Learn more about Jade the Yoga Instructor
Jade has always been fairly active, having completed her PT course and started regularly practising yoga in her early 20s.
Jade is an RYT200hr Yoga Instructor & Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing & Personal Training. Yoga has been a part of Jade’s life from a young age; she was often found in her Mum’s yoga books copying positions. However, she fully fell in love with yoga when she was on a beautiful retreat in Costa Rica in 2017. At this time she was in a fast-moving, stressful office job and had been feeling the physical effects that stress can have on the body. She realised the possibility of a better life for herself. As she was observing her yoga teacher she realised that she could choose a career that meant she got to look after her own body while also helping other people. So, she began to plot her escape from the office. This was when she first decided she was going to try and become a yoga teacher.
Jade took her yoga teaching training course in Koh Phangan, Thailand. She described her time here as one of the hardest but most rewarding experiences she has achieved in her life. Now, Jade has over 400 hours of teaching experience and has done add-on courses, such as Prenatal Teacher Training, which allows her to guide safe adjustments for people during their pregnancy.
‘I love how yoga is so much more than just a physical practice; it’s for the body, the mind, and the soul. Yogic philosophy which I find fascinating often talks about moral and ethical observations of oneself, it’s like a guidebook to leading a pure and fulfilled life.’
Why is yoga good for you?
By moving with awareness, we are strengthening the mind-body connection, which means we can move with more ease. Within our practice, we can build strength and flexibility, which in turn helps to avoid injuries. It has positive mental health benefits as well as helping us gain focus and a positive mindset.
How often should someone do yoga?
It’s called your yoga ‘practice’ as it’s exactly that. The more you put in, the more you get back. Finding time can be hard, but you will never regret rolling out your mat. There is a famous quote that I like by K Pattabhi Jois:
“Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory.“
How has it impacted your life?
‘It’s got me through some hard times and helps build resilience. I get fulfilment and joy from helping other people and sharing this practice is a good way for me to give service to others.’
“Yoga is the practice of quietening the mind”
When is the last time you just stopped and took a deep breath? Maybe I just reminded you… We breathe every day unconsciously, but when we place awareness in the breath, we can start to use it as a tool. Breathwork can help reduce stress and inflammation in the body and can help calm the mind.
The physical practice paired with the breathwork has numerous health benefits, including reducing anxiety and improving sleep. Many people assume it’s about being flexible; however, this is just one of many benefits you can reap from regular practice.
“By cultivating attitudes of friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and disregard toward the wicked, the mind-stuff retains its undisturbed calmness.”
– Sutra 33 The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
