I first started Yoga, in a very naive mindset of 'Ooh that's quite cool', 'I like feeling calm'; but I was drawn in, & it set a bug in me.
I come from a background in the Performing Arts & so I spent a relative amount of time training in dance. I was never a person who was naturally drawn to sport or exercise as a child, but I always loved to move. Unfortunately, the pressures of dance & performing affected my relationship with my body & food in a particularly negative way. For a long time anything to do with my body felt like a battle & or a fight. I was either working hard attacking my body trying to get it into a shape like I could approve of, or disregarding it completely. My stress levels began to soar & I started to suffer with frequent panic attacks.
Firstly I learnt to meditate, nothing wild or fancy, just guided youtube videos, but enough to find small moments of calm in the spinning of my mind. I then began slowly finding my way to yoga, & I started to untie some of those manic tight knots inside myself. I slowly learnt to find my inner connection, & little by little to take that into my life & keep me grounded. Breathe through my fears (- not stop them).
The physical practice has taught me loving connection with my body, learning how to work with my body, not against it. The philosophy & everything that studying yoga holds, enriches my experiences daily - it's an endless learning curve.
Sorry to get quite so mushy, but the practice has also taught me to embrace my mush. I've always been a lover over a fighter.
I chose the name Flow Rogue, because I believe in creating and finding your personal yoga for your personal journey - not a pre prescribed path, so 'Rogue'. I believe there is a Yoga for everyone (I'll still love you if it's not with me..) .
To be clear - I'm not saying Yoga is about to fix world hunger or stop the worlds pain. But personal knowledge & freedom leaks out. Personal freedom, is, collective freedom. Learning our own boundaries, encourages us to fight for the protection of others.
Hopefully I can give you a bit of the yoga bug too.
