I discovered yoga thanks to my lovely wife, Sophie. Having played a lot of rugby at school, my neck, back and shoulders were a bit of a mess, and having been to a number of classes Sophie kept telling me to check it out as it might help. Stubborn bloke as I can be, I kept putting it off thinking (wrongly) that Yoga was going to be a group of women stretching and chanting, and definitely not for me. Eventually I was convinced to try a class and not only was I way off, I was hooked: the feeling of euphoria after class combined with a physical work out was just what I needed.
Fast forward a few years of going to class on and off and then spending some time in San Francisco where I was exposed to some truly extraordinary teachers and mentors. Here was where the seed was planted to share my passion with others.
We returned to Ware expecting our first child and it was after the birth that the need to help people fully bloomed (if we were more financially stable I was seriously considering training as a Midwife), and so I started to seriously consider taking the plunge and training as a Yoga Teacher.
Since beginning my training and starting to teach, I have become committed to getting as many people into Yoga as I can: my own journey has provided not only some amazing physical benefits, but I have seen improvements mentally and emotionally. Yoga has given me the tools to make myself stronger and physically fitter, but it has also equipped me to better deal with depression when that rears its ugly head.
