september 2008 yoga survey results

Top answers to survey question "Can yoga change your life?" in our October 2008 survey

"YES, I became a Tatty Bumpkin Toddler Yoga teacher after the birth of my son 3 years ago and now teach a group of babies and toddlers yoga every Friday morning and also special workshops. I love it and am totally inspired by 10 to 12 little people all doing Sun Salutation and Downward dog. My son is just wonderful at demonstrating all the moves and so flexible, as he slowly lifts his foot up to his ear and talks in his telephone pose. I am totally converted to the love and calm it brings and most of all the smiles giggles and fun the class delivers."

"Absolutely! 7 years ago I was stressed out in the city, smoking & drinking. Then I discovered yoga. 7 years on and I have a whole new life. My stress levels have dropped dramatically. I have dropped a dress size and I have learnt to let go of the things that were dragging me down. Oh yeah, and I am now a yoga teacher, helping others to get fit, be happy and enjoy a stress-less life."

"Sure can! After many sports injuries I have found that yoga keeps my core strength enabling me to play tennis & ride without injuring myself further!"
