I became a qualified Yoga teacher in 2006 with the Life centre in London with a diploma course accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and have been teaching in West Wales ever since. I continue to attend workshops and courses, both in the UK and overseas with great teacher from all different Yoga traditions( Richard Freeman from the Ashtanga Vinyasa and Aadil Palkavalya from Purna Yoga to name a few), on aspects of Yoga that I wish to deepen both for my own practice and for my classes.
I have been very fortunate to have trained with many inspiring yoga teachers, experiencing different styles such as Astanga, Iyengar, Sivananda & traditional hatha and my wish is to inspire others in the way that I have.
