I am an ex-Police officer and was one of the first officers on scene during the London riots. My Police patrol vehicle was set on fire and I witnessed the raw negative side of human nature, my ownlife was at risk. This experience lay heavy on my heart and caused me to feel hurt. My dedication to my practice and stepping onto my mat daily, not always for asana, sometimes I would just sit or meditate was what got me through my heartache.
Having been encouraged by my own teacher, I decided to train as a yoga teacher so I could share the experience and benefits that yoga has given me in my life. I initially started practising yoga aboutten years ago, mainly for the physical improvements it gives of strength, stamina and flexibility. I was very keen on sports, namely running and swimming, but found I was suffering from frequent minor injuries which were preventing me from reaching my potential.
I started my yoga practice in 2000, mainly as a form of exercise, but soon found that yoga had many additional benefits, particularly as a way of stilling my constantly chattering mind and as an aidto relaxation. Over the years I have tried many forms of yoga (including Hatha, Iyengar, Astanga, Dynamic Flow, Sivananda). In 2009, I started teacher training with Triyoga, to deepen my practice and understanding of yoga, under the tutelage of Anna Ashby and Joey Miles.
My name is Amber, I first started yoga in the 1970's when i was 15 years old. A back injury forced me to drop out of competitive gymnastics but i still liked to go to the local sports centre where iwatched a yoga class through a tinted window one day, and i was hooked. I waited to ask the teacher at the end of the class if i could join in, but as the class was made up mainly of retired ladies, I wondered if i was was too young? The teacher replied that yoga was for all people of all ages.
I have been passionate about health and fitness for many years and I do passionately believe that movement, exercise and physiology can be very effective at alleviating and resolving many of theissues that we find as by products of living in the 21st Century - such as stress, depression, anxiety, obsessive behaviour etc.
Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, shape and size. Men, women, kids, and seniors, mothers-to-be and new mums will all benefit from regular yoga practice. Your first step onto the yoga matis the start of an exciting journey to building a solid yoga foundation.
