My yoga journey started about 10 years ago when my Swedish friend Louise dragged me to a Bikram yoga class in Brussels. From day one I was hooked! Despite the smelly room (if you've ever done Bikram you know what I mean!) I felt soooo good at the end that I started practising it religiously 4 times a week. Back then I was obsessed by the way I looked and Bikram + running was a great combo to meet my crazy burning calories targets!
After three years I moved to London and the never-ending daily commute forced me to put my yoga practice on a side. Until one day, an oval green sign saying "YOGA" appeared on the high street, just around the corner from where I lived.
Yes, you guessed it, I was back on my mat and this time it was for good. Why?
Because yoga is freedom, healing, creativity and self-expression.
After becoming a mum my focus shifted from the "I practice to look good" to "I practice to feel good". In need of recovering from post-natal depression, I was craving for moments in which I could be myself. No responsibilities, no worries, just my mat, my body and my breath.
I can't wait to share the practice with you!
