A few words from Janice
“I love practicing in the heat, I sweat more and release more toxins, plus the natural seasonal warmth in my muscles allows me to stretch much deeper and go much further without me really noticing it.
My practice over the years has taken many forms. When I first started yoga I was in and out, I'd a do a class here and there and then disappear for a while and then find yoga again. I always knew I loved the practice and even when I wasn't practicing I wished I was. After a few years of this and some life changes, something happened and my commitment to yoga became more firmly established. I started practicing more regularly and went from practicing once every now and then to practicing 3 or 4 times per week. The more I practiced the more fantastic I felt and the more my body became willing to do. I found myself with more energy, more positivity and more strength. I also discovered that I was a lot bendier than I could possibly have ever imagined. I found myself living for my yoga practice and traveling across London to the Sivananda centre in Putney to get my daily fix.
For a number of years I practiced this way and ultimately took my teachers training course in 2002. That was the beginning of a whole new level of practice. I started to teach and practice with vigour and for about 5 years I practiced daily without fail exploring and celebrating many of the dynamic and advanced poses. I would say they were some of the best days of my life to date. I found from my daily practice my body was flexible and strong and I had a power from within that I had certainly never experienced before. I was practicing scorpion in lotus, crescent moon with full arm variations, splits, 10 minute headstands, deep forward bends, pigeons, peacocks and more. In 2009 I took my advanced teacher training in India and Peter and I set up the Light Yoga Space.
Of course life ebbs and flows and circumstances change. Over the years my practice has slowly changed and so has my body. I have became much more involved in teaching and running the studio, and my practice has became more internal and less physical, more focused on devotional practices, working with my mind, teaching, pranayama and meditation, and less about asana. Nonetheless the power of those early years of intense practice has never gone away. I can still remember in the memory of my cells the bliss within of a powerful backward bend, a deep forward bend, a dynamic inversion or a super spinal twist. I still love teaching these poses and gently guiding students beyond what they think is ever possible. I love seeing my students experience the bliss of a strong yoga practice and the awakening of their prana (energy). My experience of becoming less physically dynamic personally, has in fact made me go much deeper into the relaxation and meditative aspects of yoga which now firmly guide my teaching style so my focus is never too dominated by the physical poses and is always supported and deeply guided by the breath and energy flow, proper relaxation, and concentration.
