About Me

 

I am a fully qualified ( for 13 years ) Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, running weekly group classes, Private Tuition and Yoga at Work classes, in Prestwich, Whitefield and Radcliffe, and teaching throughout Greater Manchester. I have been teaching since gaining my Ashtanga Yoga Diploma with Brian Cooper in Edinburgh during 2003. I have also studied with a number of leading Ashtanga Yoga practitioners including David Williams, Brian Cooper, David Swenson and John Scott, and regularly attend workshops and classes. In my personal practice I am currently working on the Intermediate Series.

I teach yoga students from absolute Beginners to Intermediate level, ( Primary and Intermediate series ) and have taught a huge range of people from Professional Athletes and Premier Footballers, to those with physical issues, ranging from pregnancy to a range of permanent injuries and disabilities. I teach in Schools and Colleges, and am a fully qualified first Aider with DBS and full Insurance. My teaching style is friendly and open, and I encourage questions from students and engage interest through demonstration and description with Q & A sessions at the end of class. I teach and practice daily, and have taught in New York, Leeds and Manchester, appearing on Television to promote the benefits of yoga and am currently writing a book about Yoga.

In my “real life” I am also an Artist, and Teacher / Lecturer. I have had exhibitions worldwide, which have led me to some very interesting places where I have combined my passion for painting and yoga, and met some very interesting people along the way. Thanks to all who have practised with me, and to all my students for everything you have taught me, and continue to teach me.

Namaste
