My first experience of Yoga, was when aged 7, I found a book at home, with pictures in black and white of Asanas (Yoga postures). I remember trying to replicate the various postures.
I joined my first Yoga class, when I was 20 and I have practiced Yoga ever since. I love how Yoga makes me stronger and calmer. I feel connected to my feelings and to the people around me. The benefits of Yoga are spiritual and physical. Yoga gives me inner calm, strength and confidence.
One of my Yoga teachers, who trained in the style of Iyengar, also organised many Yoga seminars and taught pre and post natal Yoga. She inspired me to become a teacher. Yoga helped me and supported me during both pregnancies and the birth of my children.
I have got a keen interest in Holistic therapies and became a qualified reflexologist in 2001. I then went on to study Holistic Massage and Reiki.
