Many years ago I turned to yoga for pain relief. My first teacher was from Kerhala in India, and he shared practical techniques with me without any dogma.

In time, my health was restored, then greatly enhanced. My passion for teaching evolved from that life-transforming experience of recovery.

Later I did some teacher training, and 2021 sees me immersed in MA research related to yoga within the sociology of health and medicine.

Creativity is my other passion; I enjoy making visual art, writing, drumming, and dancing.
