Meet Christina, Engineer working on environmental software
Christina attends the General Yoga class on Thursday evenings
What brought you to yoga? Curiosity as my sister had been to a couple of classes and enjoyed them, also trying to find a form of exercise that would fit into a busy schedule of work and other activities.
How long have you been practising, in general and with Rosanna? Since Spring 2012, with some gaps. I started in Rosanna’s class at St Paul’s, have since attended other classes in addition or substitution but most consistently with Rosanna.
How do you feel from coming to the classes? Physically stronger in my upper body and core, better balance, still pretty inflexible. Mentally slightly calmer.
Do you have a favourite yoga posture/practice â€“ and why? Anything not involving forward fold! I like the warrior poses, as I found them initially accessible and have continued to learn refinement and variants to add challenge.
What impact does yoga have on your life, in general and day-to-day? It’s a good physical antidote to a sedentary computer-based job. Better balance gives me more confidence on ladders for DIY or gardening. I try to remember the basic postural aspects at work and in music practice.
Are you a Student at Rosannaâ€™s classes? Happy to answer a few questions? Iâ€™d love to hear from you! Please share a bit about your journey to, and experiences on the mat by getting in touch here.
