I have been inspired by teachers broadly following in the footsteps of Vanda Scaravelli. Vanda trained with BKS Iyengar and T K V Desikachar, later developing her own methods of teaching the body’s response to gravity and to the breath.
I have a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma . My diploma teacher, Val Davies, underlined the importance of safety; of being true to ourselves and to embrace diversity in the spirit of yoga. In 2018 I have currently completed 20 hours of continuing professional development as part of my BWY membership (16 hours is mandatory).
Annie Silverman and Chloe Fremantle have provided invaluable insights into teaching as well as helping me to deepen my own practice. Classes with Ruth Lovell helped me to further explore the philosophy of yoga as well as considering the needs of students with chronic illness.
I am on the Register of Exercise Professionals (REP) Level 3
I have completed an 8 week Mindfulness Course with Jane Barker.
I have a current Emergency First Aid at Work certificate and I am fully insured by the BWY.
