Poolside yoga in the south of France

In late 2013, I went on a weekend away to the Dordogne region in the South of France with some colleagues from work. We did little else but eat, drink and lie by the pool. But after a day of laziness, I needed to expend some excess energy and so roped a few people into joining me for a yoga class by the pool.

I’d been practising Bikram yoga for about 3 years at this point and knew the sequence fairly well and so I led the class with a made-up version of the dialogue and my own demonstrations of the poses.

It was then that I got my first taste of teaching and I was hooked! I went back to London and started a saving plan, trying out several studio open days around the city until I stumbled upon the one that suited me best – Hot Power Yoga. I loved the studio, the teachers, the atmosphere and so what better place to start my own teaching journey!
