I was fortunate to discover Esther Myers and her lovely studio on Dupont St. in the 80’s. I came to yoga initially to ease my back pain which had been through tough times picking tobacco, building a cottage, moving rocks and acting like my body had no limitations. Learning about the spine, the benefits of stretching, and breathing techniques helped me through serious illnesses including cancer, a heart attack and the normal challenges of aging. Esther’s caring approach inspired me to become a yoga teacher and I had happy years teaching in a local seniors centre. At 97 I’m still able to get in and out of a car, and am grateful to Esther and her team for passing on their wisdom and love of yoga. We lost Esther too soon, but am delighted that her studio is still here and thanks to the great work of all that have kept her memory and teachings alive.
