From being a keen little gymnast and growing veggies on my old Pa’s allotment when I was young, to working as a fitness instructor / personal trainer for three years and now as a full-time yoga teacher, it’s safe to say I’ve always had an awareness of maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
In 2016, I travelled to Sydney and ended up staying for ten months. During my time there, I fell in love with the Aussie’s holistic approach to a living healthy lifestyle; I worked in a wholefoods store (of which there were hundreds!) and joined a gym full of some incredible personal trainers, nutritionists and yoga instructors.
In Oz, as well as eating well, keeping active and listening to the body’s needs, I found that taking care of the mind is equally as important if we want to lead a healthy lifestyle. As I’ve always struggled with demons (who hasn’t?), this was something that really resonated with me; after all,I know from experience that it doesn’t matter how many ‘superfoods’ I eat, if I’m feeling worried or stressed, my body is simply not going to function properly.
I returned to the UK with the intention of spreading this philosophy, incorporating it into my business. In 2018, I completed a 200HR yoga teacher training and have done three more courses since. I now teach yoga full-time; I love how it brings people together, how it encourages us to be more compassionate towards ourselves and others, and how it highlights the connection between the body and mind.
Alongside continuing my own journey, I want to inspire you to lead a more balanced lifestyle; whether that means eating healthier, getting more active, doing yoga, finding a new hobby or practising a bit of self care, hopefully it will enrich your life and make each day brighter.
Love and Light,
