Didn’t come this far just to come this far.

Things don’t always work out as you planned do they?


Not too long ago I was horribly unhappy in a job that was syphoning the life energy out of me. On top of my main job, I was teaching yoga a couple of nights a week and I was convinced that I could make a reasonable living if I went full time. I can remember sitting on a beach in Cornwall talking it over with my wife, and we decided to go for it.


Things went from strength to strength, and soon I was teaching 12 classes a week. I was feeling physically and mentally healthy for the first time in a long time, enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate.


Then Covid hit, and like so many other small businesses I was left with zero income as we went into lockdown and other restrictions. As we have yo-yoed back and forward over the last couple of years, the obvious (and certainly financially sensible) option was to close my business and go back to a 9 to 5; even maybe my old line of work - perish the thought!


But I didn’t come this far just to come this far.*


I truly believe that Chi Living Yoga brings positive change into peoples’ lives. So I will continue to grow, and adapt, and learn, and push forward to share my vision of helping people to ‘uncover the positive and the peaceful in the midst of the difficult & the hectic.’

Namaste
