Aston Colley - My Story

After 30 years in the corporate world I found my life going in ever- decreasing circles. Everything was related to cash flow, tax returns, and legalities. Important aspects I know, but as time went on I found I was relating to them less and less. I was keen to find another direction in life to stay motivated, discover my truest purpose, and not get eaten alive by fear.

I knew from my experience as a volunteer Samaritan how rewarding helping people could be, but realised even though I had 30 years background in business I would have to learn a completely new skill set.

So I sold my business and went back to college. I am now a qualified psychotherapist and yoga teacher.

At the same time I decided to put my ten year yoga practice centre stage, by completing the BWY foundation course and doing the BWY 3 year Teachers (QCF4) course.

So here I am (probably poorer from a money perspective) but richer as a person and appreciating more the wonder of life and other people.
