They normally laugh as perhaps they don’t realise the reality yet… our classes are designed to be fun so this is part of it.
If you could only impart one yoga philosophy to teenagers what would it be? I’d say the Yamas & Niyamas of the 8 fold path – the Ten ethical precepts that allow us to be at peace with ourselves, our family, and our community. I always mention Ahimsa to teens – being kind to others and ourselves; nurturing ourselves is just as important as being nonviolent and kind to others.
As a swimming teacher I was already sharing one of my passions -I decide to train to teach yoga and on completing my training I trained further in teaching to teens and now teach yoga in schools and privately in Bucks and Berks here in the UK.
Life now connects me to India, I spend a lot of time there each year and am lucky to be able to learn further from teachers of all traditions.
I have studied Anatomy & Physiology, Thai Massage at The Nerve Touch Centre in Chiang Mai, Thailand, am trained in Indian Head Massage and hold Reiki 1.
