A Surry Hills man has taken the brave step of getting the word ‘namaste’ emblazoned on his chest, after discovering an interest in yoga last month.
“When I started doing yoga during Covid, my life changed forever,” says Dean Marshall. “Yoga is not a lifestyle, it’s a life.”
‘Namaste’ is a Hindu greeting, meaning ‘I bow to you’. It’s commonly used by yoga instructors at the end of class.
“When I first heard my instructor say it I felt so uplifted,” says Marshall. “I could feel something change in my soul.”
“I wanted to hold onto that moment forever by getting it tattooed on my chest.”
It comes after the 29 year old purchased a six class pack to his local yoga studio for $140.
Although he wouldn’t be drawn on whether he would be getting a full membership to the yoga studio.
“I’m not sure I can afford it yet,” he says. “We’ll just have to wait and see how long I can stay on the Job Keeper allowance.”
More to come.
