I am a BWY (formerly British Wheel of Yoga) 500 hour Diploma holder (Ofqual Level 4) and certified Yin Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance) based in Ascot, Berkshire.
My first experience of yoga was back in the 1970s and I have vivid recollections of sitting on the floor of the school gymnasium in Padmasana (Lotus posture) – which is one my hips and ankles do not enjoy – but somehow I managed it aged 15!
In the 1980s and early ’90s I tried Ashtanga yoga, pushed myself too hard and had a few minor injuries. I was driven in everything I did and yoga was no different. During my three years of study with BWY I learned exactly why some of those repetitive sequences weren’t always suitable for me and in my teaching take great care to work with students on modifications that will bring them comfort in their practice. I was lucky enough to study Yin Yoga with the renowned Bernie Clark, and his focus on anatomy and physiology has further developed my quest to make yoga accessible.
