I am a qualified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and have been teaching since 2003.  In 2006 and 2013, I attended classes at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where I studied with BKS Iyengar and members of the Iyengar family.
 
I regularly attend workshops with senior teachers to update my skills and I currently hold the Iyengar Yoga Junior Intermediate Level 3 Certificate. I also hold a BA Honours Degree in Theatre Studies and qualified with ITEC in Anatomy, Physiology and Massage in 1998.

 

I have professional membership of the Iyengar Yoga Association (IYA UK) and The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS).

Prior to teaching yoga, I taught aerobic exercise, modern jive dancing and have a wide experience in teaching and performing.  I am also a trainer in, inter-personal skills, presentation skills and communications.  My practical experience and knowledge of exercise, dance and aromatherapy massage enables me to take a holistic approach to teaching and clients.  My work in the fields of teaching, inter-personal skills training and in management, has offered me a full and varied career in a service industry.

"I aspire to live according to the philosophy of yoga.

 

My joy is teaching, helping people discover the benefits of yoga and seeing the small improvements or 'awakenings' in everyday life.

 

  Through my classes and events, I love to bring people together so that I can share the knowledge I have gained to help us all lives healthier, happier and more balanced lives."
