My love for yoga began as a teenager whilst delving into my Nan’s old yoga books. It was initially the spiritual and philosophical aspects of this mysterious discipline that intrigued me. I made some attempts at the physical postures, but it wasn’t until a few years later in 1998 that I attended my first ashtanga yoga class. I quickly became aware of the physical benefits of the practice. As someone who has always liked to keep fit, yoga satisfied my need for a good workout and my body became stronger and more flexible. The challenge and the thrill of getting into new postures was enough to keep me returning to my mat each week. I developed a deeper understanding of the significance of the breath and soon became aware of a sense of mental wellbeing during and after my practice. My mind felt still, calm and clear. Twenty years on I have an even greater appreciation of how yoga has helped navigate me through everyday stresses as well as more challenging times in life, not to mention heighten my experience of the good times! It has become the tonic for so many aspects of my physical and mental wellbeing.
I feel very blessed to be able to share my love of yoga in a teaching capacity and give others the opportunity to experience the many benefits of the practice for themselves.
