Andrea Rimington joins us on this podcast to talk about how she discovered the love of Yoga and how now she teaches it, the following is from her website. The first time I took a yoga class I was very cross and impatient! I had a shoulder injury and yoga was the only “exercise” I could do.

I was frustrated at my body for being injured and letting me down. I resented HAVING to do a yoga class to get some exercise – I thought I would be laying down doing nothing. I certainly didn’t think that years later I’d be teaching it!

During that first class I found that yoga was quite challenging, and, more importantly, I found a few seconds where my mind just stopped…It was quite an amazing experience. My inner voice – that voice that tells me that “I can’t” or “I’m not enough” was for once quiet… 

Despite this revelation, I still felt I had to punish my body to stay “fit and healthy” and focused solely on the physical postures in my yoga classes, wanting to create picture-perfect poses – like those yoga pictures on Instagram.
