My journey to Yoga
Part of my gap year 8 years ago was spent on various volunteer projects in Malaysia, Thailand and India. With time to travel between projects I sought adventure - I allowed myself to be guided upon the advice of others, planning very little.. I found myself in Rishikesh a place, some consider, the Yoga capital of the world.
One afternoon I stumbled across a flyer advertising Yoga. Having felt magnetically drawn to Rishikesh, it seemed only fitting to indulge in Yoga. The address led to a glass box suspended above the Ganges nearby accessed only by a narrow staircase. Wholeheartedly I attended my first session unbeknownst to me, an advanced class, and so my journey with Yoga began. I felt of sense returning to something I had always known mixed with completion and joy.
... Since then
Yoga remained a constant no matter the changes. Despite embarking upon a career within the corporate world I, at times, found myself strangely drawn to Yoga and the feeling I'd felt that fateful afternoon.
Each time I practiced Yoga seemed to fill me with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity. During this time I practiced with some of the World's most respected teachers, at some of London's most prestigious studios. I am now in a fortunate position to be able to pass on all that I learnt during these years.
