I’ve had the domain for a while, and I’m now happy to say that with the help of my boyfriend Andrew, my new site clarehudson.yoga is now up and running.
l will still be writing on Thought Brick, but my new site will be a space for me to share what I have to offer as a yoga teacher, including yoga sessions and retreats (hopefully coming soon!), as well as exploring yoga philosophy in more depth, which is something important to me.
I remember the date I started my first yoga teacher training in London in 2014 and I had no idea who I wanted to teach or even where I’d be teaching. However, I always remember what my teacher Alex on my meditation teacher training said reassuringly — that you attract the students and classes that are right for you.
Part of me assumed I would be sending out my yoga CV to all the local gyms and yoga studios. However, soon after finishing my first TTC, I was asked by a couple if I could teach at their home, and for four months, I worked with just one couple, teaching them once a week, which taught me a lot. This way of teaching has now become my whole yoga business and was something I would never have thought about before.
I now teach people predominantly 1-1 and 1-2 throughout London, which allows me to really tailor what I’m teaching to each person. I’m also in the process of reflecting on and applying to my life all eight limbs of yoga, starting with the first Yama which is Ahimsa (non violence). I will then be writing about and finding new ways to weave in all 8 limbs of yoga to my yoga sessions — if this is something people would like to go into more depth with.
I’m excited to see how this website and my yoga teaching will evolve. Yoga retreats are on the cards, and further into the future I also like the idea of training for an additional two years as a yoga therapist or doing my Masters in the traditions of yoga and meditation, but one step at a time.
