MY STORY

It’s not all about touching your toes…

A life in the performing arts means constantly uprooting and changing entire settings at the drop of a hat, albeit, a sparkly top hat in a Bob Fosse flurry. For me, the answer to staying sane (or near enough), has been to root down within myself.

Yoga had always appealed to me and over time my depth of understanding grew. I joined a studio with a wonderful sense of community and began to practice nearly everyday. As everyone has, I have had my hardships; cancer, a thyroid disorder, anxiety, career instability and grievances, but throughout all of the downs (and indeed ups), yoga has kept me centred, strong, connected and it never fails to rejuvenate me.

My teacher training deepened my knowledge in every aspect and fed my hunger for growth and self inquiry. Yoga philosophy is a truly fascinating path to delve into. It feels a privilege to have discovered such an explorative, connecting and powerful tool towards unity and clarity during this short lifetime.
