This book is a definitive visual dictionary that encapsulates the ideal way for moderately and highly active people to maximize the results of their training regimen.
I have to say that from a personal point of view I feel very pleased that Lexie Williamson has written the Stretching Bible.
When I met Lexie when she started to train as a Yoga Teacher with me over ten years ago, I knew Lexie wanted to share the wealth of knowledge she has gained with her fellow athletes. Lexie already made great tracks with her previous two books Yoga for Runners and Yoga for Cyclists.
However this new book reaches so much further and is a boon for many different areas of sport and beyond including stretches before bed and for children too.
I went to the Oxford dictionary to find the definitions:
Stretch: Straighten or extend one's body or a part of one's body to its full length, typically so as to tighten one's muscles or in order to reach something.
Bible: informal A book regarded as authoritative in a particular sphere.
Middle English: via Old French from ecclesiastical Latin biblia, from Greek (ta) biblia ‘(the) books’, from biblion ‘book’, originally a diminutive of biblos ‘papyrus, scroll’, of Semitic origin.
Lexie’s book is authoritative and this new book reaches so much further and is a boon for many different areas of sport and beyond. I am going to Review this book in greater detail so watch this space!
We at Yoga Teacher Training Ibiza are thrilled to introduce outré new recent Graduate Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher 200 Hours Sian.
Sian discovered yoga following a serious back injury snowboarding. She realised that in order to maintain strength and mobility she needed to practice yoga daily. She then discovered yIn and restorative as a way to recover herself from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She holds a degree in psychology, words as a health and nutrition coach and spends as much time as possible snowboarding, mountain biking & surfing.
Sian trained as a 200hr yoga Alliance teacher at Yogashalaibiza. As well as learning about the vast history of yoga through the ages, she also learned about the importance of empathy and alignment when going students trough their practice. She particularly enjoyed increasing her baseline knowledge of anatomy & physiology and how it relates to yoga. The practice of relaxation is one she feels is of particular importance in the modern world.

So I arrived in Ibiza in a campervan, with all the family and dog in search of a more meaningful and connected life........ and I got it!
Leaving our home behind in London I realised it was hard to lose the London girl in me and to jump in to find new purpose, new direction, new aspirations, new friends and build a life for us all.
On a personal level having become a Yoga teacher in 2011 and taught in a busy Hot Yoga studio and having had a variety of yoga styles on my doorstep to immerse myself in, I wondered.... 'Where was my yoga journey going to take me??'
After some time out to be mama I was ready to be inspired and to then inspire others and what better place to start but in Ibiza I thought...? On a island with very educated yogi's and a sea of 200hr teachers... Hhmmm?
Then I found Jacqueline and Yogashala which sparked my inspiration and woohoo my new yoga journey began!
Her wise words and immense knowledge motivated me to delve deeper into my yoga studies and I began my 500hr TT. Our relationship began and continues as my teacher, my friend and my guiding light.
As my training continues with Yogashala over a year I have the pleasure and honour of being one of her teachers and assisting on the Yogashala 200hr TT and occasionally covering the classes at Galeria Elephante and Garden of Joy.
My aspirations now are to be the best person I can be for my family and to transcend all this in my class mixed with continued learning, harmony and sprinkled with a lot of love.
With big thanks to my husband my 2 babies and to Jacqueline Annabelle Purnell for being the best teachers I could wish for.
