I spent my teens and early twenties drifting in and out of yoga, but it wasn’t until 2006 that the yoga bug really bit me.
A three month yoga trip to India turned into two years and I completed my teacher training in 2008. I returned home to London soon after and have been teaching ever since.
Yoga is my pause in life; the thing that allows me to step back from the hustle and bustle of life and be quiet for the time I spend on the mat – whether that’s just a few minutes or two hours.
I like to play with the definition of what yoga is and rather than getting caught up in the idea of ‘what yoga should be’. I prefer to ask each person individually, "What do you need yoga to be for you?"
For me this is part of the beauty of yoga; it represents freedom, not constraint. If something isn’t working for you, it’s OK to try something different. All paths essentially lead to the same place. If you need to calm down: Yoga.
