Teaching since: 2018
Iyengar Certification: Introductory level 2
Location: Campsie Fells area
I attended my first Iyengar yoga class in Belfast in 1999. The benefits of practice were quickly evident as niggling aches and pains disappeared and my posture improved. I wanted to learn more and so enrolled in a general hatha yoga teacher training course. I then taught hatha yoga for a couple of years. On moving back to Scotland I sought out an Iyengar teacher. I quickly realised that I wanted to deepen my understanding of this more precise and progressive style of yoga. Twelve years and a couple of babies later I qualified to teach Iyengar Yoga. This time, I had a much deeper understanding than before. Being a working mum it is always a challenge to find enough time for my practice but Iyengar yoga has been a constant in my life since I was 22. Now I know it always will be. Once you experience the benefits you don’t want to give them up!
