Yogi of the Month ~ Helena Pittman

How long have you been practicing?   

3 weeks

Any advice on how to make time for practice with a busy work/family schedule? 

I’m retired so it helps. Yoga is a part of my schedule now.

Describe your yoga practice in one word: Novice

How does your yoga practice benefit your other passions/hobbies? 

Relieves pain in shoulder, better sleep (compared to no sleep for 30 years!)

Why did you start practicing yoga? 

My daughter’s enthusiasm inspired me to take it up.  She made me feel I could participate because of the many ages, body types, & physical abilities she sees on a daily basis. And she was right!

How does yoga impact your everyday life?

I’m surprised and inspired by taking on this new endeavor, meaning that other activities I didn’t think I could do I might be willing to try now.

What misconceptions about yoga, if any, were changed after you started practicing? 

I didn’t know what yoga was beyond all the complicated poses shown on social media, or why anyone would want to do them in the first place. It’s so much more! You don’t have to look a certain way or be a certain age to do it-anyone can do yoga!  Just do what you can and breathe! And you don’t have to wear a bikini ;)
