Yoga is a tool a friend and a teacher. As a tool, it allows me to remain fit and healthy. As a friend it supports me in all the many modes of life regardless of how I am towards it.

Someone to be relied upon whose counsel is always wise, if not always understood at the time.

I became interested in yoga in my 20s, when 1 was working and living in the Outback where it was too hot for anything other than the minimum physical activity outside work and I saw yoga as a good compromise to keep fit. 1 soon realised how much I had to leam and could benefit from daily practice. Dunng this time 1 lived in Thailand and took up Vipassana meditation which has become a daily activity since then. Then in the 1990s my approach to yoga was transformed by the inspiration of Danny Paradise when he started his workshops in the UK. With this practice I felt that a missing link (the Ujjayi breath and Bandhas) had fallen into place.
Yoga is very important because it tells me exactly how 1 feel both physically and mentally, whether I am concentrated or distracted and how my physical health is. Today 1 share with my students my approach to yoga which is integrated with mindfulness. This way of practising creates lightness and balance but above all gives a place to re-connect with what is authentic both on the mat and in daily life.
