In April 2012 I qualified as a Dru Yoga teacher by completing the South West Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course that included over 200 hours of training in anatomy and physiology, postures, breathing techniques and lesson planning, as well as requiring completion of four pieces of written work - extended essays on chakras and the spine, a teaching plan of five lessons given to a partially sighted client, and a series of reflections on different postures.
As well as being a qualified yoga teacher I have over twenty-five years of professional teaching experience that can be called upon to plan lessons and cater for a range of students within a class. I am a member of the Dru Professional Network and hold public liability insurance through Balens Ltd. I have been invited to help with the next South-West Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course.
As a Church of England Reader, I am required to have an up-to-date DBS check and to complete training in the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.
I came comparatively late to yoga and through a walking and yoga holiday came to know about and enjoy Dru Yoga. When the opportunity to train as a teacher in the South West came I seized it. I have begun to take small mixed ability classes in a local hall and have taught a partially sighted lady on a one to one basis. I have also led an informal fun yoga session for both Brownies and Rainbows, as well as using it in PE classes within my supply work.
I believe that yoga can be of benefit to anyone. Do not ask "Can I do yoga?", but "What can yoga do for me?"
