Hi I’m Ross, also known as “Yogi P”.
I have been teaching in some capacity for over 10 years as a personal trainer, spin instructor or yogi, having also spent valuable time travelling and learning at university. Music is a huge part of my life too; operating under the same alias as Yogi P, I am in my 2nd year of releasing my own music in the genre of deep house, as well as working as a DJ.
Once I graduated from Cardiff Met Uni I returned to my hometown Hereford, where I found some difficulties within myself that I had not had to face before. I became fascinated with books that focussed on self observation and awareness such as Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power Of Now” & inspirational reads such as Paolo Coellho’s “The Alchemist” & enlightened people as the Dalai Llama.
It was through these readings of mindful teachings that I found yoga, a practice that could encompass these important values and principles. The practices of yoga and meditation pulled me out of that dark place with the fascination to use these tools to better myself, enhancing my effectiveness as a human being and my view on life with the opportunities it holds for us.
I left my job as manager in a gym to go to South Goa, India to get the required training needed to be able to pass on my experiences through the pathway of being a yoga teacher, combining both my physical background with my newly found mindset and fascination with mindfulness.
Upon returning home from India I set up my brand and have been running my own yoga classes ever since. I've received a warming amount of positive support and feedback so far, and feel grateful and hugely rewarded to call this my job.
