I’m a yoga-obsessed, ‘ex-PR company owner’ from London, now living in the country, far away from city life, trying to find what I like and create the life I want. Here I am as The Bedroom Yogi lunging forward, spreading Yogicity. I am wring this yoga blog from the West Midlands.
As mentioned above, I am trying to do my bit by brining good authentic ‘yogicity’ (made up word) and wellness to the area. This yoga blog from the West Midlands is about providing a resource to yoga-lovers and those hungry for wellness in sleepy (compared to a city) places. And to give my views on things relating to yoga and wellness.
Since I moved here in 2012 I have many times felt like a minority and so felt the need to hide parts of me away. Not amongst the yoga community of course. But being part of a yoga community here means you are a minority. Less so now because at least there are a couple of studios (there were none for the first few years I lived here). BUT I still would not consider them a community that I feel a part of.
Anyway, I don’t meet others like me much. I have to look hard for them. And in this blog I have decided to call us Bedroom Yogis which, to clarify, means hiding in the bedroom, not some kind of other weird practice.
My main personal goal in life (apart from raising my kids and being a good mum) is to have no actual goals and to end up in a beautiful place, preferably a hot place, doing yoga and being my authentic self. Practicing yogicity and feeling comfortable doing so, not hiding.
