What initially made you look for a yoga class, and roughly how long have you practised?

"My husband saw a poster advertising Yoga classes and we thought it would be good to try it together as we're now both retired. We've been practicing about a year now."

Had you ever practiced yoga before and if you did what made you stop?

"No, I had never practiced Yoga before. I wish I'd started years ago."

What do you feel benefits you the most from coming to classes?

"I enjoy how the classes make me feel energized but also my body feels relaxed."

Men and Yoga

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?

"The hardest pose for me (I find it nearly impossible) is sitting 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?

"We bought Chakra Yoga. I mostly just used it to remind me of some of the poses I learned in class whenever I practice at home."

Is there a particular pose that you feel benefits you above others and why? Do you have a favourite posture and why?

"I particularly like the Cat Pose it just makes my back feel so nice and I like Downward Dog. I have very tight leg muscles and it's good to feel the stretch in the back of my legs."

What do you enjoy least about yoga

Do you ever practice at home, or is it something you never find time for unless you come to a class?

"I have done some practice at home but I should try to do more. It is about getting the time."

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?

My family all know I go to yoga classes – they think it’s good.

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?

"I never thought I would get into Yoga but now after a year I hate it when I have to miss my Yoga class."
