Over many years of practising yoga, I have inevitably encountered many types of practice, settings and teachers. I am grateful to them all.
I would also like to like to thank Uma Dinsmore Tuli for her training in Womb Yoga and in Yoga Nidra facilitation and Shaura Hall for her training course in Yoga for Addiction for their inspiration and introduction to more therapeutic and healing yoga.
2016 brought further training in pregnancy and post natal yoga with the pregnancy specialists Yoga Mama. Many thanks to the wonderful Cheryl Lathey and her great team in Putney.
I am continuing to train and finding a wonderful synthesis between yoga therapeutics and my psychology background. I love being part of the team at Edinburgh Community Yoga and particularly enjoy outreach teaching.
In 2017 I discovered Birthlight’s excellent training and have subsequently completed specialist courses with them in diastasis recti (“split abs”) and in toddler yoga.
My own personal yoga has developed from a weekly class in a community hall in the 1970s through hours in front of yoga videos to a daily ashtanga practice. Becky Walden ‘s classes in Wantage were a kind, warm and fun introduction to ashtanga yoga when I needed it most. And I am continually grateful for Sarah Hatcher’s intuition, wisdom and patience and to Emma Isokivi and Amy Hughes in the Mysore room at Meadowlark.
