These are just some of the benefits of yoga at work - even short 20 or 30 minute lunchtime classes. All that's needed is some free floorspace in a quiet area (or a Zoom account) and loose clothing.

I've been practising yoga for nearly 18 years and, in June 2007, after four years of study, I qualified as a teacher with The British Wheel of Yoga. Learning never ends so I continue to study with prominent teacher trainers - completing a 12 month course in anatomy and structural integration in yoga with teacher-trainer Gary Carter (whose work is inspired by the distinctive approach of Italian teacher, Vanda Scaravelli). An eight week mindfulness course at the University of Oxford, a Diploma in Thai Yoga Massage and, in 2019, a foundation certificate in Yoga Therapy have brought new dimensions to my practice and my classes.
