I started yoga at the behest of various physios and personal trainers. My initial drivers were flexibility and conditioning - very much in the physical sphere. I run my own company in London and have 2 small children, so the ability to practice at home with a qualified instructor very much appealed and after a couple of internet searches Brighten Up Yoga seemed to offer a reasonably priced solution.
As I progressed through Brighten Up Yoga sessions, a big surprise was the mental and emotional benefits that I began to get. Better sleep, less stress and an awareness of the body and mind that you can apply to a variety of elements of a busy and active life. To be honest these were unintended consequences of my practice, but in actual fact have become the reason I continue in my yoga journey.
For me the ability to practice at home, 1 on 1, is key as I get much more from the session than if I was in a group and it is tailored to my own limitations and strengths.
Practicing with Beth from Brighten Up is now a 'must do' activity in my diary and we schedule weekly sessions up to 3 months in advance.
From a skeptic to a believer in less than 6 months - I can thoroughly recommend Brighten Up Yoga to help you deal with the stresses and strains of life and improve overall wellbeing!
