MY STORY

Freedom …being totally free, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually has been a subconscious core value of mine all my life.

About 10 years ago everything came into focus and freedom became an awesome conscious core value.

Pursuing that value of being totally free, being totally authentic in all that I think, say and do has been real work.

It takes time, it doesn’t come easily, and there have been times when progress appears to be slow but it is so, so gratifying.  

Closing the door on one life to stroll into another of an entirely different fabric does not happen overnight. It’s a commitment that I have not regretted for a moment, but transcending one identity in search of my truth that appears to be shapeless, without colour or texture, is bold and as I have discovered, takes some real patience.

I was a typical, competitive, overachiever. I had a successful career in executive recruitment. I had, over the years, consistently been promoted and approached by increasingly more specialist consultancies, with escalating salaries, bonuses and benefits. It was a career that enslaved me because of the lifestyle I had acquired. The increase in salary was accompanied by ever increasing targets, which equated to longer hours, more stress and eventually, burn out.

I was miserable.

 

Since university I had spent years compelled to pursue ‘success’, the kind that was visible to my peers in the form of things. I felt the need to keep adding to myself, achieving things that would be recognised, would be admired. 

I ended up building an idea of myself, that bore precious little resemblance to the real me.  I was living a life that I realised I no longer believed in. I wanted out. So I started making decisions and taking action.

Dismantling that construct takes time. Letting go of attachments can be a difficult process; often daunting, sometimes revealing, usually raw, but opening to the possibilities of authenticity is a liberation that can be felt deep into your soul. There is pure joy to be found at every step of the journey. As you unravel the layers, the truth emerges, and personal growth manifests itself.

ABOUT YOGA IS A JOURNEY

I have been practising yoga for more than 20 years, delving into deep self- discovery for 10 years, and teaching yoga since 2018.

In a world of constant stimulus, of never feeling you do enough, have enough or achieve enough, my approach to yoga offers practical tools for healthy, modern, authentic living.

This feeling of being ‘less than’ is such a burden, causing worry, anxiety and a disconnection with ourselves, with those around us, and even with life itself. 

In my classes, we work firstly with awareness of ourselves. The physical, emotional and mental sensations that will bring you back into balance.

This is a space to encourage your attention back to your body, and out of your mind. The practise of yoga allows the body to breathe, to release tension, encourage ease and let go of unwanted energy that can feel heavy. 

The movement provides enough challenge to the body to encourage the breath, which supports the path of healing. 

Our time on the mat is an exploration of ourselves, physically, mentally & emotionally, should we wish to open to that which needs our care and attention. 

Some days it’s easier than others, it’s important to remember that ALL of you is welcome, just as you are.

I encourage you to listen to your body. YOUR body, YOUR practise. Do as little or as much as you choose.

 

I teach yoga for the skills to manage modern day living; the often high stimulus activity that can leave us feeling removed from ourselves.

Come to your mat, come back to your body, quieten the mind.

You can expect a light hearted, encouraging class environment, supporting your own personal experience. Honouring your body, your mental and emotional well-being, I take a functional, pragmatic approach to yoga. This means there is no aesthetic in mind for the poses, we each have a very different physical structures. The shape is not the destination, sensation is the destination.

My classes are suitable for all levels. I am passionate about creating practises for mental and physical health.

Healthy thoughts lead to healthy actions.

Let’s collectively raise our vibration, creating greater self-awareness and as a result, a greater understanding of ourselves. This only serves to deepen our own compassion and kindness towards ourselves, in turn our empathy to those closest to us.

From that comes greater love, understanding, a stronger sense of community; in turn a better understanding of life itself and our place in it.

Let's support one another on the journey. 

With love, Vikki
