an Introductory Group Class I was running. “It was a great refresher, I realised I had forgotten quite a lot I had learnt and learnt from observing others what I didn’t know about. It was great re-inforce what I already knew.”
“It’s in your head and your body, only you can make the changes”
