Welcome to our new Yogi of the Month feature.
Over the coming months we will be featuring different students from Yoga on Tay and asking them to talk about their Yoga practice.
For our first Yogi of the Month article, one of our newly qualified teachers, Jo Mitchell talks with a regular Yoga on Tay attendee, Lynsey and how Iyengar Yoga fits into her life.
The interview was recorded in January 2021 during lockdown over Zoom.
Yogi of the Month January 2021 Lynsey
Here is a transcription of the interview below:
Jo: Welcome to our first Yogi of the month interview. We are here with one of our long standing students at Yoga on Tay; Lynsey. So we have a couple of questions for you that I’ll just run through.
So Lynsey when did you start yoga?
Lynsey: Well I started yoga properly with Julie back in either March or April 2015 so it’s been nearly 6 years that I have been going to classes with Julie (Anderson). I had attended classes before that but it was fairly informal, odd classes at Eden Court but nothing consistent or no weekly practice before that.
Jo: Can you remember much about your first class?
Lynsey: Sure so Julie was teaching in the White Rooms in Dundee at the time. I think there was maybe 5 of us in the class so it was quite a small class. It was quite a small room. I had gone along with a couple of my friends who had started going because I had always wanted to get into yoga properly. It has always been on the periphery of my life and I knew it was something I really wanted to do so I had gone along with a couple of friends to try it out. I still remember the atmosphere of the room and just came out of the first class going “this is great, this is what I needed, this is what I wanted!”
