What initially made you look for a yoga class, and roughly how long have you practised?
"I was initially looking for an exercise that would help me develop both physical strength and mental strength. I have now been practicing yoga for a year."
Had you ever practiced yoga before and if you did what made you stop?
"I had never practiced yoga before."
What do you feel benefits you the most from coming to classes?
"The benefits are a feeling of wellbeing, more energy and a feeling of strength."
Is there a part of yoga that you struggle with in particular, maybe a particular pose you don’t enjoy, or maybe the hardest pose of all, savasana?
"I tend to struggle with seated forward bends."
Since coming to classes have you ever bought any books on yoga, and if so which one/ones, and what did you learn from them?
"Yes, Chakra Yoga by Anodea Judith. I did not learn a lot as I tend to use the book as revision as to what we've done in yoga class".
Is there a particular pose that you feel benefits you above others and why? Do you have a favourite posture and why?
"Cobra pose as I have back issues. I feel this helps a great deal by reliving stiffness in my lower back."
Do you ever practice at home, or is it something you never find time for unless you come to a class?
"I do practice at home but not regular."
If people know about your yoga practice what’s their general reaction to it, and if you practiced a long time ago have people’s attitudes towards it changed nowadays?
"Most people’s general reaction is WHY?"
Was yoga something you never thought would be for you, and does it surprise you that you’re still taking classes after all this time?
"Yes, I thought it wouldn't be for me, but after trying yoga I was surprised how much I enjoyed it and now I really look forward to my yoga class. I just wish I had started when I was younger."
