I have peen practicing yoga for approximately 20 years. In that time, yoga has supported me with health and lifestyle improvements physically, mentally and emotionally. I was keen to share the benefits of yoga with others.
I completed a year long foundation course with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and followed that with a three year BWY teaching diploma. I have been teaching classes in and around the Forest of Dean since 2007. It is rewarding to watch students develop over time, finding a yoga style that suits them, that can be used to support their lives. Students report improved sleep, reduction in stress, better pain management, improved posture, flexibility, mobility and greater strength. Yoga has taught me the benefits of slowing down, being more mindful and enjoying a more balanced, peaceful life.
In 2016 I retired from a stressful NHS management role to create a better work/life balance. I have been able to increase the number of yoga classes I can offer, sharing my love of yoga with even more students who wish to improve their lives.
