When I first went along to one of Brigitte’s classes I had absolutely no idea what I was letting myself in for. I was somewhat sceptical and not just a little apprehensive. However, Brigitte’s such a great tutor. She makes everything fall into place so effortlessly – helping even a real novice like me assume positions that I’d never ever dreamed of. At times I still can’t quite understand why I’d even want to. All I know is that, with Brigitte’s encouragement, I do (even if, I have to admit, its not always with the greatest of success). But it’s not the physical side of things that keeps me going back for more. Precisely what it is, I don’t yet really know. Maybe it’s to do with the feeling that with Brigitte’s help I’m finally learning to be at peace with myself and the world around me. The one thing I am certain about though is that from the moment I sit on my mat at the beginning of each session I feel privileged simply to be a part of it.
