The marathon runner and yoga teacher who won £10m in a charity auction has been teaching yoga for two weeks in her own home.
Shauna Pugh and her husband Simon were inspired by a programme of yoga sessions that were offered to those who had been in intensive care for six months.
Mr Pugh, who was diagnosed with cancer, was one of a group of volunteers who completed the programme and became part of a team of yoga teachers.
The team, which was named The First Family, has been in a training camp since February and Mr Pugh is one of the first to start her own session.
Ms Pugh said she had no prior experience with yoga, but was looking forward to teaching the class. “
I love being in the room with people, I love the energy of it, I like it so much, I am just so thankful to have this experience with the first family.”

“The whole idea of it was to train people, to make them stronger and healthier,” she said.
Mr and Ms PUGH will also be training other people who have been in hospital with cancer to get them back into their normal activities, including running, swimming, cycling, gardening and swimming. “
So this was a really exciting opportunity to work with people with cancer.”

They will be using yoga mats to build up their core strength and flexibility.
Ms Pough said: ‘I’m just so excited to be here, to be doing the classes, to see everyone coming in.
“There is no other way to train in this moment of time.”
I’m so thankful for the support I have from all of the people that are here, they are just incredible.
“The First Family has also invited a few other people with serious illnesses to take part in the sessions.
A video posted on the charity’s website shows Mr and Ms Nittas being introduced to their new yoga instructor, who then introduces her to her family.
Mr Nitts has cancer and Ms Ough has lung cancer, and both are on chemotherapy.
They are expected to be fully recovered by the end of March.
