Teachers Profile: Brigid
I originally trained in dance. This interest in movement of the body and the effect on mind and well being, has been like a thread running through my life - leading me into an intense period of Yoga study.
I studied Sivananda style yoga in India - spending several months in the Ashram.
I then completed a 3 year British Wheel of Yoga training in London with Swami Dayamurti an inspirational teacher whose roots are in the Satyananda tradition.
I discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga when I attended a workshop with Dena Kingsberg at The Life Centre in London around 1999. I experienced this style of yoga as incredibly powerful - such an energising yet calming effect on mind and body. Shortly afterwards I met John Scott who has been an amazing source of inspiration ever since. I was also very fortunate to attend workshops with Patthabbi Jois when he visited London and be a part of the incredible grpup experience of being taught by the direct Guru.
I went on to complete teacher training with John and Lucy Scott in New Zealand. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to study with John and Lucy who are direct students of Patthabbi Jois.
I am now dedicating my time to teaching small groups and individuals the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Method. In this way I am promoting and continuing to pass on the teachings I have received through this very special and unique lineage.
