Q&A with Davin JonesWhere are you from originally and where do you live now?
I was born in Brecon, Wales. I grew up in Powys, mid Wales. I currently live in Doha, Qatar.Please tell us about your story and why you do what you do.
Having started my traveling days in 2011, my travels took me to south east Asia, Australia and eventually Mexico. It was in Mexico 2013 that I went to my first yoga class. I was looking for a new direction in life, and yoga decided to show itself at this time. I was fascinated by the physical challenge of the practice, so much that I made my way to India, where I lived and studied yoga for 3 months living in an ashram in Lax Manjula, Rishikesh. This is where I trained to be a yoga teacher. My world changed from here, as my previous work in life was working on building sites as an electrician, so finding yoga and becoming a teacher opened up so many doors that I was fortunate enough to get opportunities teaching in India, London and eventually leading retreats, trainings and yoga events internationally. Yoga has given me the direction I longed for and more. My passion is my teaching and my teaching is my passion. This is my giving back to what Yoga has given me.How do you look after your physical and mental health ?
Thousands of hours of getting to know my body through a yoga practice has given me the awareness to know when my body and mind is asking for a particular movement or rest. Navigating these two polarities sustains my mental health. I'll often use meditation as a tool for my mind.Tell us one of your life hacks.
