Find out what top influencers and yoga teachers say about what they wish they’d known before they started yoga. Sumaiya Shaikh asked me to take part in the article and here’s what I said:

What is the one thing you wish you knew before you started yoga?

I wish I’d known that every bad bit of your life can make you a great yogi and teacher. Sometimes we think yoga is for the perfect people, actually the opposite is true – yoga is best for those who are ready to change. It’s OK to be a bit broken and battered by life. It’s only when you’ve been through tough stuff that you realise what a powerful tool yoga is for both mind and body. When you know this for yourself it changes your practice and teaching.  Transforming your own life can lead you to take that healing to others. That’s a great blessing.
