I have been teaching yoga since 2003 (though have taught other sports and activities since 1987). I originally undertook a two-year British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher training course at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. I have since added to that learning by training with experienced teachers including Leslie Kaminoff, Ray Long, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Lee, Zoe Knott, and Bob and Be Insley, amongst many others. I also have a BSc in Sports Science and Sports Psychology.
My yoga teaching is a blend of the traditional hatha yoga I have practised and learnt over many years, combined with up-to-date sports science and sports psychology information. I work in a way which offers the best therapeutic benefits of yoga for each individual. As one of my teachers said, “Postures don’t have alignment. Individuals do.”
I am a certified British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Tutor and a Yoga Alliance Professionals Senior Yoga Teacher and Teacher Trainer.
I now also offer teacher training courses in order to enable others to teach yoga which is safe, effective, enjoyable, and knowledgeable.
I am geographically located on the edge of Dartmoor and teach in homes and workplaces throughout Devon and Cornwall.
