My yoga journey began with my love for my horses, I would ride everyday if I could, competing in Cross Country Events when time and money allowed. As my life evolved and having a love of the Human Body, I trained and became a nurse, grew up a little, became a wife and mother, ran a family business and then began to notice niggles. Niggles became stress and pain in my lower back, a circle that I lived with for some time, all of which I just put down to getting a bit older with life taking its toll, eventually my Chiropractor at the time suggested I consider taking up yoga to help with the pain.
I, like many others thought that it would be a purely physical exercise, how wrong I was. There was the physical side, the breath work, the meditation a practice which considered the whole body. I would love to say I took it all on board and was an immediate convert. That is not the case. I dipped in and out for some time.
In 2008 my Stress and Anxiety resurfaced, I gained weight and my back pain returned. I turned to Yoga as a release. I found a new teacher, began to practice more regularly. Very quickly my back pain began to ease, but the most startling factor which has changed my life was that after a few months I felt mentally stronger and better able to cope. This was when I decided to train to become a Yoga Teacher to help others and my journey along this path began.
I’ve found that over time my Teaching has evolved and find that more and more that I’m helping others who are in a similar situation as I was, suffering from Stress and Anxiety. Seeing someone who feels relaxed and rejuvenated at the end of a practice makes my day.
