My obsession with the body and the shapes it can make has been a passion all my life. In my younger years I spent most of my time dancing. From tap dancing on the lino in the kitchen (much to my mom’s despair!) to attending classes I just couldn’t seem to get enough.
I got drawn towards yoga on my first visit to India in 2000. It was the start of my epic journey halfway around the world. India itself blew my mind. Sights, sounds, tastes, smells, everything was new and exciting and I never imagined at the time that I would be back to visit it again and again.
After my yoga discovery I tried out many different styles, but soon got drawn into the world of Iyengar. The attention to detail and variety of sequences suited my analytical mind and continues to hold my interest. There will always be something new to learn in what might seem the simplest of asana’s (postures).
After 2 years of training, here in my home town of Birmingham, in November 2008, I was very proud to become an Introductory Iyengar Yoga teacher. Throughout the training process I discovered that my interests lay in therapeutic work and how to use yoga as a tool for healing the body and mind. In March 2016 I recieved a Junior Intermediate level 2 certification which draws me closer to my goal of helping others to fix the body and calm the ever wondering mind through the practice of yoga.
