My name is Sheila Haswell and I run a yoga centre in High Wycombe. I am making contact because we have a visiting teacher from the US who is teaching workshops on MS and Yoga. He has MS himself, he only took to yoga after his diagnosis and he has made remarkable progress. I visited him when he was teaching in France as I also have a brother with MS, and I am very excited that he was able to include a visit to High Wycombe in his busy teaching schedule.
"Garth McLean is an Iyengar yoga teacher from the USA. An actor, Garth developed Multiple Sclerosis in 1996; this led him to yoga and to BKS Iyengar in Pune. Using yoga and diet he has learned how to stabilise his condition and to keep it in remission. Over the weekend of five 2 hour workshops Garth will give an overview of the condition and explain how yoga asanas benefit MS and other similar conditions. He will highlight the most beneficial postures, whilst covering all types of asanas including inversions. This weekend will be invaluable to MS sufferers and to yoga teachers but also to regular students who will undoubtedly find Garth’s teaching inspirational."
