It all started in 2017 for me after watching a video on YouTube with Simon, see link below:

This inspired me at the age 45 to begin my yoga practice, I saw something in Simons movement that I found impressive, from my past as a martial artist I saw some elements that reminded me of this, intertwined with flowing moves I had never seen before, and I saw in Simon the movement and grace that I aspired to be.

From my time is martial arts I had naturally formed my own type of flowing moves from the various arts I had studied but I didn’t have the Yoga Asanas, vinyasa and flexibility that was demonstrated in Simons videos.

Soon after I began my journey with some online yoga synergy videos, and then more recently decided to take the Yoga Advanced Fundamentals course.

It wasn’t long before I realised that yoga is far more than stretching and fancy moves, and realized that I didn’t need be the most flexible person in the world. I could just happy being who I was and be happy with what I have. Even though I still strive for improvement within myself I do not have to compare myself with anyone else.

I initially found studying hard but after the first week I gained momentum and started to enjoy every minute, every bit of reading work and every Asana and sequence, I looked forward to studying every day, it was never a chore.

I was quite sad when it came to the end, Simon and Bianca are great teachers and explain things really well.

The last few weeks of my course were during the start of the world wide Coronavirus epidemic and I found great comfort in the course at this time as it helped me to focus, stay calm and at times to meditate.

I would highly recommend you take this course if you want to deepen your understanding of yoga.

I look forward to building on what I have learnt so far, progressing and becoming a better version of myself every day. I also would love to meet Simon and Bianca in real life and take part in a class.
5-star rating from me.
