An Interview with Sigita Beliunaite
Sigita is one of our pair of Lithuanian therapists at the Massage Centre. She is close with her family, and often shares pictures of her helping out on her parents’ farm with brothers when she comes back from visits home. She admits that the pace of life on the farm is much slower, calmer and peaceful than being in London. This is one realization that helped her to find yoga. Being a massage therapist and working to help reduce stress and tension in her clients, Sigita was left wanting that for herself as well. She has been practicing yoga now for over a year, and really believes in the benefits from it. She goes to classes twice a week, and then practices at home once or twice further. Each practice lasts anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes, depending on how long she feels she needs to meditate along with it. Sigita had a shoulder injury that only got resolved with the slow stretching yoga gives. She also credits yoga with improving her posture, giving her strength, better breath control and more mental balance.
