Chorley Guardian – Broken Back to Yoga Teacher – June 2008


Broken Back To Yoga Teacher!

Janet Broughton from Eccleston has turned a disaster to a success, less than 5 yrs after breaking her back in a horse riding accident in the mountains of Italy Janet has now qualified as a Yoga teacher yet the hospital consultant had told her she would be in pain for life.
“14 months after the accident I walked with a stoop and took pain killers 3 or 4 times a day, no more high heels or dancing for me” It was at this point that the hospital had declared there was nothing more they could do. Janet then turned to Holistic Therapies and after one treatment of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) she was immediately able to stop taking painkillers and walk upright once more.
“I gradually increased my strength and confidence with EFT, Yoga and Reiki Healing, and knew I had to use my teaching experience and skills to introduce a wider audience to these wonderful techniques and practices. Therefore over the last 3 years I have become a qualified Life Coach, Advanced Practitioner and Trainer of EFT, Reiki Master Practitioner, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, Colour Psychologist and now a Yoga Teacher. I have a naturally positive approach to life so when I broke my back I simply said tell me what to do and I’ll get better, a year later one friend told me that when she first saw me 3 days after the accident she thought it was the end of me and I would never work again.
I hope my story encourages other people to see that no matter how bad things get there is always a solution.
