Introduction “I began Yoga at the age of thirteen and it continues to transform my life. I am pleased and privileged to be able to give something back by teaching Yoga to others. Yoga led me to physical and spiritual competence. As a result I have been able to enjoy vigorous exercise and spent 12 years organising and instructing outdoor pursuits for the Inner London Probation Service. I have also held “Inward Bound” courses - Yoga and mountaineering. I continue to be sustained by Yoga and by being a Quaker. “In 1978 my study of Yoga led to a B.W.Y. Teaching Diploma. “In 1989 I undertook training in psychotherapy on a B.A.C. accredited 3-year diploma course taught by Nigel Hamilton. This involved study and practice of both humanistic and spiritual approaches to therapy, known as Transpersonal. From 1992 I have held counselling & psychotherapy sessions for 2-4 clients per week, some short and some long-term. “I am convinced that Yoga practice should touch the whole human being and link the individual with the universal. In practical terms this means I include as many aspects of Yoga as possible and encourage people to go beyond their original reasons for practising Yoga.
Interests Yoga, Quakerism, Music, Mountaineering, Sailing, Mysticism.
