Despite the t-shirt in my pic, I'm very rarely Mr Mean! I've been raised to believe that what ever you put into the world will come back to you 3 fold so I stick to putting out joy and reap the benefits.
More About Me
My Occupation is
I'm currently searching to find that special something that makes me tick. That role that would let my passion flow, my imagination run wild and help me grow.
My hobbies/interests are
The kitchen is the heart of my home and whenever I need a timeout and I'm not on a yoga mat, you'll find me in the kitchen whipping up a feast. My food isn't always the healthiest but it comes from the heart and will fill the belly.
Yoga of course! I started practicing 5 years ago now and have, finally, managed to ease myself into daily practice. My favorite pose is Trikonasana(triangle).
One secret that helps me to stay healthy is
It's not a secret but drinking lots of water has increased my energy levels and helped me stay focused longer. I'm sure it helps keep my smile glowing too!
My wellness goals are
I'm not sure I have a wellness goal as such. I'd like to run a marathon one day but for now I'd settle for improving my core strength and balance and holding a headstand for more than a few breaths.
I see myself achieving my wellness goals by
Practice practice practice.
My inspirations are
My family. They helped me be free, they let me find my own way, they were there when I realized it wasn't the right path.
A little more about me
At 26, I've suffered 2 serious depressions that yoga has helped me work through. I found yoga during my first serious downer and even when I was at my lowest, struggling to get out of bed for fear of the day, I found peace in Yoga which eventually flowed through me totally, giving me the strength to heal. More recently it was through maintaining my routine, practice, that kept me centered and ready to face the day.

I started practicing over 5 years ago and although I have seen a small improvement, I find that i am still struggling with forward bends. I feel quite strongly that I have developed a mental block that is preventing me moving forward in these poses and I'm looking for some inspiration and advice to help me work through my block and start making gentle progress. I find it incredibly challenging trying to relax into any forward bend, a tightness in my low back and hamstrings makes even a basic seated pose a challenge.
All and any advice and inspiration is welcome!
