I had a brain haemorrhage and a speech and language disability (aphasia), 25 years ago, aged nearly 29. As a result, I'm half paralysed down my right side and I have a blindspot on my affected side. About 7 years ago, I had a breakdown and I gained over 3 stone in weight. I had to go to a local neurological unit for 3 weeks because my mobility was very bad. I had private physiotherapy but last year, this stopped because the physiotherapy said that functionally there was nothing they could do and I was doing everything I could do.
Jay has been working with me for the last 7 months, on a one to one basis, each week and it has transformed my life! He focuses on what I can do, not what I can't do now and he's so positive about my abilities. As a consequence, I'm really motivated to work very hard and yoga, through Jay, has become a large and invigorating part of my life. I'm very disabled now (although Jay didn't say this), and I've got lots of challenges but, through Jay's work on me, I'm both more flexible and strong and my wellbeing is probably the best it has been since my brain haemorrhage. If you are keen and work hard, I would highly recommend Jay and he's holistic approach and we have lots of giggles too! Thank you Jay!
