I started practicing Yoga 15 years ago. I was fortunate to have a positive and enjoyable experience in my first yoga class at my local gym. It made me feel great and I knew it was the right practice for me.
I practiced Yoga with many different teachers exploring some of the different styles of teaching/schools, including Ashtanga, and Iyengar, with primary influence of Hatha Yoga.
As a teacher and as a student, Yoga is the complete support for all physical and mental aspects of my life.
My thirst for more knowledge continued and I decided in 2014 to do a foundation course to enable me to teach. I wanted to share the benefits I was experiencing to others.
I found it exciting that anyone, regardless of age, sex, and fitness level, can hugely benefit from such a practice.
Whilst carrying out a foundation course in 2014 followed by a 2 year diploma course with the ‘British Wheel Of Yoga’, I started teaching Yoga to friends and family.
Once qualified on 2017 I joined ‘CIMSPA’ (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) and then proudly I started to run regular classes and workshops to the public.
I found the feedback from my students genuinely humbling as my goal has always been for my classes to be welcoming and rewarding. That alone makes the 3 years of discipline, dedicated practice, and studying hard, well worth it.
My approach to teaching is designed around overall well-being with the individuals’ need in mind, so all can enjoy the benefits of the practice and have fun.
If you wanted to try a yoga class but you think you are not fit and supple enough, or have not yet plucked up the courage… give it a go you might surprise yourself and fall in love with it too.
