How and when did you get into yoga?
I took my first class 2001, didn’t know very much about yoga but I had heard so many good things about it that I just had to give it a go. It was definitely different to all other forms of exercise I was used to, was this really going to give me the workout I was looking for, as that was the aim at that time. Shortly thereafter I moved to London, which is where my real yoga path started. I tried all different types of yoga; Sivananda, Classical Hatha, Vinyasa, Bikram yoga etc. It was only when I actually stepped up my practise that I started seeing all the amazing benefits that came with it; so much more than just a form of exercise. I went through some really stressful times while excelling my career in London within Finance, working long hours, studying at the same time, family, socialising, working out and much more, that I am quite certain it was my yoga practise that helped me stay steady and keep going. ‘It helped me find a balance, to de stress and find mental clarity’ in other words ‘Survive’. This is when I decided to change my life and gave up work and studies to go and become a yoga teacher. I have never looked back. Yoga today is so much more than just a physical exercise.
