"When people first come to yoga its to tone their bodies, but they often stay for their minds." Baron Baptiste.
I remember the first time I read those words. I had been dabbling in yoga for couple of years and was noticing the physical benefits of a strength based practice. After a class I would always feel a yoga bliss wash over me but I never fully understood those words until Yoga Bare. Then I realised how YOGA had saved me!
Having spent 15 years working as a sport massage therapist, I was looking for a therapy that i could work with my clients in healing them on a permanent bases. My journey took me through Personal Training, Functional Correctional Training, even Kinisiology but none I found were sustainable.
Then I found HOT YOGA! The infra red heating healed the soft tissue, the heat stimulated systems like cardiovascular and metabolism, the movement of asana strengthen and lengthened, toned and released.
As I was challenged to find the depth of my practice I was encouraged to release my EGO, my fears, my anxieties, and as I did injuries both physical and emotional ones healed. For the first time in my life i could stand tall, both physically and metaphorically without pain or anxiety.
I didn't just arrive on my mat as a Yoga Teacher, authentic and strong, leading the way. Like so many other people, I had to go through the dark to get to the light.
This transformational journey is not limited to a select few it is available to all that are ready to open themselves to the possibility of change.
In my class you will be challenged with a strong practice, finding breath and movement, you will sweat and you will grow. You will also learn of self awareness, self kindness, self love.
Cant wait to share this journey with you.
See you on the mat.
