“The main reason I joined the course was to see if I could learn to relax, as there was always some part of me that was tense and ready for action, whether I was reading a book, writing a letter, talking to a friend or just sitting in a room. I am now learning to dispel the stress and am learning to relax my mind and body, instead of living the flight or fight phase that I have lived with all my life.”
