Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Helen Garner – the one question I get asked quite a lot on Instagram is WHEN I moved to Africa… so I guess that is my first comment. I am African, born and bred – my children are 7th generation South African. I have lived and travelled the world, but I always come home to Africa. I was born and raised in a small coastal town on the Kwa-Zulu Natal north coast… and I live in an old historic farmhouse with my husband, 2 kids and 4 dogs. My favourite place to travel… anywhere where I can get in the sea and swim and freedive (lets also use the adjectives WARM and HOT here too… my African blood is thin and mainly anything under 24 degrees is sweater weather for me).
When did you discover your passion for yoga?
I always kind of could “do” yoga – my body understands the poses pretty well… but it wasn’t until I got really sick with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) that I was told I could no longer exercise. I was a competitive athlete most my life and I really enjoyed training and the discipline of that… so it was devastating. I quickly looked for something to do – and figured I’d do yoga for a bit – because it’s not like yoga is hard, right????????
I started practising in 2001 and my life as I knew it was never the same again.
