I have taught Iyengar yoga classes for 17 years in and around the Sunderland Area . I am a member of Iyengar Yoga UK and Iyengar Yoga Northeast which are a requirement, and attend annual cpd sessions, along with regular teacher training with a senior instructor . 

Without this you are not insured and cannot use the Iyengar logo.

As with many Iyengar tutors we do this as a way to advance our own practice , for enjoyment and to ensure the safety and enjoyment of our students . We are passionate about our yoga and convey this in the classes we teach . There is no online training and each Iyengar teacher has studied and practised yoga for a minimum of 5 years - the introductory training is a 2 year practical programme . The training never ends ...and our commitment never ceases.

I trained in Shabashi Qigoing with Somerset College , they have an established and accredited training programme , and I have been teaching and practising for 10 + years within the NHS and public sector.

Meditation , I have been practising meditation for many years , and I practise guided , mindfulness , the breath and Transcendental Meditation.

I trained to teach the many forms ( barring Transcendental) , with the British School of meditation which runs a very practical and in-depth teaching course. That enriches and consolidates the many forms of meditation and is nationally recognised and is a a practical classroom based environment ( again not online) .
