Who is Gemma Skells?
Gemma is a Yoga convert and was a keen fitness enthusiast! Weight lifting was a large part of her regimen. Gemma tried her first yoga class in 2008 after reading an article in a fitness magazine called stretch for strength.
She wanted to improve her Olympic lifts, flexibility and reduce muscle hardening so began attending one Hatha class per week at my local leisure centre. Little did she know that four years later she would have almost completely swapped the gym for the yoga mat!
"Like many other people, I started to notice the "feel good" feeling. Not just the physical benefits of a regular yoga practice but also the more subtle (and not at first obvious) improvements to my health, wellbeing and sense of self worth".
These are just a few of the many beneficial aspects which have fed her interest and love for yoga ever since. So much so that she began her journey of becoming a teacher in November 2013 with the British Wheel of Yoga.
