Yoga Teacher Tuition : Reading

I have been working with yoga for 14 years. I am a qualified yoga teacher and yoga therapist. I gained a 700 hour teaching qualification as an AYS and BWY accredited teacher with Sadhana Mala in 2008. I completed my BWY and AYS pregnancy module with Vivien Talis in 2009 . I maintain continually professional development undertaking training and retreats with Ranju Roy and Dave Charlton and associate teachers of Sadhana Mala. My teaching is greatly enriched by study of inspirational teachers across traditions, including Gary Kraftsow, Mohan, Francoise Freedman, Donna Farhi, Janet Balaskas and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. I teach with respect to the traditions of Krishnamarcharya and T.K.V Desikichar.

Prior to yoga, I worked within the community in physical rehabilitation for adults, within community arts and as an advocacy worker with Realtime Video in Reading.

Teaching yoga enables me to integrate my work with my passion for yoga. Through yoga I aim to improve people's quality of life through transferring skills of self-nurture, independence and self-realization. The practice of yoga can offer all these things in an accessible and fun way at any level for any individual. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 having made a full recovery my journey inspires and grounds my teaching.
