I began practising meditation in 1983 and started going to weekly yoga classes with Swami Vedantananda and Swami Pragyamurti in London is 1989. I trained to be a yoga teacher with Swami Vedantananda between 1996 and 2000.Upon qualification I left my work as an IP Litigation solicitor and legal skills trainer, and I have been teaching yoga full time since then. My teaching certificates are from the Bihar School of Yoga and British Wheel of Yoga and I am insured by the British Wheel of Yoga.
I am also an assessor and teacher trainer and have worked on yoga teacher training programmes in India, Portugal and the UK and for the Mandala Ashram in Wales.
I have further specialist training for teaching antenatal yoga and postnatal yoga with Birthlight, and optimal foetal positioning with Jean Sutton. I trained with Fiona Agombar to teach yoga to people with ME and CFS and have completed a short course with Julie Friedburger for teaching yoga to people living with cancer. I have also completed the Yoga for Healthy Backs teacher training.
I regularly attend training courses for teachers and yoga workshops to consolidate my learning and for my own benefit. I particularly enjoy exploring the scientific underpinning of the practice of yoga and am fascinated by modern pain science and how much of this relatively new knowledge in the western world can be applied to our practice of yoga for rehabilitation and recovery from injury and surgery. This year (2019) I have just completed a one year Humanistic Yoga course with Pete Blackeby .
To re enforce my learning about the most recent findings in pain science I I will be attending an “explain Pain” course in March with the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute.
