My yoga journey started 30 or so years ago as a result of a back injury. My first teacher, Angela Davies, was patient, encouraging and supportive. I knew straight away that this was the right path for me and for my back. When Angela moved onto other areas I was extremely fortunate to find Bob and Be Insley and with their encouragement went on to undertake the BWY Foundation Course. This was a revelation, and I gained a much deeper insight into the practice of yoga. Being able to look a little more indepth into the philosophy brought about a realisation that I needed to continue my journey. The Foundation Course gave me a unique and wonderful stepping stone into the BWY Diploma, which I undertook with the late Karen Lewis in North London. I have had many wonderful teachers over the years, but the encouragement and support I gained from the first two was the inspiration that has stayed with me throughout. My love of yoga continues and I have now completed the BWY DCT training and am running my own diploma courses teaching yogi’s to become teachers. I am really looking forward to being able to pass on all the wonderful knowledge and teaching I have been fortunate to have experienced over the last 30 years.
