Yoga is the Foundation
Be intrigued by the physical then amazed by the philosophical. The physical benefits of a regular yoga practice are well known. but if you delve deeper you’ll find that yoga has significantly more to offer than toned arms and fancy shapes. It can provide a solid foundation for living life off the mat, cultivating awareness, intention, discipline, resilience and greater knowledge of self.
What can I do for you?
I can help you think clearer, move freer and sleep deeper through the consistent practice of mindful movement.
If you’re reading this you’re probably stressed-out, time-poor and find it impossible to switch off. You work long hours and feel you’re losing yourself in the demands of your job. You’re outwardly successful but inwardly wondering if what you have is what you want. There’s a voice that keeps popping up in your head asking “what am I doing? and why am I doing it?” and you don’t have the headspace to figure out the answers.
Maybe you want to change your situation but feel trapped by your limiting beliefs. Maybe you love what you do but want to be more intentional and strategic in how you do it and find a way that allows you to live life on your terms.
Am I right?
Well, you’re in the right place. I’ve been exactly where you are now. I dismissed that inner voice initially, but the louder it got the harder it became to ignore. Beyond the money, status and success,I needed meaning. I needed to find my purpose.
Yoga set me on the path of self-inquiry and self-discovery. With consistent practice, my focus sharpened, my mindset shifted, and my wellbeing, both mental and physical, significantly improved. I now live life with greater intention, awareness of self and a clear purpose to guide and inspire others to think big, challenge expectations and embrace the unknown. I’m also happier and healthier and more energised than ever.
I want to share with you what yoga did for me. I’ve been where you are and found a path out the other side. If you’re willing to do the work, through yoga I can guide you to a happier and healthier you with the physical freedom and clarity of mind necessary to figure out what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and whether you want to be doing it at all.
What can yoga do for you?
The best way to answer this is by sharing what yoga has done for me. But first, some words of warning.
Yoga isn’t a magic cure-all and it isn’t an easy option. But if you do the inner and outer work necessary to make a significant transformation in your mind and your body, the practice provides an excellent framework for living your life.
Initially, I kept going back to yoga for the clarity of mind and feeling of inner peace I felt at the end of every class. To prolong that feeling I began daily mediation and breathwork. This led to a greater awareness of my unconscious actions and a shift from living a life of reaction to a life of intention.
With intention came focus and with focus a renewed curiosity into why we do certain things and act in ways that place limits on what we believe we can achieve. To practice yoga is to practice self-inquiry, and, if you keep an open mind, this self-inquiry can lead you to tap into ideas and potential you didn’t know you had. Through self-inquiry, I gained the confidence and resilience to think big, challenge expectations and embrace the unknown.
Yoga gave all of this to me and if you commit to the practice, it will give the same to you.
What’s your purpose?
We all have a story to tell, a duty to share it and a purpose to follow. My purpose is to inspire people like you to think differently, and break free of the mental cell of self-limitation in which we all tend to confine ourselves. I want you to become the version of yourself that you want to be, empowering you to think bigger and take action to realise your dreams. Yoga was the catalyst for me in following this path and I want to share my story with you. With clearer thinking, freer movement and better sleep, all benefits of a regular yoga practice, you can create the space and clarity necessary to figure out your purpose and the steps required to fulfil it.
Is yoga for me?
Yes! Yoga is for everybody. The ability to touch your toes or stand on your head is immaterial, despite what you may have seen or heard. There is nothing wrong with aspiring to achieve these physical feats but yoga is so much more than that. Once you stop chasing the poses, enjoy the process, and begin to look inward at what each pose is teaching you, that’s where you will find the true benefits of the practice. And that’s when the transformation begins.
The flexibility of the body means nothing without the flexibility of the mind and with consistent practice, you will create space in both. Moving the body with the breath without competition or ego and focusing on being present on the mat will awaken you physically, mentally and spiritually.
I invite you to ignore any preconceptions you may have, listen to my story, then come practice with me.
