My first ever experience of yoga was many years ago at Sri Ved Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh India. Since then I have practised Yoga on and off over the years, until 4 years ago when I joined a local Hot Studio and started taking my practice very seriously. This also coincided with trips back to India where I spent time in Ashrams developing my spiritual practice, which is a very important part of my life now.
I work in Further Education and I am surrounding by students and staff who are stressed anxious and depressed, 30% of our students are suffering with some level of anxiety, so many people use alcohol just to relax. I teach and I am a mentor in my role in further education, I started running drop in meditation sessions 2 years ago and going into classrooms to work with students who have exams coming up, teaching some basic mindful techniques with them. Since completing my 200 hrs Yoga Alliance training I have been teaching Yoga and meditation to students and staff at the college. I also teach at a local Yoga studio and to private clients.
Moving forward in my life I am going to take a 12-month Sabbatical from my role in FE Education and I want to focus all my energies on sharing and teaching my yoga practice. I am open to teaching anywhere in the world and I intend to complete my 300 hrs Yoga Alliance teacher training in my forthcoming year out.
In my teaching role, my specialism is Textiles and I have been teaching general Art studies with many different levels of students over the last 6 years. I feel very strongly about the importance of a healthy diet, I have been Vegetarian for more than 30 years and I grow my own organic fruit and vegetables, nothing beats going into your own garden to pick food that you then directly prepare and eat. I love cooking and preparing food for friends and family and I am always exploring new recipes
