My Yoga journey
My teacher training was grounded in the traditions of Iyengar and Astanga, I practiced Mysore Astanga for a few years. A number of years ago whilst in India and took a Scaravelli inspired workshop, after practicing only 6 poses in 3 hours I was amazed how hard we had worked, and how much fun it had been. Those of you who know the Astanga series will be well aware of what a shock to the system this was! I had found a fluid way of working with the postures that called on my complete awareness and allowed me to experience more opening in my body than I had ever thought possible.

 I continued my travels throughout Asia I have practiced many times with Surinder Singh, a beloved hatha Yoga teacher in Rishikesh. I have enjoyed Kundalini Yoga with Gurmukh and Gurushabd by the banks of the Ganga in India. I found this to be a very powerful and transformative form of yoga.

 My more recent explorations with Yoga have been closer to home and I have learnt a great deal from a few of the wonderful Scaravelli inspired Yoga teachers here in the UK. The principals of Vanda Scaravelli’s approach inform the way I practice and teach Yoga now. I’ve learnt how to experience Yoga poses from an awareness deep within, without attachment to the external appearance of the posture. This approach captures the essence of Yoga– union of mind and body. I feel It has more in common with meditation than exercise and creates greater potential for liberation – the true aim of Yoga.
