When I started this blog back in 2008 I had no idea what to call it. Then a name emerged which has stuck more or less ever since. Even though the banner (I think that’s what you call it) reads ‘Sarada Gray’ the URL is lizardyoga.wordpress.com, which takes some explaining. The yoga part is quite straightforward: I spent much of my working life teaching yoga and training other yoga teachers and even though I don’t teach any more yoga is still an important part of my life.
The lizard part comes from a nickname. I’ve never attracted many nicknames in my life: it may be a gender thing (men tend to have more nicknames than women) or it may be a personality thing; whatever the reason, ‘The Lizard’ was practically the only nickname I ever had, being a combination of my name and Lizard Point in Cornwall (where lived the friends who conferred on me this sobriquet.)
Somehow or another these two elements put themselves together and made lizardyoga, which has stuck with me.
As has the sign-off…
