I had to learn to go inside and not focus on the outside so much. I had to learn to let go, to surrender, to trust, to be compassionate and to be patient. This was a long and difficult process, but Ihave found a way back to my true self through strong commitment to the Yogic practices and teachings. I decided to leave my model and acting career behind and dedicated my life to the practice of yoga.
Yoga isn't about how flexible you are and which poses you achieve, it's about finding something you connect with, that both your mind and your body like coming back to everyday. In my own personalpractice I have a teacher who I trust 100% who guides me through my practice which in turn assists me in my everyday life. The yoga world at first was an intimidating place as having been a personal trainer and teaching fitness classes I was not used to such an environment, or sanskrit terminology!
Have you considered offering a yoga class to your employees as part of a staff training day? I have taught many such classes and although there were a few skeptical faces at the beginning, peoplequickly cottoned on to the truth that yoga IS for every body, and can be good fun as well as excellent exercise! I have found that many people who have attended such an event have subsequently taken up yoga on a regular basis and really felt the health benefits.

Mark's passion is Ashtanga Yoga, which found him in 2008 when he accompanied a friend to a class as a favour. This was repaid many-fold as he developed this transformational personal yoga practice andwith it a duty to pass on the benefits realized in his life to others. Since 2008 Mark has developed a daily Ashtanga practice initially being influenced by David Swenson, an early student of 'Guruji' Shri K Patthabi Jois, the founder of modern Ashtanga Yoga.

I have always been a very active person all my life. Having grown up on the west coast of Sweden I practically spent most of my childhood spare time out-doors and developed a great love for a numberof out-door activities such as running, swimming, long distance cycling, skiing and hiking. I was also involved in martial arts for many years which gave me my first insight into an eastern based philosophy and practice system.
