“Yoga therapy brought together two years of talking therapy for me. I have spent my entire life living in my head and in survival mode. I was unable to hear anything my body was telling me and it wasn’t until complete extremes, like a burnout, where I knew something was wrong but still pushed through because I wasn’t listening, that I knew I had to change.
After six weeks of working with Grainne I now have a mind body connection and I am able to understand what my body is telling me. It might be something simple like being able to acknowledge if I’m eating something that doesn’t make me feel good or something much bigger like knowing that I’m in a stressful situation and I need to take appropriate action.
The difference this has made in my life is unbelievable. I’ve always hated my because I felt no connection to it but that is no longer the case and I am so thankful for how I feel now. Working with Gráinne literally changed my life and I would recommend yoga therapy to everyone.
The breathing exercises Gráinne taught me were so powerful that they are now simply part of my morning routine and my body soon tells me if I skip them. Yoga therapy is a true gift to yourself.”
