Her name is Suza Francina, and I am enormously lucky to have found her. She’s been teaching Iyengar yoga for some thirty years now, and is probably one of the best instructors in the world.
I was only thirty when I first began to suffer from sacroiliac pain. I used to take nine Advil a day, and was always in pain. I lived for my appointments with the chiropractor and the massage therapist. And they kept telling me how I needed to take up yoga.
Now, I am congenitally clumsy. Embarrassingly so. No way was I going to go to any class where I would be invited to stand on my head.
