As I was approaching my 46th birthday I became increasingly aware that I had to make some changes to my life before I became a candidate for an early demise! I was working long hours in a demanding job and commuting from Carlisle to Newcastle on a daily basis. My family were neglected and I was exhausted. To make matters worse I am an insulin dependant diabetic and my sugar control was all over the place! I had heard about yoga and knew that it was supposed to be good for getting you fit, but more importantly for calming the mind and so I decided to give it a go. It really helped and as time went by I felt better and better.
In April 2013 I went to India and completed 300hrs teacher training with Sushumna Yoga in Goa, and I am an accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher. This experience was an amazing one and taught me much about myself and took my yoga practice to another level. I firmly believe that practising yoga has had such a positive effect on my health and well-being and would recommend it to everyone.
