“For me, yoga is a way of looking at the world. It has helped me heal the split between my mind and body, so I feel more whole and present in the world.
It has made me more confident on all levels.”
I’ve been practising yoga for over 20 years and teaching Scaravelli-inspired yoga for the past 10 years. It is slower and deeper than some other forms of yoga. It’s definitely not just ‘exercise’ – although it does wonderful things for muscle tone and flexibility!
I love the more contemplative aspects of yoga and I often use the rhythms of nature as inspiration. Being aware of the breath, the movement, the season... this takes me deeper within myself and makes me feel more connected to the natural world. There's something almost sacred about it.
I have all the ‘formal’ necessaries: British Wheel of Yoga teacher accreditation, anatomy for yoga teaching, first-aid certificate and insurance.
Teachers who currently influence me include Pete Blackaby, Lisa McRory, Dominique Moorsom, Tias Little, Donna Farhi and Naomi Absalom.
