I live in Stroud, Gloucestershire and am a fully qualified and insured yoga teacher. I trained to teach after many years of personal practice with a wish to share the gifts of yoga and meditation with others. I have studied and practiced yoga for over 30 years, and have been running regular weekly yoga classes and workshops throughout Gloucestershire since 2000. I have trained extensively, and have been certificated by B.K.S Iyengar, a student of Krishnamacharya, the founder of modern yoga. I have studied Buddhism (Theravadin, Zen) for many years and practice Mindfulness/ Insight (Samatha/Vipassana) meditation, and have attended many retreats. I have studied other systems of yoga including Sivananda, Bihar and Scaravelli. My mature approach to teaching blends the practice of yoga postures with that of Mindfulness. I am a member of the Independent Yoga Network.
I have completed a Mindfulness/ Insight meditation teacher training at Satipanya Buddhist Retreat Centre, with Bhante Bodhidharma, an English Theravadin Buddhist monk, who for four years was the resident teacher at Gaia House in Devon.
I have worked with people of all ages and abilities, in the workplace and with the general public, as well as with men & women in H.M prisons, in an organizations supporting addiction rehabilitation, with individuals with special needs, with teenagers in youth centers and in secondary schools throughout Gloucestershire. I maintain a regular yoga and meditation practice and am committed to ongoing professional development and training, and regularly take part in courses and retreats.
