Yoga changed me - knee problems meant by the age of 34 a short walk to the postbox was often beyond me. In 1994 after my first class I slept so well I tried to do the things I'd learned. After 2 weeks the pain stopped. I've done at least 15 minutes of yoga daily since and added meditation in 2004 - both are a support and a delight.
I trained in 1999 & 2000 Mary Stewart, who worked with Iyengar in the 1970s and Vanda Scaravelli later. I continue to study at home and train through courses, workshops, retreats and teacher training. I work with an eclectic mix of international and local teachers and with 'my' teacher in London, the amazing Catherine James. I've been teaching (English) since 1982 and yoga since 1999 and am insured through the British Wheel of Yoga. I have also trained to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction with the University of Bangor’s Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice. I love teaching and learning from the students who come to the classes. It's a wonderful life.
