I first picked up a book on yoga at the age of 17, and spent a happy summer working my way through it - in the cemetery behind my dad's house!
In the 18 or so years since then, I've used my yoga practice to help maintain my focus and stamina during a decade-long career at the BBC, set up my own yoga teaching business, and practised and taught at every opportunity during a long spell of travelling.
Now, I teach private yoga classes alongside my work as a freelance, free-range copywriter. My copywriting blog, The Cat on the Mat, explores the ways in which yoga philosophy can be applied to marketing. It's also got a nice picture of a cat on it :)
