I have done yoga on and off since I was a teenager. While traveling I attended classes when we visited beach towns and hippie villages and I always loved my experiences but I was never able to seriously commit. Then one year ago, when walking through the park near my house, I discovered an evening yoga class going on and decided to sign up.
Since that point I have made Yoga a big part of my life and made a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. My teacher, Elena, is incredible and not only do we learn Hatha Yoga for fitness and strength, we also study Vinyasa (or flow) Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, Chakras and Breathing. I now love to take part in Yoga seminars and retreats to push my body and learn more. For the lovely ones of you who follow me on Instagram you saw that yesterday I attended an amazing lesson all about Thai Yoga and how yoga poses can be used to release aches and pains – so amazing!
I only started a year ago, so I still have a lot to learn, but it is amazing to reflect and see how much growth I have made in such a small space of time, because I honestly think starting Yoga has been one of the best things I have ever done.
