I have been teaching since 1990 and have trained with the Inner Yoga Trust
www.inneryoga.org.uk. During my 30 years of teaching I have also practiced as a visual
artist and as a therapeutic masseuse. I draw inspiration from many international teachers, in particular; Angela Farmer, Victor Van Kooten and Vanda Scaravelli. All my inspiring teachers, including my Mother, have originally studied with B. K.S. Iyengar in India. However, all have moved away from his school of teaching to develop their own unique and intuitive approach with an emphasis on embodied experience. More recently I have studied with Francoise Freedman, founder of Birthlight; specialising in Yoga for Menopause, exploring somatic movement to nourish the whole person. I am currently expanding my experience and understanding of our energetic systems with Donna Eden and Prune Harris, respectively the founder and a faculty member of Energy Medicine.
My journey with Yoga began as a child with my mother, Maureen. Out of this joyful exploration, Yoga inspired me and has played a central part in my personal growth and search
for spiritual roots. My life experience, which has often been very challenging, has given me a deep appreciation for the connection between the mind and emotions, the breath, the energetic body and the physical body. I see my practice and teaching as a healing art.
I love wildlife and am a big fan of as I sense how our personal ecology and sense of well being is linked to our natural environment. We are part of the web of life.
