What crazy times we're living in! Just a couple of weeks ago my classes were going well and my diary was full of upcoming yoga festivals, workshops and events. Everything was good and then the unthinkable happened - movement severely restricted and our health and livelihoods under threat.
We are all having to adapt to a completely different way of living and thinking. Some of it has been amazingly positive. The theme for this month's classes is "gratitude" - easy to say but coronavirus has really brought it's meaning into focus. Health, family, home, sunshine - the things that really matter but so easy to take for granted.
As classes, studios and gyms closed their doors the rush to get online started. To be honest, I've found the sheer quantity of classes available overwhelming and maybe you feel the same. However, I'm trying to establish a routine which includes a live yoga class from the teacher who inspired me to train. Before coronavirus I struggled to see the point in a live class but now I'm enjoying reconnecting with my teacher.
I qualified to teach in 2015 but my yoga journey started much earlier, way back in the 1970s. Here I share my experiences and passion about everything yoga.
