I love sharing yoga.
I first began to practice yoga around 2003/4 and faced many physical & mental challenges. I believed yoga was not for me as I was not bendy enough and I was way too impatient.
I began to see that these were the reasons I NEEDED to practice yoga. Changes have happened, my flexibility and strength has improved as well as my outlook and sense of wellbeing. I now accept that there are many postures that I will never be able to do and understanding this has enabled me to enjoy yoga more.
Over the years I’ve become a “forever student” of yoga and I simply continue to learn and it is now a huge part of my life.
My classes are very grounded…I focus on the postures (asanas), the breath (pranayama) & gentle meditation.
Since I began teaching, I have worked with a wide variety of wonderful people... From clients who need tailored programs to help with osteoarthritis, to Football Clubs (Burton Albion & Derby County) , Foston Women’s Prison, and very gentle sessions where the focus has been on breathing, relaxation & meditation to more dynamic & energising sessions.
I love being able to teach and share yoga to such a diverse range of people who have various needs and often ailments. It can bring so much relief, from pain and stress.
The years of experience has taught me that there is no “perfect pose” ... we adapt yoga to suit the person.
In addition to Adult Yoga, I work as a Baby Yoga Teacher Trainer for Touch Learn International Ltd. TouchLearn is an amazing training provider for healthcare professionals & practitioners working within the community. Aside from Baby Yoga, it delivers Baby Massage courses, Baby Signing , Massage for Babies with Special Needs & many more.
It has been an absolute pleasure to train many wonderful people over the years in a positive learning environment from a company with such strong ethics.
I would like to offer my thanks and gratitude to my amazing teachers for their continuing kindness & knowledge Deanna Foster & Deep Kumar.
