Almost on a whim, I walked into my first yoga class over 10 years ago and haven’t looked back since. As a former gym rat I never could have imagined just how swiftly and passionately yoga would become a part of my everyday life. But as I completed my practice that very first day, I experienced a lightness and sense of serenity that I had never encountered after the usual set of bicep curls or run around the track. Over the next few months yoga became the focus of my fitness routine rather than its supplement. The additional benefits of a regular practice began to emerge and continued to grow over time. The shooting pains of carpel tunnel syndrome which had been plaguing me from working long hours as a software engineer started to dissipate. The mental clarity and physical agility I felt after each practice was more than just addicting. It didn’t take long for me to realise that I wanted to share this incredible experience with others around me. I started by asking friends and family to join me for practice, and slowly began to take my own practice to a more rigorous level. I now enjoy sharing my passion as an instructor of customised one-on-one classes which combine elements of both yoga and Pilates. Throughout my journey, the devotion and wisdom of my teachers has been, and still remains, a source of inspiration. [email protected]
