Chillax is a word I have stolen from my daughters, but it is a good one! I had a really interesting and relaxing day of yoga on Sunday. I am obliged to attend two teacher training days a year to keep my teacher’s status and insurance up to date. They always seem like a lot of hassle to organise but I usually thoroughly enjoy them and wish I could fit in more! Check out my Yoga for Back Ache post if you fancy trying it.
I am not teaching at the moment but I will be taking two special sessions of yoga for my work colleagues next week. I am looking forward to this. They know me as the Jane who sits at a desk and organises people. This will give me the chance to show them a completely different side of me – yoga Jane!
If you are interested in yoga, try to find a teacher who has been trained by the British Wheel of Yoga or with an affiliated organisation. The training is really thorough, lasting at least three years. There are some exercise instructors out there who do a couple of days training and call themselves yoga teachers! Avoid!
The Wheel also has a great offer on at the moment where you can join for free for a year. Even if you don’t join you can find a properly qualified teacher in your area be searching the website, but if you join you can attend special yoga events and get the excellent Spectrum yoga magazine quarterly, among other benefits. Check it out here. They aren’t shouting about this enough in my opinion and it is hidden away, but choose the option to join online and under subscription type tick the ‘TRY BWY – first year free’ box. This is for a limited period only.
You will feel so much better for some exercise and yoga is a great choice 😀. It is fun and frugal exercise too.
