Yoga is a central part of my life. I have spent the last 28 years encouraging many friends and family to consider taking yoga classes, and along the way have qualified as a yoga teacher with Camyoga (200 hour Yoga Alliance Diploma).
The importance of the breath forms the very basis of yoga and
I was very lucky to be inspired by my first yoga teacher, Francoise Freedman (Birthlight) in Cambridge, to incorporate the yoga breath into all that I do.
For my own teaching I like to teach Hatha yoga and follow the teachings of Iyengar, one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world, as passed on by Mary Stewart, and Vanda Scaravelli. This yoga explores the asana, with the focus on how you feel, and what is right for you. Being led by the breath; the aim is to experience stillness and calm, and take this wonderful feeling into your daily living.
Yoga practice becomes a journey, which is as individual and unique as every person. I like to have some fun and enable as many people as possible to give yoga a try. I love to work with small groups and family members of all ages and abilities.
Francoise also introduced me to homeopathy, aromatherapy, the importance of nutrition and daily practice. All of these complementary therapies and ways of healthy living are a key part of my own yoga practice and daily life with my family.
Exploring yoga, the philosophy and some of the many teachings and books available has improved and enriched my life and I would love to share some of what I have learnt with you. I look forward to welcoming you to Yoga Tree Studios whether you are continuing or just starting out on your exploration of Yoga.
