What happens when you stand on your mat and wait for the present moment to find you? How do you find time to do this in busy life? And how might that simple practice transform your life?

Listen to my podcast with menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson
Lucy Holtom is a yoga teacher who works closely with Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre. Lucy runs 'Living Your Yoga' and her classes encourage attendees to take time to connect with their inner world through ancient Yogic practices.
These practices include co-ordinating the breath with movement; attention to alignment; seeking focus and balance; and finding comfort in challenging the body to open and release the accumulation of tension from life’s day-to-day habits.
In this episode, Lucy talks to Dr Newson all about how yoga can nourish, restore and release physical, mental and emotional constraints, whilst building inner strength and confidence.
