Dear Yogi,

Are you overweight, out of shape and new to yoga? You are not a healthy person and you don’t like working out? Do you think that yoga is not meant for a 240 pound over-weight new mom trying to get back in shape? You tried all the different kinds of diets but it just didn’t work out for you? Are you a yoga beginner seeking a no-nonsense approach to yoga?

And wouldn’t you like to change your diet and lose 42lbs? Wouldn’t you like to sleep better, breathe easier with much less or no snoring? Wouldn’t you want to walk up and down stairs without your knees complaining, and just overall feel better and accomplish more each day? Wouldn’t you want to start smiling again and find what feels good?

Then Radical Healing, Radical Transformation™ gets yoga to click for you.

It was on 19 July 2014 that she first invited me to her home to get a better understanding of yoga. I met her through another client of mine. She is very receptive and quickly understood what yoga is all about. Our sessions were off and on, but I always knew that yoga is for her.

She is one of my bigger clients weighing 129kg at a height of 180cm.

When she signed up for RHRT™ I was actually surprised. I didn’t think she was ready for this commitment. But she wanted in. Why?

She wrote: ”[…] because I find that yoga has given me a lot more confidence that I can change my life style with consistency. Each time I take a class I feel more connected to myself. It confirms that with small focused steps towards the goal I set I will eventually get there and also if I fall off I can go back. Yoga has helped me in every aspect of my life because I am more conscious of how I move. Thank you. Working with you has been a real gift.”

I think the biggest frustration is when we can’t go deep enough. A single private or group class often doesn’t allow enough space to go deeper and explain things further.

I must admit that going exclusive really works for me and the ones that sign up. Having discovered a new way to help you out on your journey to develop your personal yoga practice allows me to spend more time with fewer clients. This exclusive approach offers space for radical healing.

What has helped me assist this particular client even better than before the program is that I had the space to thoroughly assess her and understand the constitution of her body. This knowledge changed our work-out routine entirely. I realized that she needed much more strength in certain muscle groups than flexibility in others.

Already in the third session I noticed how strong she had become. It was amazing. I saw immediate results: She performed the Standing Half Moon Pose, an intermediate/advanced pose, where you stand on one leg and lift the other one while at least five fingers stay on the ground.

In the fifth session I noticed that her abs had gotten much stronger. And in the seventh class it was obvious. I actually had to take a second look to make sure I wasn’t making it up.

I could see her waistline! In fact, I didn’t understand what had happened. But she looked awesome. Even her face started to change. I mentioned it to her and she said: “I know!!!”

And she went on: How people mentioned to her that she lost. And that they thought it came from inside. That she herself when looking in the mirror thought she looked hot. And how it has changed the dynamics in her house.

Even her daughter who normally doesn’t have a very good posture now adjusts how she stands and tries not to hunch whenever she sees her mum standing properly. And her husband clearly likes what he sees.

I listened and marvelled.

We both knew that her progress was not due to an improved diet. But we are working on it.

Healing is an inside job. And yoga helps! It takes time. I am here to help.

What about you? Are you ready for radical change? What do you have to lose except your weight?
