“It was with great trepidation that I signed up to a yoga class. I have been practicing tai chi on and off for 20 years but, as with a lot of things as you get older, my knees were finding it tough. Plus I had reached a point where I needed to find that quiet space inside. What with a hectic job and two small kids, I was in dire need of some ‘me time’.

My wife handed me a flyer for Yoga for Blokes and it piqued my interest. I had been thinking about a yoga class but had no idea where to start. I felt this workshop could provide the ideal opportunity to ‘dip the toe’ and I would be with other blokes, so the potential embarrassment levels could be greatly reduced!

The evening (Friday) arrived and it was welcome. I had had a tough meeting in the midlands and it had taken nearly five hours to get home, so I was tired and stressed. Also apprehensive about what to expect but excited to try something new.

I arrived and was met by Chloe McKay, the teacher, at the door. Instantly, I was reassured with a smile and advice on where to go, what to do with my coat and shoes. Now feeling more relaxed I made my way upstairs to the studio. The mats were already laid out and I sat down. Now some of the apprehension returned. Thoughts, like “what do I do if I have to put my leg behind my head?” “What if I trump??” “Could I sneak out if it’s going badly?” Etc, etc…

I didn’t need to worry, Chloe instantly calmed my thoughts, with her gentle words and instructions. The session was run at an easy pace, where you could practice the posture and not feel like an uncoordinated baby giraffe. Chloe would approach and ask if it was ok to help you into a position or offer advice. For me, I now felt like this was something achievable. Something not too daunting. Something that I wouldn’t embarrass myself with, which is pretty important!!

I was really enjoying it but, as they say, all good things have to end and it did with the relaxation section. Wow! This just rounded out the session. I felt so calm and relaxed… and happy too! I was over the moon that I had had such a great experience.”
