physical activity for some, refuge for others, mystery for many

I never thought I would end up as a yoga teacher.

I never played sports in school. When I did I came last in everything and never did any physical exercise until I was well into adulthood. I hated it.

However, having worked a highly stressful job and dealing with the general anxieties of modern day life, somewhere along the way, I ended up in a yoga class. I was so bad when I started and found it incredibly difficult – not what I had expected. I left my first class in a state due to my lack of physical fitness and body awareness. Now here I am, teaching others the benefits of an active lifestyle.

How ironic. If I can do it, anyone can.

Something I have come up against over the years is the two main misconceptions of what a yoga class is. Yoga, to many, is a physical activity; to some, it’s a refuge; and, to plenty, it is somewhat of a mystery.
