This week, Blom had the unique experience of practising yoga for the first time after a special visit from international spiritual teacher Swami Purnachaitanya of The Art of Living Foundation.
Purnachaitanya, who is a senior international trainer of The Art of Living Foundation in the Netherlands, offered to teach Blom and his wife Jeanette, 86, some simple yoga techniques to calm the mind and control Blom’s blood pressure.
As the couple learnt a simple pranayama, or breathing technique, and were guided through a meditation, Blom said he was in good spirits.
“My heart and body feel strong and my mind feels clear and calm. I like it,” said Blom.
