We all come to yoga for different reasons. My particular reason, like many of you, was to alleviate pain. I had my first back surgery aged fifteen after spending a few months in a wheel chair. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and a good few surgeries later, I now have metal rods and plates in my lumber spine, which were needed to straighten a scoliosis and to fix an anterior fusion. My spinal surgeon recommended yoga to me and I quickly fell in love with it.
It turns out that everything people say about yoga is true!
Yoga really is a full mind body experience.
I came away from the first class feeling lighter, brighter, calmer, lengthened, strengthened and more in tune with ‘me’.
And after every class, I glowed inside and out, and my mind and body thanked me for showing up to the mat.
Join me on the mat and you will see for yourself that my body is still on its own unique journey. I’m not the most flexible yoga teacher you’ll meet, but yoga has brought strength, length and openness to my body and a sense of stillness to my mind. And that’s the wonder of yoga!
Yoga welcomes everyone. The ego is left at the door.
Your body is unique. We have all been on our own unique journey and yoga respects that.
Yoga doesn’t care what you look like, nor how bendy or flexible you are.
Yoga doesn’t care whether you can touch your toes, whether you can sit in lotus pose or whether you can stand on your head.
Yoga is not about touching your toes. It’s about what you learn on the way down.
It will make you glow from the inside out. And it’s that magical feeling I want to share with you.
I completed my Yoga Alliance RYT 200 hours Yoga Teacher training in 2017 with the formidable Anne-Marie Newland, founder of Sun Power Yoga, in Leicester. I travelled to Morocco with her in the Summer of 2017; it was physically and emotionally the hardest and the best thing I have ever done! Teacher training has brought with it a changed perspective on life.
Sun Power Yoga is a dynamic and eclectic blend of four traditional types of yoga. I maintain a regular personal practice to continue my own journey and attend regular workshops and training events to help you evolve on yours.
Yoga with change your life…
Whatever your reason for coming to the mat, I promise yoga will accept you with open arms and will quite possibly change your life.
