I started yoga when I was 18 and was fortunate to have Philip Jones as a teacher. In 2005 I trained for 3 years as a yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga.
I have studied Pranyama with Philip Xerri, I have also trained as a YFHLB (Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs) instructor, and run courses for people suffering with intermittent lower back pain. I have recently completed a course in Laughter Therapy with the United Mind Institute. I have been influenced by the Dru and Scarvelli Yoga styles.
Primarily I teach Hatha Yoga. I teach people of all ages and abilities. I have also completed Level One Coach training in Hanna Somactics.
Since taking redundancy, I have made yoga my life and work. As well as running my regular weekly yoga classes I have been working with St Davids Hospice, the elderly at Caerleon House and Milton Court and the Alzeimers Society delivering Breathe Stretch and Relax classes (chair based). This is rewarding work and feel I am giving something back to society.
I hold full indemnity insurance through my professional membership of the British Wheel of Yoga, as well as a First Aid qualification specifically for yoga teachers.
