Following several years of repeated lower back pain it was recommended that I strengthen my core. I was given a one to one Yoga session as a birthday present and have been in love with the practice of Yoga ever since.
The improvement in my back health has been incredible; I do not suffer with any back pain now and am stronger than ever before. My increased strength and flexibility has benefited other sports I participate in such as mountain biking, running and swimming. I wanted others to benefit from Yoga so decided to train as a teacher. I trained at the Sam Rao Yoga School and started teaching in 2015. http://www.samraoyoga.com/
I love the flow and movement of Yoga; the connection between body, mind and breath. I appreciate the sense of inner calm the practice brings. I want to understand why every posture and move will benefit my body and pass this knowledge on when I teach.
Within each Beginner, 75 or 90 minute class, I teach basic Hatha Yoga which flows from one pose to another and allows the student time to settle in each posture, enjoy the stretch and build strength. I also teach 60 minute Gentle Yoga classes for those who want to improve flexibility and strength in a gentle manner.
My training is in Hatha Yoga. I have attended classes in Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga.
I am currently studying for my 300 hours Post Graduate Course with Waking Minds Yoga. https://wakingmindsyoga.co.uk/
and Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training with Yoga Nidra Network (Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD and Nirlipta Tuli)
Postural alignment and student safety are very important to me but the most important element of all my classes is to create a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
