experience of yoga was in an ashram in India in 1996.
What captured my interest most was the philosophy
and spirituality around Yoga and after returning, I
delved into texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and the
Ramayana, which revealed yoga as more than a physical
discipline. At the time, I was studying law at
university and spent the next few years focusing on my
legal career and later, on raising a young family.
When my children became a little more independent,
I was able to immerse myself in yoga more fully,
formally studying it and eventually gaining the Diploma
in Teaching from the British Wheel of Yoga.
taught Yoga in different contexts including to corporate
clients, for the Sindhi temple, to individuals and for
charities. I also teach Chair Yoga to people with
dementia, mental health issues and mobility issues,
which has been invaluable in teaching me to make yoga
accessible to everyone. My classes aim to improve
strength, range of movement, balance and coordination.
I encourage a mindful practice to develop
self-awareness and a sense of calm.
