It is so amazing to be here right now.
I am so happy to launch my little yoga business and see the seed of the idea I planted a while ago sprout into life. Being able to share yoga, which happens to be something I love, is such a privilege!
The journey from practising yoga to teaching it has been, well, wow. From the inspirational, down-to-earth, lovely people I have met along the way, to the teacher training experience itself (thank you Sally Parkes Yoga!), I have loved every minute.
Now don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t all been sunshine and buttercups…this journey has at times really challenged and overwhelmed me (I was the first of our teacher training group to have a day-long emotional purge, for example.) It has also pushed me way out of my comfort zone. But as a very sage person once said, the edge of your comfort zone is where the magic happens.
Getting through those challenging moments has made the feeling of qualifying and actually teaching in the Big Wide World so much sweeter! I’d even go so far as to say, embarking on this journey has been one of the most special, empowering and life affirming things I have done (aside from birthing my babies, which will always take the biscuit!)
Basically, since making the decision to teach yoga, it has always felt ‘right’…. in the way that coming home to a perfectly cold glass of wine, Netflix and sofa cuddles with the kids also feels perfectly ‘right.’ In yoga, we call this finding our ‘dharma’ or our true purpose in life. How good is that?!
The business side of things is a bit more of a work in progress (I confess, I have never been good at maths or technology) but my amazing husband has worked very hard to channel my inner geek. I am so grateful for his support – I could not have performed a career change about-turn without it!
So, enough about me. bendy yoga is really about YOU.
If I could shout from the rooftops “people of the world, yogify your life!” I would but I think I’d scare more people off than encourage them to experience yoga and its many benefits.
Instead, I’ll simply say that through bendy yoga, I wish to reconnect people to themselves. We spend too much time on the Extremely-Busy-Doing-Life Treadmill that we can often find ourselves with bodies that are bent out of shape and minds that are twisted up in knots.
bendy yoga allows you to unwind from the twists and turns of daily life so you can find your balance wherever you are on your journey.
Namaste, Tamsin x
