Classes are a calling.. often you find that a class discovers you.  I clearly remember how I felt before I found myself on this path of self discovery.   That there had to be more –  to life, to this, to my existence, what was this all about ?  

I was always very fit;  cycling, swimming, walking and running but that only took me so far – I looked good therefore I felt good.  But I felt a part of me was unfulfilled .  Spiritually I felt empty and needed nurturing  – I felt spiritually lost, disconnected.   I realise now, that back then, I was going through a transition of consciousness..I was becoming aware of  what I had not known before.  

So I tried yoga… many classes but they were not IT.  For me it was not about rocking up to a class and being physical was more than that – I needed something else.  I was going to give yoga one more shot with another teacher.  I walked into that class, a Kundalini Yoga class and boom..there she was and that was it and I hadn’t even started the class!  Whatever she was radiating I wanted it – it was love. 

Her face was shining, she looked healthy and spoke to us directly from the naval, dearly from the heart and clearly from her throat –  making an impact but also there was compassion and she seemed to deliver the teachings from a non personnel place, what I now know as the personally impersonal.  And more …throughout the class she sat still on her sheepskin not moving ,guiding me  on the start of my  journey home.  I was amazed at the quick transformation in myself . 

This gave me all that I needed at that time – a teacher to guide me, someone who had walked the path before me, someone who spoke to me honestly but did not pander to my ego.  I spent the next 4 years twice a week as a student before she encouraged me to do my teacher training back in 2003.    I have never looked back since…
