Mark took up yoga in 2016 taking a 6 week starter course in Ashtanga. He was immediately hooked and spent the next 4 years practicing Ashtanga, Hatha and Nidra. In September, 2020 Mark decided that after a 30 years sales career it was time to change direction and started Season Yoga Teacher Training. In August 2021 Mark will qualify as a 200 hour RYT. He still works in sales as a freelance consultant.
Seasonal Yoga is a style of Yoga which is designed to align you with the changing energies of nature and the seasons. A practice that improves physical strength and flexibility and brings balance and harmony to your life. The concept was created in 1995 by Julie Hanson and Sue Woodd as an antidote to the stress and anxiety of modern life. It combines Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Kung and a modern understanding about body movement, with Traditional Chinese Medicine ideas about the changing nature of the seasons around us, and within.
Mark has a daily Hatha practice, which includes meditation, and is passionate about quietening the mind and working with breath to help students deal with the always-on world.
