I’ve decided that our media-driven world needs to reshape the way society views the practice of Yoga and the people who practice it..it’s not just hot, young people performing crazy acrobatics! So I’m countering it by posting what real Yoga looks like with some true Yogins and Yoginis that hail right here in little old Adelaide. Each week I’m asking them the same questions so you all can get an insight as to why Yoga is for everyBODY!
Ai started her practice just over a year ago here at Go Yoga and has really jumped right in. She attends all 3 beginners vinyasa classes almost every week and has just recently started up Spiritual Warrior classes for the disciplined practice they instill. Yet, discipline is not something she is lacking – although a busy mum to the sassy but adorable Minnie (3 years old), Ai is always the first to arrive to class and finds her peace in sukhasana pose while everyone else piles in. Over summer you’ll recognise her as the Frangipani Yogini, petite and exotic with the sweet smelling white flowers in her hair. Read about her Yoga story…
What drew you to begin practicing Yoga?
I was originally drawn to Yoga as I was looking for something to help me de stress and to seek relief from my busy everyday life, especially with my young toddler. I was also in need for inner peace at that time.
What is your favourite class and why do you keep a regular practice?
My current favourite class is the Beginners Vinyasa class, as I would like to learn the basic poses properly before I go onto the more advanced classes. I keep my regular practice to stay physically and mentally fit, and of course to be Happy!
Have the philosophies and/or practical practice of Yoga penetrated your daily life and if you, how?
In your view is Yoga for everyBODY?
