"Hi.. I'm Billy..
My yoga journey began in the early 90s in Australia...
I found a book that my mum had about stretching.
I think I thought that it might make my body stronger (I was a pretty skinny young chap) and didn't fancy the competitive vibes of the gym.
It was a book of yoga Asana with all the yoga removed basically.
But, I quickly began having all these changes occurring and pretty serious 'aha' moments. I will say that this was at least in part to getting out of my head and into my body.
Around the same time another friend took me to a meditation session at the local uni campus.
It was Trataka , which is candle gaze and it totally blew my mind.
For days afterwards, I felt like I was in cloud 9. I guess I really needed it
I began attending Iyengar style classes and the crumbs of yoga philosophy just kept on opening my eyes.
I would sometimes leave my practice alone but I would always come back to it.
Finally did a teacher training in 2018 with no real intention to teach but I really got along with it and have been teaching ever since...
In my poolside sessions, I hope to share some of the magic of a yoga practice.
Breath, movement and awareness to start the week and walk in the world as our best selves...
Join me Mondays at 8:45 - 9:45 by the lovely outdoor pool at the Park
All welcome, £10 drop in, I have plenty of spare mats.
Oh, and I might sing to you as well... "
