I am not a gymnast and I don’t have a dancing background like a lot of yoga teachers. In fact, I remember being pretty terrible at gymnastics at school.
my life before yoga
For eight years I was working in TV on shows such as Spooks, Mr. Selfridge, Ashes to Ashes and Call the Midwife. I was on set every day meeting incredible people, travelling all over, completely absorbed by the buzz of being part of a film set. It was in some ways an amazing job, but in a lot of ways it was brutal. I was working 90-hour weeks on short term contracts, always worrying about finding the next job. I have battled with insomnia since the age of 15 and in 2015 the job took its toll on me and I was signed off work. I was exhausted and knew that my work had completely and utterly taken over my life.
