A wee bit of the training background for my yoga qualifications. The British Wheel of Yoga Training is Ofqual-regulated, Level 4 yoga teacher training qualifications that is on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). The regulated BWYQ Certificate and Diploma qualifications require level 4 attainment and are therefore equivalent to foundation Degree level.
As well as the above I’m also an Accredited CBT Therapist and Accredited Trainer to Diploma Level for Counselling and Therapy Courses. I have also completed Mindfulness Teacher Training, and professional teaching award. I love the type of work that I do as it combines the connection of mind, body and spirit and the older I get, the more I realise we can’t attune or attend to these aspects of ourselves in isolation – they are all part of the ‘self’ that needs care.
It was also important to me to ensure that my classes and teaching are open to as many members of our communities as possible so I work towards making classes, asana, breath and relaxation more accessible. i am an official Accessible Yoga Ambassador and with that in mind I also try to make the language and concepts of yoga, CBT, counselling and mindfulness more accessible for every day living.
