I was first introduced to yoga at 1998, at 18 years old, in the New Cross Iyenga Institute in London. At a time of inner turmoil and chaos the practice showed me home. To an inner light I had long forgotten. I left in tears. I had thought the purpose for being in London was to study Psychology so this is what I did finally completing a BSC, MSC and then a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2008. During this time, I also had the fortune of working on a home education program for children with Autism. I learnt so much from them and knew it was imperative that I share yoga with them too. This was because unlike many of the other tools, methodology, theories and programs I had been taught, Yoga started with what was right with them-just as it had reminded me. With little experience but seeing huge potential and possibility in this work, in 2005 I borrowed money to go to New York as had an urgency to study directly with the internationally renowned Sonia Sumar in the Yoga for the Special Child methodology. For many years I worked alongside Sonia and the incredible Jo Manual at the Special Yoga Centre. Additionally, having three pregnancies, births and the blessing of becoming a mother has enriched my yoga practice deeply and led me to have the privilege to study with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli as a student and now collaborating with them on new and exciting projects, especially around the profound gift of Yoga Nidra. There is more of course but if you feel called to know more about this work there is some information at www.themayacentre.org or you could contact me at email@example.com. With great respect and love
