Esther Nagle has spent much of her life deep in shame, unhappiness and self sabotage, with two decades of addiction to smoking, drinking, drugs and misery behind her. In 2014, after a breakdown the previous year, she discovered that there was more to Yoga than she realised when she trained to become a teacher.
During this time, she learned to breathe properly, and realised just how healing and powerful Yoga truly is. Feeling reborn, she let go of her addictions and stepped into a new life of health, happiness and love. Esther wants to help women to reduce stress in the workplace, to develop resilience and inner strength so that they can turn to themselves, not wine, when life gets stressful.
She is the author of Bent Back into Shape, Beating Addiction Through Yoga (http://balanceandbreathe.co.uk/bentback), is a passionate and inspiring public speaker, and she writes often on her blog, http://balanceandbreathe.co.uk/blog
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
