Yoga is for everyone, whatever age and ability. It creates freedom and awareness, not just physically but deep within.
“Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed”, BKS Iyengar states in his book ‘Light on Life’.
Yoga stems from the word “yuj” which means to join, yoke, unite: the coming together of the body, mind and soul.
By practising yoga, one gains flexibility, strength, stability, stamina and with that confidence and a quieter mind, an inner stillness.
I have been practising Iyengar Yoga since the early nineties and qualified as an Iyengar Yoga teacher in 2009. It has only brought benefits, to my health and well-being, to my attitude to life and dealing with its challenges. My own study and learning is ongoing; through my teaching and students and through my own practice and regularly attending classes and workshops with senior teachers. In 2015 and 2017 I gained the Intermediate Junior 1 and 2 level certificates.
I teach a variety of classes in Ealing and West Kensington, both general and intermediate level, which include asanas (postures), pranayama (breath control) and relaxation. I also teach children in a local primary school and in a public class for teenagers in Ealing Broadway.
