When I was working in corporate, I had back issues quite often. I thought to myself, if I stayed in corporate, I’d be spending a lot of money on chiropractor fees and it wouldn’t solve the problem for me. It took for me to be in that place of discomfort and suffering both mentally and physically that pushed me to make a change.
Yoga had always been there for me. After doing Bikram and Hatha I felt the difference in my body that I couldn’t get from paddling (I used to do dragon boat racing too) or running. The calm and lightness of Yoga helped me to understand how tense I’d been due to work stress and repetitive sitting positions.
Eventually I signed up to teacher training, not with the intention to teach, but wanting to learn more about Yoga. As I began teaching, I saw the transformation in my corporate clients from coming in feeling haggard, tight and tired, to feeling calm, released and rejuvenated at the end.
This was when I realised I wanted to teach Yoga, particularly to the corporate people who sit at their desks all day. Because they could benefit the most from Yoga.
