My Story

My initial experience in yoga was when I was 18 and quite accidently attended a class in a Fitness centre in Middlesex. At the time I didn’t realise just what yoga was capable of doing for my body and mind. However, whilst I was in Sunny Sri Lanka in my thirties, once again yoga crossed my path. An English gentleman married to a Sri Lankan lady, was teaching yoga in his established yoga ashram (studio). At the time I was suffering from inflammation of joints, spondylosis on my neck – affecting half of the right side of my body, I suffered many sleepless nights due to pain. Car accidents had left me with a weak lower back and two bulging discs on either side of my spine. Older and wiser I saw the potential in yoga to strengthen and nourish me, not only my body, but my mind too.

I started doing yoga on and off for few years taking it slowly as my joints were stiff and sore. After a while I could see and feel the results. So, officially I took the plunge in 2005 to practise on a daily basis. For me taking up yoga was a big challenge, but with perseverance and regular practise I have managed to achieve the quality of life I had all but given up hope of achieving. I no longer suffer with some of the ailments in the past and since practising yoga, and never fail to sleep like a baby – pain free.

During my regular practise my lovely teacher encouraged me to take up a Yoga Teacher Training Course so, I can help others. I took his advice graduated as a Yoga Teacher and been teaching since July 2012.

Now in my 50’s and I feel strong, flexible, energised and healthy thanks to yoga which has also give me a sense of peacefulness, a feeling of calm in this hectic world in which we live. I feel that Yoga has the potential to nourish both mind and body.
