Hello, I am a British Wheel of Yoga teacher and foundation course tutor, I teach adults and children in the Newcastle area. I aim to encourage a creative and playful approach to yoga - developing an understanding of the philosophy through experiential learning that is grounded in a world that children, young people and adults can relate to.
I worked for many years in the field of Health Promotion with young people, parents and professionals in a wide variety of class and group work settings. It was this experience, and my love of yoga, that encouraged me to complete the BWY module "Yoga for Children" and become a BWY Foundation Course Tutor. I also find much inspiration from my work with internationally renowned teachers Paul Fox, David Sye, Zoe Knott, Bob Insley, Peter Blackaby and Gary & Sharon Carter
In my classes you will explore the relationship between tension and effort; observing how the body can move deeply into postures without holding onto tension; using the breath and a little mischievous wiggling(!!) to help the journey into and out of each posture creating a different approach to stretching, and easing the mind.
