I first started practising yoga 21 years ago as a way to help with the stresses of a being a full time Carer and a very busy life. I felt that I had benefited so much from practising yoga at home and in class and when it was suggested to me that I might benefit from a more in depth study of Yoga I decided to go on the BWY Foundation Course and followed this with the BWY Teaching Diploma Course which I completed in 2014.
I really enjoyed learning more about the philosophy of Yoga as well as the history, practice of the asanas, meditation and breathing. I feel I have benefited so much from all areas of Yoga in all aspects of my life that I wish to continue my education and I hope to be able to share how Yoga has helped me and the benefits of regular practice with others. Learning about yoga is a life journey and I continue to attend yoga seminars and classes in order to gain further knowledge and understanding of all aspects of Yoga.
Through Yoga, my role as a Carer and now as a Teacher my confidence has grown and I know how important it is to allow time for oneself especially in the world we live in today, I am a very patient person, and I like to see results no matter how long this takes and to bring out the best in others and to enable them to bring out the best in themselves.
“The classes are not only about physical and mental well -being but also enabling students to raise their energy levels and to bring balance to what is a very busy life.”
“Having time to your-self is so beneficial,”. “The classes offer students an opportunity to help themselves in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and then to be able to take what they have learned into all areas of their lives.”
These classes include basic yoga postures and flows, basic breathing techniques, to raise energy levels and an introduction to meditation to help with the low energy that can result from stress, injury or disabilities.
