I started practising yoga in 2003 when I moved to Chicago with work as a means of getting to know people in the area. On return to the UK in 2004 I continued my practice attending classes at my localhealth club (David Lloyd Leisure) and then moved into locally run classes. Since then I have been regularly attending classes and private lessons with my teacher, Michelle Chand.
I've been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 20 years and have taught many disciplines - Boxercise, Spinning, Body Pump and Step. to name a few. I've seen many fads in the fitnessindustry - the "latest, greatest" workouts that are eventually discredited or lose popularity. And I've seen Pilates and Yoga endure throughout. Why? Because they work! In a results-orientated environment many thousands of people have seen for themselves the benefits of Pilates and Yoga.

A Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practised for health and relaxation. Theword yoga itself means "union": of the individual soul with the universal consciousness or spirit. Sadly we are living in a world that forces us to believe that outer attainments can give us what we want. Yet we continually have a feeling that something is missing or a void needs to be filled.
Claire's journey into yoga commenced when she attended her first yoga class in her early twenties. Arriving at an Ashtanga Primary series led class with no expectations, she was completely mesmerisedby the synchronised movements, the flowing breath and total sense of calm. In that morning she found her practice and her teacher. Whilst still eagerly pursuing a corporate career she continued to practise but often at the peril of a very busy workload.
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.

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!
