I studied psychology and worked in mainstream and special education for over twenty years before changing to focus solely on teaching yoga classes and one to one work. After trying different yoga classes I found Gill Lloyd in 1993 and quickly became a firm adherent to this tradition, with a special interest in the use of sound and mantra. I studied Vedic chanting first with Gill and then with Radha Sundararajan and have recently run an international TSYP Vedic chant teacher training course with Radha and Gill. I consider myself fortunate to have met and studied with TKV Desikachar at the KYM in 2009 and have been back many times for continuing professional development. I also teach workshops and assist my partner Andy Curtis-Payne in Yoga.
