Comments : I practiced yoga since 1986 and have taught on international yoga retreats and workshops for the past ten years, as well as Yoga Teacher Training courses in Goa and London. I teach Astanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, as well as traditional forms of Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation in both regular classes and to private clients in London. The Philosophy Astanga is taught in the Mysore tradition of Sri K Patabbhi Jois, and Vinyasa Krama (or Hatha Flow), is an intelligent linking of poses - with breath and dristi - rooted in classical yogic traditions that explores the physical, mental and subtle aspects of the practice. I consider Sri T Krishnamacharya to be the Grandfather of 'modern yoga' and endeavor to teach all 8 limbs of ‘classical' Astanga in Patanjali's 'Yoga Sutras' (200 B.C.). Yoga philosophy is integrated with asana, breath and dristi to explore the inner/outer techniques of Hatha Yoga that transform the mind and body and illuminate one's highest potential to find purpose and meaning in life. I aim to reveal the spiritual path underlying the practice and the technology to stabilize the mind, so we can shed the veils of Maya perpetuated by the ego, glimpse at our true nature and liberate ourselves from suffering. My approach is a deep physical and psychological practice that moves beyond a mere physical experience to make the spiritual yogic inquiry authentic and relevant to real life. The ultimate aim of yoga is love, liberation and freedom. Moksha. The Practice I began Hatha Yoga (BKS Iyengar) in 1986 and my yoga path has involved extensive studies with brilliant teachers from around the world, many who have had a profound influence of my unique style. I studied Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga intensively with Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore and many of his senior students including Manju Jois, John Scott, David Swenson, Matthew Sweeney and Rolf Naujokat. Nancy Gilgoff was my first Ashtanga teacher and I've attended many of her 'Adjustment Clinics' to learn how to safely assist people in the Primary and Intermediate Series. I completed a 200-level Yoga Teacher Training with Richard Freeman (2004) and attend his annual yoga intensives in London. I also completed a 200+ level training focusing on the traditional Krishnamacharya method of Asana, Pranayama and Kundalini Metaphysics with Sri BNS lyengar at the Patanajala Yoga Shala in Mysore (2008). On the Vinyasa Flow side of yoga, I completed the Tripsichore Yoga Theatre Teacher Training with Edward Clark (2002). David Life and Sharon Gannon (Jivamukti Studios) and Emil Wendel (Beyond the Asana) are also inspirational people and teachers. More recently, my yogic path led me back to the alignment principles of BKS Iyengar and take regular classes with Alaric Newcombe at the Iyengar Institute in London. In 2012, I did a month-long Iyengar training with Glenn Ceresoli in Goa. I’m also a student of Tibetan Yantra Yoga, a practice that is probably the closest form to classical Indian yoga that exists today. Throughout my yogic journey, I keep an `open`ing mind about the practice and try not to succumb to dogma.
