"When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world."
I discovered Iyengar Yoga in 1990 whilst studying Classics at university; I happened upon a class taught by Kofi Busia and was hooked. I qualified as an Iyengar yoga teacher in 2002 (taking 5 years over the training and having our first two children during the process!). I attend regular classes and workshops with senior Iyengar teachers from the UK and India and have studied at the RIMYI Institute in Pune with the Iyengars. I now hold a Level 3 certificate.
I am indebted to the profound work of BKS Iyengar, Geeta Iyengar and now Prashant and Abhijata Iyengar who share their knowledge and experience with an infinite generosity that has given us a practice of yoga that is safe and available to all. The journey into each asana is endless and there is always more to refine and more to discover. I sustain a regular practice and my fascination with connections - the connections within the asana, between the asanas, between the mind, the body and the breath - leads me never to tire of yoga practice or teaching.
I live in Sussex with my husband and 4 children (and numerous animals) and am grateful to all of them for their unconditional love and support and for what they have added to my understanding of yoga.
I aim to teach my yoga classes in the spirit of "friendliness, compassion, gladness and joy" as in Patanjali's Yoga Sutra1.33.
