As a Teacher-Trainer certified by Mr Desikachar as well as a former British Wheel of Yoga Diploma Course Tutor, I am available to offer Continued Professional Development (CPD) on Pranayama, as well as day seminars and weekend retreats, on in-depth topics such as teaching Breathwork or Voicework and the philosophical underpinning of Course Planning. These events can count as CPD for BWY and TSYP teachers.
Each year, normally, I offer 3 or 4 day schools or 'seminars' on a common theme associated with Yoga. My most recent seminar was face to face at the Ambrose Allen Centre in Tadley RG26 3TN on Saturday 2 April. My theme was 'The Cycle of the Breath' and compared what Mr Desikachar taught us about breathing with research by leading respiratory physiologists. A fascinating topic that I would be glad to share more widely! My next day seminar will be on Saturday 10 September with the theme 'Finding Inner Space' in relation to our capacity to respond to external stresses. Click here to see details(.pdf file 55kb).

The twice-yearly retreats we ran from 2010 to 2020 were very much enjoyed and we are delighted to offer them again. At Sarum College in the Spring my colleague Liz Murtha and I led what I'm confident in saying was a retreat to remember! It was also very helpful for one of our members who was recovering from Covid, please see her account below. Our next date is 18-20 November and my co-tutor this time will be Andy Curtis-Payne, the founding Chair of TSYP.
However, all ten places on our Autumn Retreat were taken within less than two days of the full details being released, so sorry but we are FULL! There is no-one yet on a waiting list. Our next retreat at Sarum College will take place 28-30 April next year.
