The knee operation was scheduled for November 2017. The pre-operative leg and knee exercises that were recommended by the surgery did me more harm than good and resulted in unnecessary pain. So I stopped doing them. Inflammation was another problem.Two friends, one with a bad back, the other who had a badly broken arm 2 years ago, told me that they both have noticeable physical benefits from regularly having done professionally-taught yoga for the last 6 months. I was sceptical because I had always though of yoga as being mystical and dubious. The friends, Sydney based, arranged that I have a one-on-one introductory session with their teacher. This was an eye opener - above all, I realised that yoga is a way to become supple and stay flexible without pain. My previous failing had been to attempt floor exercises that were self imposed and self improvised, and which were executed too vigorously and too rapidly. They were derived from my previous attendances at a gym.I realised in that first yoga session that the calmness, the time tested positions/exercises/moves, and the focused breathing is the fundamental difference between “do it yourself “ and professional yoga instruction. The breathing slowed the pace, set the duration of each exercises, and kept me calm and relaxed. The next day I felt good and looked for a yoga teacher closer to home. Milton Yoga Hub was recommended and I sought out Charms Baltis. My first 3 sessions, a week apart, were one-on-one, hour-long, beginners classes and I was hooked. My knee benefited as did my shoulder.I have since been to more beginners classes at Milton Yoga Hub and intend to continue doing at least one class a week under Charm’s professional instruction and guidance. Charms is experienced, is perceptive of my physical limits, and is very good at constructive advice. She ably corrects wrong moves, positions etc, tactfully. Aided by one anti-inflammatory tablet a day which helps me execute the yoga moves, exercises and poses, my feeling of suppleness and flexibility has improved, and (this is important) the pain in my knee has diminished to the extent that I am seriously considering cancelling my scheduled knee operation. I fact,I feel confident that I will do so at the end of September, provided I continue with the classes.Milton Yoga Hub and Charms Baltis have significantly aided my well being in a short time, and I appreciate and recommend them.John WilsonMollymook NSW1 September 2017.
