Sheffield Ashtanga Yoga

I have been a student of yoga since 1988. While studying British Wheel and Iyengar yoga, I was first introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in 1994 during a visit to the Practice Place in Crete (now Yoga Plus) run by Radha and the late Derek Ireland. Since then, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga has become my main practice and passion. In 2009 I completed a 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Michael Gannon and Brian Cooper.

In 2005 I first met Lino Miele at his workshop in India and I have subsequently spent a couple of months each year at retreats and workshops with him. I have now completed an in-depth study of Ashtanga Yoga with Lino Miele and I am honoured to be one of his recognised teachers (see www.linomiele.com).

Ashtanga Yoga is a yoga of practice. As my teachers have shown me, it requires mental and physical application from which strength, poise and inner wisdom develop.
