Like most people, I was initially drawn to yoga as a form of exercise. I couldn’t stand the thought of joining the gym again just to cancel the membership 2 months later, having only been a handful of times.
I came across a yoga class in a local church hall and thought I’d give it a try. I enjoyed it so much that I found myself wanting to do more classes, the total opposite effect that gyms had on me! So, I looked up studios near me. That’s when I found Yoga Jo’s in Milngavie.
I found myself going to as many classes as I could. I didn’t know why I loved it so much but I knew there was more to it than exercise. In 2015, the studio sent out an email saying they were going to be running a teacher training course for the first time. I signed up straight away and that’s when I truly started to understand why I was hooked.
In December 2016 my daughter, Charlotte, was born. Followed not too far behind by her sister, Georgia, in September 2018. I had to give up going to yoga classes as I had very little time to myself but quickly became overwhelmed with juggling work and family life.
I began practicing yoga for 20-30 minutes each night after my girls were in bed and found that this provided the same benefits as going to hour long classes.
It is now my mission to bring yoga, and its many benefits, to as many mums as possible.
