Garth McLean was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1996, and with that his life changed in an instant. Gone were the days of high-intensity exercise (he could barely balance on a bike, let alone get through an entire L.A. spin class) and upon the advice of his doctors, he went to a yoga class at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles. Within a couple of weeks, he noticed sensation return to his body as he learned to cultivate patience and respect for it in order to embark on a healing and a new way of living.

Inspired by what yoga could do for him, Garth decided to become a yoga teacher and share his experience with others coping with diseases like Parkinson’s, epilepsy and muscular dystrophy. A level 3 certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, Garth has written a book called “Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis,” and continues to find inspiration from his teachers, the greatest of whom was MS itself.

Garth will be teaching a workshop at triyoga on 27 + 28 March available for booking here.
