MY FIRST EVER YOGA CLASS WAS OVER 10 YEARS AGO.
More specifically, my first encounter of yoga was in a 40 degree windowless room, with carpeted floors, about 40 other people, and a distinct smell of sweaty trainers, damp cellar and moth ball aromas (memorable to say the least!). This is where it all began, the moment where I fell in love with yoga.
AS WELL AS TEACHING DYNAMIC CLASSES, I ENJOY TURNING IT DOWN A NOTCH WITH MORE MINDFUL, NURTURING PRACTICES TO HELP CALM, BALANCE AND NURTURE BOTH BODY AND MIND.
Although I still enjoy a strong practice and breaking a sweat, I have also grown to love and appreciate the mental benefits of yoga.
After realising yoga was so much more than just poses and breaking a sweat, I decided to pursue my yoga teacher training so that I could give to others what yoga has given to me.
As well as teaching yoga, I work in the corporate world, all too familiar with the stresses of meeting deadlines and juggling a work/life balance. And don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it! I love my job and I secretly strive off the fast paced nature of the corporate world. However, I am under no illusions that I can sustain it on my own.
Yoga has helped me stay balanced and grounded. Yoga has become my escape to help me come back to what really matters and slow me down. It has given me the tools to be present in the moment, see the beauty in what’s around me and joy in the smallest things. Most importantly, yoga helps me stay positive, healthy and happy. And happiness is the most important thing to me, to ensure I find it every day, and help pass happiness on to others.
