Today is my annual visit to Garth McLean’s yoga class. His worldwide travels finally land in Manchester.
Based in the USA, Garth also offers local private instruction in the Los Angeles metro area.
He’s a senior certified Iyengar Yoga teacher (training under the personal tutelage of the late BKS Iyengar) and still studies annually with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.
Perhaps more impressively, he does all this whilst fighting Multiple Sclerosis.
Upon learning of his diagnosis in 1996, Garth was determined to get his MS symptoms in remission. He immediately took to the daily practice of Iyengar Yoga, heeding his neurologist’s advice to try it.
Garth’s dedication to self-healing has enabled him to successfully manage many symptoms of MS and keep his course of MS in remission without the conventional medicines prescribed for the condition.
As you can imagine, he’s a massive inspiration to me! I’ll report back.
