Garth McLean was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1996, and with that his life changed in an instant.
Gone were the days of high-intensity exercise, and upon the advice of his doctor, he went to a yoga class. As it happened, an Iyengar Yoga one. Within a couple weeks, he noticed sensation return to his body and he learned to cultivate patience and respect for it, and so embarked on a new way of living.
Inspired by what yoga did for him and could do for others, Garth became a yoga teacher and began teaching others living with diseases like Parkinson’s, epilepsy, and muscular dystrophy. A level 3 certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, Garth continues to find inspiration from his teachers, the greatest of whom is MS itself.
