Having spent the last 40 years immersed in the study, practice and teaching of yoga, I feel more then ever that these universal Ancient teachings and practices can transform lives, especially in these uncertain turbulent times.
Growing up in South Africa I went through a period of extreme turmoil and questioning. During that time I was completely moved and inspired by some Monks and Yogis that I met from the Himalayas, and about the same time I heard Classical Indian music on the Sitar. These experiences changed my life and direction.
I trained as a meditation teacher with the T.M movement of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Soon after that I went to India via Greece and immersed myself in the study of Yoga and Classical Indian music. I explored many different styles and approaches to yoga in the over eight years I lived there, and I share this approach in the way I teach.
I have been teaching a World Music Course at York College for the last 20 years . I also taught Yoga as a therapy for at risk teenagers at the Children's Home of York for over 15 years. I presently teach at the Lutheran Senior Citizen's Home and am involved with 2 drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers where I offer yoga and music therapy.
