I was introduced to the tradition of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar by Gill Lloyd, with whom I have been studying ever since, and trained as a yoga practitioner with Paul Harvey. I have also visited the KYM in Chennai several times to study yoga and Vedic chanting with Desikachar and his senior teachers. I have been a member of our UK organisation in its different guises for many years, actively supporting them in an administrative capacity. I also practise and teach the Alexander Technique on a one-to-one basis. I am a biologist by training and have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years. Not surprisingly, I have a strong interest in medical topics and all aspects of nature.
