I began my career in 1994 as a school teacher and have been studying and practising yoga since the mid 1990s. I was introduced to the teachings of T. K. Krishnamacharya by Sheila Baker (The Association of Yoga Studies)and have studied with Ranju Roy and Dave Charlton as part of the Sadhana Mala Teacher and Therapy Practitioner Training Programme (aYs) and (British Wheel Yoga).
My approach to yoga is sensitive and varied, respecting each individual's uniqueness and starting point.
I teach small, friendly yoga classes suitable for all ages and abilities based around Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
I teach also, one to one yoga tuition and therapy which is the application of yoga practices for health and healing in order to alleviate many common ailments. Practices in both 121, classes and workshops include simple physical postures, breathing techniques, relaxation techniques and meditation and study.
Individual yoga tuition/therapy, classes and workshops are based around Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
I continue to study with senior teachers within the aYs as well as attending workshops/retreats and my own 121 sessions.
