Yesterday in sunny Manchester, I passed my Junior Intermediate level three assessment and I am very happy and relieved. I started Introductory training in 1996, passed that in 1998, and started Junior Intermediate training in 2000. So it has taken me twelve years to pass those three levels. During which time I have struggled and learnt a lot! It is not about the more elaborate poses I can now teach. For me it’s been about learning the healthy action for the body. I may not be an ex-gymnast or an ex-dancer, my poses may not seem as graceful to observe, but I am happy that I have learnt the healthy way for me to work.
