Welcome to my brand new blog. My name is Anne Marie Tovey and I'm the founder of Ageless Yoga. It all started in October 2017 when my life completely changed as my husband Peter passed away ...
Through Ageless-Yoga, I help anyone who wants to return to a joyful place and who understands life is a journey to be enjoyed to the fullest!

Knowing me and my personality type, Peter made me promise not to lock myself away and bury my head in the sand, but to continue with my life. This I did, but I was unable to grieve because the pain was unbearable.
In a state of numbness and not experiencing any joy, at my yoga class one day, a teacher mentioned that suppressing grief meant the suppression of all other emotions too. The penny dropped, and I slowly started to allow myself to experience the pain of my loss!
Slowly, but surely, the joy in little things started returning. Although I have done yoga for many years, it was through teacher training that I started building physical strength which led to me re-building my mental strength and with it the healing of the emotional trauma. It is a long and slow process, but yoga really does work.
It is through my personal experience with yoga, that I want to help others who find themselves in a state of numbness and despair where they are unable to visualise a happy future for themselves, to do the same.
Grief can be caused by the loss of many things, not just a loved one. It can be the loss of a relationship, a pet, a job, natural life changes such as menopause or just the inability to visualise a new beginning. I know how yoga can help, even if you have not been to a class before or you think it is only for young, flexible bodies.
"Yoga is for anyone who wants to start the journey!"
I love to help anyone who wants to return to a joyful place and who understands life is a journey to be enjoyed to the fullest. To do so we need to keep our bodies and minds as strong and healthy as we possibly can. Patience, understanding and support are what I offer on this journey to a joyful, happy place.
All it takes from you is the desire and commitment to take the first steps.
Until next time ...
