News

I have recently returned from the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai with, as always, lots of new ideas. My Spring Retreat with Liz Murtha, 26-28 April in Salisbury, is now almost full. Please see my events page.

My book ‘Breath For Health’ can be ordered online by following the links on my publisher’s website collectiveinkbooks. You can now post reviews on all online booksellers. I also post updates on Facebook @breath4health and I now have an author’s website breath4health.yoga where you can find more details about my book and read my blogs on breathing matters.

Podcast on which I’ve been invited: Dr Amy Wheeler (Yoga Therapy Hour) Yoga Therapy Hour ; J. Brown (on the topic of Yoga Therapy) J. Brown; Danielle Sax (on Breathing and Stress) UK Health Radio; Paula Vail (Elevating Your Life) KMET-TV;

Last December I was invited to a talk in London by Leslie Kaminoff yogaanatomy on the respiratory diaphragm. I had a great time picking up ideas from LK and chipping in now and then with points I can remember that were made by our teacher Sri TKV Desikachar.

I also have responsibilites as Chair of the British Council for Yoga Therapy. Yoga Therapy, which helps people improve their own health by practising bespoke daily exercise, has benefits which often complement those available from conventional medicine.

Continuing Professional Development

If you are looking for a tutor to deliver an interesting, instructive and inspiring CPD day for teachers in your area, I am currently still available to offer an in-depth look at the material both in my book ‘Breath for Health’ and many topics beyond, with always the opportunity to pose questions.

My Local Day Seminars

In the Spring of 2024, I’ve been invited to teach Breath for Health seminars in Wiltshire, Stockbridge on 9 March and Salisbury on 13 April and 9 June. The Salisbury seminars are fully booked, but please visit the Studio Yoga website to look for places on 9 March.

My Weekend Yoga Study Retreats

After a break in 2020-21, I’m delighted to offer these study/practice retreats again. Last October at Sarum College, Salisbury, Andy Curtis-Payne and I led another retreat to remember. Our next date at Sarum College will be 26-28 April 2024 on the theme ‘Out of the Ordinary’ and my co-tutor this time will be Liz Murtha. SORRY, FULL! Next opportunity: Andy and I will be at Sarum College again 25-27 October 2024.
