I started practising Iyengar Yoga as a teenager in the 1970s and in fact my first Iyengar teacher was Kofi Busia! I then met BKS Iyengar in a Master Class in Oxford sometime later, an event that completely transformed my whole being and life thereafter and I vowed to dedicate my life to this man's teachings.
Shortly after, I started to train as a teacher under the watchful eye of Jeanne Maslen, another extraordinary teacher, from Manchester. How lucky have I been!?
I started teaching in Birmingham, my hometown, in 1980 and have continued to do so ever since.
I opened the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Birmingham UK in 2002 with Guruji’s blessings.
I have visited RIMYI in Pune over 20 times during the last 3 decades. I have taught many workshops in UK, Europe and North America and also have a special interest in Yoga for Sports. I have been a long time teacher at Birmingham City Football Club and deal with injury prevention for footballers. It will come as no surprise then that apart from Yoga and Indian Philosophy I am a keen football fan! I love reading and writing, poetry, and walking my beloved Jack Russell 'Sparky'!
