Home practice... my early experiences

Looking back and reflecting on my own home practice, how I started and what I've learnt

shutterstock 18954187I've had a few conversations recently about self practice, I was even honoured to write a piece as part of my good friend Claire's blog. Now that I'm spending less time teaching and more time practicing over the Christmas break it feels like a good time to explore a home practice in more depth. There are a tonne of tips and tools out there to help you on a practical level so I propose focusing more on my own tumultuous practice and maybe offer some hope to everyone out there who's struggling with this eternal internal battle.

I guess I'm weird. Before you nod too vigourously, let me qualify that statement. I'm weird because my yoga journey actually started at home. With a book and a blanket. I've always been interested in other cultures and over time that morphed into the beauty of philosophy and an understanding that in the end we all want the same thing. To be free.

But I'm rushing ahead. What I learnt most in those early days, and mornings, from those tentative yoga practices is the power that is yoga. Which, by the way, helped me a whole lot when I first started to teach aswell. I didn't have the first clue about what I was doing. Honestly, I have no idea what the hell I thought I was playing at. What I do know is there was something and once that flame was fired it was never going to go out. It might fade and flicker, a lot, but never, ever extinguish.
