I started Yoga to help with my breathing and to relieve symptoms of asthma. Regular practice significantly improved my breathing capacity and I am free from medication. Yoga also provided personal space during very difficult personal challenges at that time. It was my weekly lifeline for me-time. Yoga has, and continues to support me.
I have been practicing Yoga for many years and teaching for 10. I completed a three year teaching Diploma course in the tradition of TKV Desikachar and his father, T Krishnamacharya.
I am registered as an accredited teacher with The Society of Yoga Practitioners (TSYP). Its aim is to promote the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father, T Krishnamacharya.
I am also a member of the British Wheel of Yoga.
Working with the breath is at the heart of my way of teaching because breath is the vital link between body and mind. My classes include yoga postures (āsana), controlled breathing exercises (prānāyama), sometimes sound, and other meditative techniques (bhāvanā). I include some yoga theory to deepen understanding and experience of yoga, on and off the mat because Yoga is meant to be lived.
To me it is about creating space for perspective in becoming a better version of ourselves. My aim is to share it with as many people as I can because of my faith in these teachings.
