Yoga Lessons

Oona Giesen, who had just begun yoga lessons on the island this winter, was recently involved in a serious accident when her car skidded on the slippery road. She was taken to hospital (KAT) in Athens for major surgery, having suffered a collapsed lung and broken her back in 4 places, as well as a number of ribs. Initially doctors thought that she would not walk again, but as there was no nerve damage (they attribute this to her years of practicing yoga) she has made what they consider quite miraculous progress so far and they are now confident that she will fully recover. She hopes to leave the hospital in early November, plans to spend some time convalescing in Holland and will let everyone know when she is back at home on Paros so that lessons can continue. We all wish her a very speedy recovery.
