mybodymyoga - making time for your healthy body and mind

About Lorraine

Having always enjoyed regular exercise at the gym and taking exercise classes, I decided, 8 years ago, to accept an invitation to a Tuscan yoga retreat from a friend. I had experimented with yoga classes previously but was not a regular Practioner. Working for a large global corporate I was feeling the workplace stresses that many of us are familiar with, and suffering frequent migraines - so ready for some holistic nurturing of the body and mind!

Following a wonderful week of immersion into daily yoga practice; working on simple foundation postures, breathing techniques and meditation, I was determined to ensure to keep the practice going at home. I did not want to lose the feeling of being more in control, exploring my physical potential and just feeling better...

Soon, my passion for Hatha yoga was too strong to keep to myself – so I embarked on a Yoga Alliance Teacher Training course with Sam Rao, my own inspirational trainer and mentor and began the next stage of my yoga journey – to share the benefits of yoga into the community.

Sam taught me to teach with clarity and passion. To allow students to accept what they can do today, to be patient and to encourage postures but to treat our bodies with love and kindness as we learn to understand the structure and mechanisms of the anatomy and patterns of our thinking.

I am now qualified, fully insured and enjoy teaching small groups, classes, dedicated one-to-one sessions and corporate workplace yoga classes. My aim is to share the benefits that yoga can bring to your life.

Regular yoga practice inspired me in so many ways; not just eliminating migraines but also helping me create a better work life balance, to feel more alive, energised, less stressed and to maintain physical strength and fitness. Now it’s your turn...
