I started on my Yogic path in 1999 with a regular practice of Asana and meditation and completed my first teacher training in 2004 with Brian Cooper and have done many workshops with him over the years.
For 10 years my main practice was Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and I made several visits to Mysore in India to study with Sri V Sheshadri, along with Brian both teachers were a great influence. To gain a broader insight into various approaches to practice I’ve studied with many international teachers over the past 15+ years including Srivatsa Ramaswami, Matthew Sweeney, Danny Paradise, David Williams, Nancy Gilgoff, Donna Farhi, Paul Grilley, Hema & Venkatesh from Mysore, Christopher Gladwell & Godfrey Devereux.
In 2011 I completed an additional 200-hour teaching diploma from the Patanjali International Yoga Foundation in Rishikesh studying traditional Hatha Yoga practices under the guidance of Dr Jitendara Das and completed the Heart of Yoga programme at the Krishnamacharya Healing Foundation in Chennai, India. To broaden my knowledge of Yoga philosophy I have also studied with the late Georg Feuerstein’s Traditional Yoga Studies school and hold a 250 hour diploma in classical Yoga and also hold a diploma in anatomy & physiology. Over the last few years my main teacher has been Philip Xerri and I’ve completed his Pranayama foundation training twice and continue to attended workshops with him
