From practice to purpose. My yoga journey started as a ‘stretch’ to accommodate my hectic gym training, little did I know it was the beginning of a true sense of purpose. This ‘stretch’ began to feel amazing in my body, I also enjoyed the social aspect of catching up with mates before and after class! I began to notice when I didn’t get my yoga fix in.
Indonesia, being a true healing place for me, I flew over to immerse myself in all the yoga learnings. I met some amazing souls, learnt to surf and absolutely loved my time, I felt at home within myself. I could feel the more I practiced, the more calm my mind felt. The chatter and negative thoughts began to subside. My practice turned more inward rather than just being a physical movement, I could see the benefits of breathwork and understanding why.
Yoga is much more than exercise or a way to calm the mind. It is a way of life. Building awareness, trusting and being able to reach inside for happiness allows us to respond, not react. It allows us to breathe. My dream is to make yoga accessible for everyone to include yoga in their life, to share my knowledge to help everyBODY create a life they love. I believe yoga has the ability and power to heal and transform. Understanding your body and its capabilities builds power, flexibility and confidence in oneself, proving individual identity and a way to move forward. It builds purpose.
For me I must love what I do each day, running retreats and seeing the transformations – yoga is huge part of this. Teaching for over 6 years with a balance of Yang and Yin style practice to ensure the body and mind are both flexible and strong.
Completing my 200 and then 300 Hours immersed on the island of Bali with Mathieu Boldron, a mixture of Vinyasa, Power, Hatha & Yin. This changed the way to look at the body, to change your perspective. Embodying all aspects to create a balanced practice.
