I first attended a yoga class in my early twenties and was hooked. I felt more relaxed, had more energy and was able to deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life more easily. When I had my children and suffered from post natal depression, it was yoga that helped me on my path to recovery and it is something that is now a part of my life and continues to bring me healing. My yoga teacher encouraged me to take teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga. This is now over 15 years ago and was followed by further training for pregnancy and post-natal. I have benefited from the teaching of many generous, gifted teachers. Today, my practice and teaching is inspired by Vanda Scaravelli and teachers who studied with her. This way of working is from inside, being curious about the body and inquiring, using the yoga asanas as a means of undoing old tensions. It is a continuous journey of learning, enquiring and discovery which uncovers the beauty of the body and the breath.
"You have to learn how to listen to your body, going with it and not against it, avoiding all effort or strain. You will be amazed to discover that, if you are kind to your body, it will respond in an incredible way." "Yoga as intended here, consists in breaking bad habits and in re-educating the spine so as to bring it back to its original suppleness" - from 'Awakening the Spine' by Vanda Scaravelli.
