Yoga for me has been essential to maintaining pain free movement, which has enabled me to continue to train and achieve the fitness goals I regularly set myself. As a specialist in training the over 40s, I understand how important flexibility and mobility is to improve strength, fitness and overall health.
A DVD I released in 2018 entitled “Fit at 40 plus” provides a number of tools on improving overall conditioning and combines weight training with HIIT training and yoga.
I have had an unusual route to practicing yoga and gong baths. Having spent my teenage years as a champion Bodybuilder and Strength athlete, I started yoga to improve my conditioning and athleticism for The Gladiators. During this time, I won a number of competitions including achieving the World Record for lifting Dinnie Stones from the floor for the longest duration in 2019.
Several years ago, whilst travelling in Bali I went to a gong bath and was completely mesmerised. I felt such an incredible feeling of relaxation and stress leaving my body and saw an immediate improvement in my sleeping patterns. This has resulted in improving my overall health and well-being. Since these experiences, I started studying more around gong baths and other healing instruments and have been teaching them to others ever since.
