So unbelievably, I conclude my first year as a yoga teacher, filled with enthusiasm and delight at how well it's gone! I really have enjoyed myself!

I have been so lucky to have the opportunity to teach a variety of styles of yoga (Static hatha, hot vinyasa flow, yin, yinyang) at such a variety of places so far - Surrey Sports Park, Hotpod, Guildford Spectrum, Peak Fitness Gym, Akram Yoga Studios, Cafe Mila, not to mention a number of private homes, GreenArks Community Centre, Burpham Wellbeing Studio and now Queen Elizabeth Park community Centre for my own classes. From class planning & sequencing, to business running, balancing life and practice with work and continually learning has meant an immense journey that feels like its only just begun!

I have to say, the best part of the job is you guys - my students make the whole job such a wonderful and rewarding thing - watching people start connecting with themselves, their bodies, enjoying their progress, all whilst building friendships and little community of such lovely folk, opens up new doorways of yoga that I didn't even fathom.

The encouragement and support I have received as a teacher has truly been humbling and heartwarming and its with grateful wide eyed joy that I look ahead to 2016.

So new changes for 2016, Monday mornings have moved to the lovely Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre in Queen Elizabeth Park, Stoughton, Guildford. I'm confident that this venue will be our yoga home for a long time to come as it ticks all the boxes :)

I've also taken on a full timetable in terms of my teaching capacity with an agreed position from February at at the brand new Aveda yoga studio which is amazing!

I will keep learning and keep sharing everything I find about yoga and hope my passion ignites yours :)

For now, I wish you ALL a fabulous, Happy, Joy Filled Christmas and New Year!

Viva Yoga! :D

Namaste
