I was introduced to yoga in 2007 when attending a taster yoga class. As somebody who has always taken an interest in health and well-being yoga seemed the perfect addition to my regular health and fitness routine, so I continued to practice on a regular basis.
Working as a trained Museum Objects Conservator my work centered on the principles of 'conservation, restoration and preservation' in order to extend the lifespan of precious objects, it often struck me that we rarely apply the same principles to the human body and mind in the same way. After redundancy from my job in 2015 I decided to begin training as a yoga teacher and attended a 400 hour teacher training course with the International Shiva Yoga Centre in Liverpool. This heightened my interest and I wanted to learn more about how yoga affects the human body and mind, so in 2016 I began a 500 hour diploma in Yoga Therapy with Dru Yoga and in 2018 I began level 4 Teacher Training Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga.
In order to live a balanced life and maintain our health and well-being, the same principles of 'conservation, restoration and preservation' can be applied to our bodies through the practice of yoga. I hope to share what I have learnt, and continue to learn, through the classes I teach.
