SATTVA HATHA YOGA
Balanced and Mindful Yoga
For many years, I led an incredibly stressful life, all the usual things, lifes ups and downs, hectic job, relationships and social life, all competing with one another for my time and energy – much the same as everyone else!
I hadn’t done any real exercise for several years and decided I would “ease” my way back into exercise with Yoga – little did I know that “easing” my way back into exercise was going to completely transform my life.
I loved that Yoga is non-competitive, and that my practice was “my” practice. I left my classes feeling energised, grounded, centered, and physically I could feel that my core muscles were being strengthened – I felt good – I also felt calm and mindful and far more able to deal with the “stuff” life throws at us.
After practicing Yoga for about a year I began to realise that there was far more to Yoga than the physical practice – this interested me and I began to research Yoga in more depth. This subsequently led me to taking my Yoga studies further and I enrolled on a British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Level 1 Course. I was inspired by my teacher and fellow students during the Foundation 1 course, and decided that Yoga was going to play an even bigger part of my life! I made the decision to train as a Yoga Teacher! I furthered my Yoga studies through taking the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Level 2 and then studied with Paul Fox for three years and graduated with the British Wheel of Yoga (500 hrs) Teaching Diploma.
I continue to refine and deepen my studies in Yoga through continuous professional development programmes and have a deep interest in Yoga Philosophy and Mindfulness.
I love what Yoga has brought to my life – a different outlook, mindfulness, serenity, health and fitness. I hope that Yoga can bring these qualities of life to you also.
