Having practiced yoga since the early 1980's, I have now been teaching for more than twenty years. Yoga has been an invaluable tool for me- maintaining a sense of wellbeing, physically, mentally and emotionally.

In 1994 I qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga - the largest yoga organization in the U.K. and have since gone on to do further training . My approach to asana has been influenced by working with well respected teachers , Peter Blackaby and John Stirk who draw on their knowledge from osteopathy, to encourage practice that focuses on the natural alignment of the body. Utilizing the role of the breath to create movement and release tension is also key in refining awareness and promoting a sense of well- being.

I teach a wide variety of classes and also offer one to ones or very small groups - this can really give the opportunity to tailor the practice to individual needs.

As a Diploma course tutor with the British Wheel of Yoga for nearly twenty years , I enjoy nurturing students as well as promoting the skills and knowledge necessary to gain the teaching qualification. I have run a number of teacher training courses both in Essex and Sussex and co- tutored BWY Integration courses.
