Director – Maggie Shanks (Vice Chair)

My yoga journey started as a teenager and has been a thread of joy and support since that time. I’ve studied and taught in other traditions and am ‘contented’ to find my permanent home in the teachings of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. My background in social research and work in the charity sector has given me experience of governance and organisational development through working with teams to put ideas into action. My role in the TSYP committee is to lend practical support to committee decisions and, in particular, to the Chair. I am pleased to be supporting the TSYP committee and its work to uphold and spread yoga in the tradition of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar.
