 "Helena's Yoga for mental health course was fabulous, so gently and compassionately taught. I gained much from attending. Specifically the course opened up new, more subtle and thoughtful ways to approach my yoga practice to  enable it to be truly my personal practice, responsive to my life and circumstances in the moment."
