Why I Love Yoga…


Ahead of International Yoga Day 2015, which is two days away on Sunday 21 June, I want to share what yoga means to me and why I practice. I hope I can inspire others to begin their yoga journey too and if not, at the very least, understand a little more about yoga.

I fell in love with yoga from day one – I was first introduced to yoga 11 years ago and it has been a part of my life in some shape or form ever since.


As a busy Londoner, there is no better way for me to retreat from the craziness of city life, than to roll out my mat and stretch out. Practicing yoga is a form of self-love and realisation, it is a wonderful way to tune into my body & mind. I am not a spiritual person, however, I am becoming increasingly mindful of myself and how I feel both internally and externally.

Yoga is unique because it has no boundaries, it can be done almost anywhere, at any time, with anyone and requires little more than a mat. It is suitable for all ages, fitness levels, shapes & sizes, and there is a style of yoga to suit everyone.


I practice several types of yoga, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra. The more energetic & flowy styles of yoga are great to start the day with and the more chilled out styles of yoga are perfect for the end of the day (or after a run!). Sometimes I like to practice yoga with relaxing background music, other times, I like to practice in silence.

There are certainly times that I drift in and out of regular yoga practice, but I never stop for too long because the sense of calm and wellbeing that yoga provides me with is incredibly fulfilling, which in turn energises me. My yoga journey is both personal & exciting, and I hope that other people are inspired to find their own journey to happiness too, whether it be through yoga or other activities.
