"Symphisis has become a place for people to feel safe to connect with who they are, to explore, express and be themselves - all in an atmosphere of love and support."
I started practicing yoga in 1981 after lots of other activities left me feeling totally uncoordinated and unsatisfied. I breathed a sigh of relief at my first yoga class. Finally I had found something that felt right for me. This inevitably led me to Yoga Teacher Training. Initially I trained in the Iyengar tradition, which provided a detailed and technical understanding of yoga poses and bodies. This discipline and attention to detail, combined with many years of practice and broader study, provided a wonderful foundation on which to build. Paul Kelly is right when he sings “from little things big things will grow”.
Happily farewelling a corporate career, I started teaching yoga from home from nothing, built a successful home business, moved into a rented studio in a partnership and evolved into operating by myself and purchasing the studio. This enabled me to make significant improvements, including building a Healing Room and the installation of a large pyramid skylight to increase the energy in the studio. Symphisis has become a place for people to feel safe to connect with who they are, to explore, express and be themselves - all in an atmosphere of love and support.
My way of teaching yoga has evolved into Yoga Spiritually. It's exciting to guide people towards more connection, understanding and freedom; physically and emotionally. My desire now is to spread this knowledge far and wide through teacher training.
My spiritual development has been under the guidance of Sphinx Spiritual and I have taken opportunities to train in different modalities of healing. It has been exciting to continue to learn and grow and to see the growth in people as they gain a deeper understanding of themselves and release emotional and physical pain. I am grateful that I can continue to grow and learn and am not limited by age.
