Tamara is a seasoned yogi with a high level of experience. Read her story below:
I came to yoga looking for an alternative form of exercise and found something life changing. After my first yoga class 10 years ago, I instantly fell in love with the practice. I came away feeling bright and energised, as if I could handle anything. As the months went by my body became, stronger, more flexible and mentally I felt happier, calmer and more centred.
Yoga teaches me so much about my self. There will always be days when I am not bendy and have dreadful balance but these are the days I learn the most. It doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect, it’s my time to zone out and connect with myself.
My favourite time to practice is first thing in the morning, my body feels light, my mind is peaceful and I am always optimistic for the day ahead.
