1.  Yoga teaches you patience.

Sometimes it may take years of patience but you learn to appreciate the journey and see where it

will take you.

2. Yoga breeds perseverance and teaches you not to give up easily.

If you set your mind on something, chances are that you will get there. It's about will. You learn not to give up.

3. Yoga triggers your personal challenges and makes you want to overcome your personal fears.

Many yoga postures challenge our comfort zone and make us overcome our personal boundaries.

4. Yoga helps you work on self-discipline.

Yes the teacher inspires you but you have to do everything else on your own.

5. Yoga deepens your focus and concentration.

You'll often catch yourself gazing away, checking out your fellow yogi's pose, going through your 'to do' list for the day

...... but no ! You are the only one who has to bring yourself again into the focus of your practice for correct body form and breath.

6. Yoga improves body awareness.

All the muscles are moving and you become closer to your body awareness. Finding out your level of flexibility and how to protect yourself from injuries.

7. Yoga increases self-confidence a whole lot better.

By attaining a state of consciousness, arriving little by little to your own personal goals, you actually feel a whole lot

better and more confident about yourself.

8. Yoga helps you overcome difficult situations and reduces stress by using your breath.

In yoga you will learn different ways of breathing, that when used appropriately will help you to reduce stress, calm down and to be aware in the present moment. You will learn that by sending mentally, your breath to a place that has tension or hurts, that you can help to release this tension and that you can use this aspect in your daily stressful routine.

9. You come closer to your own self-realisation.

It is very precious to actually be able to dedicate time to your passion and deeper wishes, which helps us to come closer to realising our needs and trying to accomplish them.

10. Yoga helps you to love yourself as a whole.

All the above reasons lead you down to the following path: you get to know and accept your body, it's limitations, boundaries, potential and you end up loving yourself even more in it's whole: body, mind, soul, by coming closer to your real self.

Yoga offers you this chance. It also allows you to take all theses benefits with you and to apply them outside the mat into your daily life.

The 7 Summits is about a Cornishman climbing the highest points on each continent.  Coming from his native Cornwall he sets of on a wonderful journey spanning fifteen years experiencing many thrills and triumphs.  Going from continent to continent as well as the challenge I experience many cultural changes very much different from Cornwall.  May I add some very inhospitable moments!  At the end of each challenge Cornwall as been my sanctuary, recuperation, reflection on returning conquests.

Coming from a humble back ground my journey has been a hobby with his everyday job of working for the Royal Mail the source of income.  There have been no huge sponsors or television coverage.  In fact I have even found some time to raise some money for the British Heart Foundation.  The inspiration, motivation, desire have all come from within.  There have been no life coaches, dieticians and fitness coaches.

When I climbed Everest in 2011 I had the motivation of becoming the First Cornishman up the highest mountain in the world.  I was awarded the honour of Exceptional Endeavour in 2013 by the Cornish Gorsedh.  The motivation then was to complete the 7 Summits and write this book.

There have been setbacks along the way.  The book starts off with a setback with Kilimanjaro being the inspiration for getting back on my feet again.  There are further setbacks along the way.  Notably a near death experience!  First time summits are always good.  On the bigger climbs of Aconcagua, Denali, Cho oyu and Everest I was fortunate in attaining that distinction.  Many do not for whatever reason.  I often use the motto, “Mountains live for another day you have only one life.”

The conquering of Everest saw the birth of my mountaineering talks.  It gives me a tremendous amount of satisfaction sharing with others my achievements.  I have talked to many groups, gone into schools and presented at awards ceremonies.  Certainly an area I’m keen to do more of.

The best piece of advice I can give people is plan and prepare beforehand.  Read, seek advice, discussing potential hazards along the way.  When it comes to training train hard but always give the time for your body to rest.

I joined the Tamar Trotters in 2012 meeting many different people from all walks of life.  Initially when I first joined it was said to me that I would never get from running what I have got from mountaineering.  I have often thought about that comment.  It may very well be true but I always try at any event.  Currently I am training for the London Marathon.
