My name is Chelsea and I am a creative individual who wishes to share yoga and Indian head massage with you. I’m old enough to remember a time when technology didn’t rule the world, yet still appreciative of the advantages it can offer – when I figure out how it works! I live with my husband and we share our home with various animals. Reading, cross stitch, crochet, decorating and gardening are among my many interests, along with indulging in a spot of medieval re-enactment now and again.
Yoga – just a bit of stretching?
This is what many people think, myself included, before I tried it. Then I understood. Not only do you have complete control over what your body does, but it also helps to calm the mind in a constantly changing busy society. Yoga helps us to reconnect with ourselves.
After spending several years as a primary school teacher, I decided I needed to address the issue of my work-life balance, or rather, the lack of it. Learning and gaining knowledge about various subjects is one of my passions and I decided to put this to good use by training to be a yoga instructor. Helping people to get the best out of themselves is extremely rewarding and the ethos behind yoga being non-competitive suits me completely! Anyone can do yoga, as long as they are willing.
Say Yes to Yoga was created out of a desire to help people feel good about themselves, pay attention to their bodies and accept who they are. You do not have to be the strongest, fittest or most flexible person to take part – I’m certainly not! And this is what I want to share with others.
