Passion

My passion for yoga led me to became a Yoga Instructor. I teach students the principles and practical implications of yoga, an ancient form of exercise with a specific phylosophy which aims to help people improve their mental and physical wellbeing. Yoga positions, breathing techniques, meditation and chanting are some of the aspects focused in my classes.

 

Experience

I soon became aware of the positive effect that practicing yoga had on my life and wellbeing. 

I was encouraged to follow the two-year teacher training course with The Traditional Yoga Association. In 2006 I qualified as a yoga teacher, which lead me to want to share my passion and knowledge with others. 

I have been practicing yoga for over 30 years. Currently I teach a variety of group classes, one-to-one yoga sessions, yoga retreats and participated in Yoga festivals. 

I am a volunteer teacher at The Reading Hindu Temple giving the local people in the community the opportunity to practice yoga helping people improve their mental and physical wellbeing. 

 

The class 

The class will cover Breath with Movement - with a focus on: 

- Breathing and body awareness during asanas 

- Doing asanas mindfully with peace and insight 

- Freeing ourselves from patterns of tension and tightness 

- Giving the opportunity to relax the body and mind 

- Being in the present moment.
