I have been studying and teaching Hatha yoga since 1989. Over the years, I have studied with a variety of teachers, allowing me to adapt my knowledge to the needs of many different students. I enjoybringing yoga into schools, universities and the workplace. I specialise in teaching yoga for better mental health and for people with substance misuse issues.
