Yoga originated in India about5 thousand years ago, and has been practised daily as a spiritual discipline by those seeking a deep understanding of themselves and of the world around them ever since.

I was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 with the idea that it was purely a form of exercise, but it had an instant positive impact on my life. I was taught different styles by various teachers whilsttravelling, and grew more intrigued by the whole experience. I decided in 2010 it was time to take a Hatha teacher's training with Swara Yoga School in Thailand. My continuing fascination with Yoga led me to Yasodhara Ashram and study centre, Canada, where I spent several months studying.
