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 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.
Waiting at the spa
Lunch is included in the Haybarn Destress package (that also includes a facial or massage!)
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..
When you killed me
It was silent.
I stood before you
At the heart you held in your hand
Under those dead eyes
That mirror mine.
The moment lingers
Where did you lose it,
Was it in my eyes?
Did the laser-light of my devotion
And throw my heart
All over the floor
Blood splattered everywhere
Like we care!
