“Determination and dedication makes a good practitioner, not how flexible you are.” Sharath Jois
I attended my first yoga class in 1995 and have been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa since 2000, loving the discipline and tradition. It’s the practice I return to time and time again. I first began teaching in 2002, completed teacher training in 2005, and spent 3 months in India immersed in the study of asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation and yogic philosophy. I’m registered as a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals in the UK.
Miyoga was opened in 2013 to provide a simple space for students to come and learn. Students are encouraged to enjoy what they can do and not focus on what they can’t. In exploring we become aware of possibilities- yoga can bring great change when approached with an open mind. Students come to yoga from all walks of life, at all ages, sometimes with injuries, illness, and other life challenges and whatever their differences all seek something universal – contentment and peace. Yoga teaches us to look inward, and in looking inward with acceptance we learn how to look outward with equanimity.
