My first

As I take you back to the first time I really started practising yoga, I also write my first post on the home I have been dreaming about for years.

Since a young age I was always fighting with some form of health issue, if it wasn’t eczema it was severe asthma or my allergies.

I was in and out of the hospital in my early life with treatment to help me fight my autoimmune disorders, and the older I got the more fed up I got with it all.

As I went through adolescence my body calmed down but then in my second year of university everything came back; my eczema flared up again, my asthma and allergies became bad and my studies were affected.

I never really found anything to rid my symptoms, I tried almost everything from homoeopathic remedies to allopath steroids, it just never stopped. In 2012 just after I had serious knee surgery, I started practising hot Bikram Yoga; I had dabbled with other forms of yoga which really helped reduce my symptoms, but it was the hot yoga that really gave me that edge, both physically and mentally.

Once I started this new journey, I knew it was something I would continue with for the rest of my life. And if I knew all I needed was some heat, a yoga mat, my body and some fantastic teachers I would have started years back. 

6 years on and living yoga as a way of life and I have finally released the website I have been conceptualising from the day I started. 

The aim of this space is to provide as many people as possible with insights and knowledge on my journey, all forms and types of yoga itself and all the fantastic people and stories I have connected with and connect with on this lifelong journey.

I welcome you to surajyoga.com, your home for all things yoga.

Thanks for reading.
