John Collins teaches dynamic Vinyasa Yoga all over London. He has been practising Yoga for over 15 years.
I stumbled across Yoga in 2000 whilst living and working in America. A great friend of mine had been practicing Ashtanga for some time and asked if I fancied joining him the next morning at 6am... To this day I'm not sure why I said yes, as getting up before anyone else to practice Yoga in a friend's garage was certainly not my usual morning routine. But, bleary eyed, I stepped onto the mat and have never looked back.
A regular practice brings with it so much; focus, health, determination, a real knowledge of the self, strength of mind as well as body, and a profound connection with others. Starting Yoga 17 years ago has undoubtedly changed my life. My body, diet and most importantly mind have all changed, I think Yoga is, quite literally, magic.
5 years ago, thanks to my incredible wife, I made another yoga discovery. She asked me if I fancied (here we go again) taking a class with a brilliant teacher she'd found... I have been practising with Stewart Gilchrist ever since and am indebted to him for his wonderful teaching, encouragement and commitment to yoga. When I discovered that Stewart was to direct the teacher training at The Power Yoga Company, I knew I had to take the leap and do my best to become a teacher... one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Outside of my family, Yoga is my greatest love. I will be forever grateful to all the people who have taught me and everyone I've had the privilege to practice with. My aim is to teach an authentic, challenging Yoga class with good humour and love.
