I have been practising yoga for 10 years and come from a family of 3 generations of yoga practitioners and teachers. As with many, I started yoga to get fit, but what I gained was so much richer than that. At the time I began attending regular classes I was struggling with mental health and addiction issues which I could see no escape from. Yoga gave me a framework to take care of my body, surrender my fears to, focus my future on and consequently make huge transformations. The experience of my transformation was not just due to the physical postures or Asanas, but instead a combination of practises that were offered to me by my teacher who was Integral Yoga trained.
