Deepika Mehta‘s story tells of the triumph over trauma. She suffered a serious rock climbing accident in her early twenties that left her immobile for two years. During this time she became intrigued by the power of positive thinking, which eventually led her to the healing practice of yoga.

She supplements this with self-expressive dance and explains how the two work together to keep her body balanced in the inspirational interview below:

Daylesford

Daylesford has it all: a shop that sells everything from farm-fresh food to beautiful homeware, a holistic spa and a restaurant serving sustainable produce. Its about an hours drive from London, making it the perfect escape from the city.

I opted for a selection of salads – super greens, heritage beet slaw and toasted grains. It tasted so fresh, like it had just been picked from a farm – oh wait..

Lost Love

When you killed me

It was silent.

 

I stood before you

Speechless

Staring

At the heart you held in your hand

Still beating

Under those dead eyes

That mirror mine.

 

The moment lingers

Like your

‘Lost Love’

Where did you lose it,

Exactly?

Was it in my eyes?

Did the laser-light of my devotion

Blind you?

 

We laugh

And throw my heart

All over the floor

Walls

Blood splattered everywhere

Like we care!
