Teaching yoga for over 20 years
I took my first yoga class in 1994 and moved to live in a yoga community and study under Baba Hari Dass until 1998. As my first teacher of yoga, Baba Hari Dass holds a very dear place in my heart. He was a silent monk, giving his teachings in written form on a chalkboard and in 1996 he gave me permission to teach asana, pranayama and hand mudras.
Since this time I have taught yoga practices: asana, hand mudras, meditation and pranayama; although in the last decade I have mainly focused on teaching the physical level of yoga --specifically the forms of Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin yoga forms.
In addition to Baba Hari Dass, I have deep gratitude to my teachers and friends: Norman Blair, with whom I have studied Yin yoga since 2003 and to Lucy Crawford and John Scott with whom I have also studied since 2003. Norman, Lucy and John have greatly inspired my practice and way of being and I am very happy to include their insights in my own teachings.
I hold a PhD in dance and movement analysis and am a recognised Senior Yoga Teacher by Yoga Alliance Professionals, UK.
