I remember when I first started training to be able to teach Yoga and Meditation, I had no idea how out of my depth I felt, how much I didn’t know, yet there I was – addicted! I was obsessed with the feeling that moving and breathing gave me. It was something that I had never experienced before and something that I never wanted to lose: infact I wanted to share it with the world.
Over the last 5 years the industry has changed a lot. Social media has allowed people to prioritise personal gain, and so sometimes I see the message getting lost. We got into this business to serve other people, to allow them to experience the feeling we learnt to create for ourselves and surely nothing else matters.
With more experience of course comes more of an understanding of the individuals that can be in your class: never take for granted that person walking in for the first time, since they may be at the start of a journey to better themselves. Be there as a friend, as a guide, not a teacher or guru. Understanding the difference in people is what led me realise that I needed to create something for the people that were not yet confident enough to walk into a studio.
This is where corporate well-being comes in. There is nothing more humbling than standing infront of 150 employees, who may never have had the opportunity to mediate in their life, yet they are all there together. The first session is always so interesting to me as we are all getting used to each others energy, sometimes the boardroom is transformed into a meditation suite, the lights are off, it is a totally different environment for employees and just me, talking about my passion and trying to share my gift. They come into that room with an open mind and put their trust into me that I am going to give them an experience that could be the start to a fundamental shift in their well-being.
The amazing feedback after the session from the person that has never had the confidence to go to a meditation studio, or the person that was signed off with stress, is the thing that keeps my passion alive. Through my bespoke well-being packages I am working with some of the top tech, fashion and finance companies in the UK to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to create that feeling for themselves too, and we are able to take some of the stress out of the working environment.
Who knows where it could take you…
