Yoga found me quite by chance and has been my companion ever since.
A quest for deeper understanding led me to the BWY Foundation Course (2005-6) during which I became inspired to share the joys and benefits of yoga with others.
In 2007 I embarked on the three-year BWY Teacher’s Diploma Course, studying anatomy and physiology, asana (poses), pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, philosophy, and teaching skills.
I set up my first class in 2008. Since then my teaching portfolio has expanded to include a diverse student cohort as my confidence and experience has grown which, now includes successfully delivering lessons live online in response to Covid 19 pandemic.
Since my qualification in 2010, I have continued to deepen my knowledge and practice through the BWY Continuous Professional Development programme and private study. I am privileged to receive expert tuition from specialists such as Peter Blackaby, Lesley Dike and Dr Ruth Gilmore (Anatomy and Physiology); Philip Xerri (Breath Control); Maarten Vermaase (Meditation); Swamis Satyprakesh and Krishnapremananda (Subtle Body); How to Teach Yoga on Line (Institute for Yoga Sport Science). I have an enhanced DBS Certificate (children & adults) and Safeguarding Everyone Course (Children, Young People, Adults at Risk) Certificate (Aug 2020). In March 2022 I became a Mental Health First Aider (MHFA England). I am currently learning how better to support myself and other women to prepare for and navigate a healthy pathway through The Menopause with grateful thanks to Petra Coveney, BWY Senior Teacher and Trainer, for inspiring me.
I look forward to sharing my love and fascination for yoga with you.
