    • About the Practice



Senior Yoga Teacher, Approved Mentor

My main interest was always the spiritual side of Yoga as it has been passed on to us in scriptures such as Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. I have specialised on teaching Yoga as described and instructed in these scriptures. My knowledge of the scriptures is extensive and I am learning Sanskrit to interpret them correctly. Teaching Yoga as a spiritual practice does not mean the physical side is missing, I teach asana slowly and intensively, integrating breath, mind control and lead my students to a deeper insight of themselves and the universe. Most students coming to my classes, teacher training, or other courses report that they have learned what the "real Yoga " is, where it comes from and how to practice. They have changed physically, mentally and feel a door has opened for them to a spiritual understanding. I am leaving the BWY to open up an own Yoga School with several other yoga teachers I have trained. We call ourselves: “Gift of India Yoga School” to emphasise our approach to teach the Indian practice and wisdom. We run classes, foundation training, teacher training CPD, workshops and one to one. I am based in Exmouth, Devon, where my Yoga studio is located, but I have been teaching all over the country and have students joining me on zoom from anywhere. I am currently offering a Foundation Yoga Teacher Training course (550 hour), starting in March 2022.
