One pair of leggings and a Long Covid lifeline
I am a yoga teacher so I live in yoga leggings. I designed my first pair of leggings because I wanted unique leggings with my business name on them.
They were just for me but I received lots of complements so I considered creating more designs. I was too busy at the time but fast-forward about a year and here I am 12 weeks into Long Covid with no idea when I’ll be back to normal. I went from teaching sweaty Vinyasa Yoga classes to struggling with a 2 metre walk from the bed to the bathroom. Thankfully, I can now walk short distances but every outing requires much recovery.
There are, however, only so many hours a creative, active person can spend in bed; and focusing continually on my struggle to breathe, move and function was really getting me down. So while I rested in bed I started designing more leggings for fun, and now I have a little collection.
Creating these bright leggings has been so helpful to my mental health during this tough time. I hope you find my designs as uplifting as I do. When you buy my leggings...
- You are supporting a Covid Long-Hauler and her family.
- You are supporting mental health.
- You are supporting an Edinburgh-based small business.
Thank you for your support.
P.S. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to return to teaching yoga but if you’d like to learn more about my classes and join the waiting list, please visit http://twistandblissyoga.com.
