Hello, my name is Janey Bowyer and I run The Word Sprite Blog. The place for inspiring articles, yoga and holistic solutions to modern living. A sprite is a kind of fairy, and some say I remind them of one! I grew up on a hill in the north of England. From a young age, I wanted to live in London. As a child, during the depths of night, I’d often listen to the hum of the trains. Until one day in my late teens, I bought a one-way ticket and travelled to London with just £30.00 in my pocket. ‘London never rests, she thinks. It’s on speed. A vortex, absorbing everything. Running from its own stench but also basking in it. Seemingly superficial and plastic to those not enchanted by its ambivalent charms. London has a soul; a ravenous appetite that feeds on the egos of the thousands that flock here each day to get closer to their dreams. ‘ Janey Bowyer Not long after moving to London, yoga and writing graced my life. I think they both saved me. I wasn’t very good at either. Dyslexia and lack of flexibility and poor posture were my obstacles. I could see beyond that though as both yoga and writing offered me hope and possibilities that before this I hadn’t ever thought possible. Before yoga and writing I believed I was useless and had nothing to offer the world. So I worked hard at studying for more than a decade. The author John Harding was the first teacher to believe in me. After studying writing under his inspiring tuition, I managed to get a few novels published along the way. On the yoga side, I studied both Hatha and later Kundalini yoga and despite not being naturally flexible nor a person who liked to sit still. It was in India back in 2004 that I had my first awakening experience. During all this time, I also worked full time doing office work until I left to become The Word Sprite! The silver lining in all of this is through my personal experience of having to be creative with my time I came up with the concept of offering yoga, meditation and holistic solutions aimed at modern day living. Hence, this is how The Word Sprite was born!
