Hi! I’ve always had a passion for making videos and telling people’s stories. I gained qualifications in Media Studies and Video Production and worked as a presenter, voice-over artist and video editor. I will be sharing yoga by video on Yoga for All Men. I’m a keen writer who has a hunger for knowledge.
I have practised yoga intermittently for several years, after becoming hooked in the late 1990s. Having quickly got over being the only male in classes I persevered to continue improving my health and well-being. Now there’s a stronger male presence in yoga classes but not enough reading material that men can find, unless their female partners buy yoga magazines, or they bravely buy the magazines themselves—and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this.
Today my practice consists of private practice at home, attending a early morning classes and I qualified as a Level 1 yoga teacher in 2015.
I set up Yoga for All Men because there isn’t much information available in existing material, and because there’s a perception that yoga is for women—current yoga magazines are found in the women’s interests section of newsagents and with female-orientated covers, supporting this concept. So it’s time to disperse the myths.
