Anne Bird, Dru Yoga Teacher
Yoga helps to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal itself. Over time, through posture work (Asanas), breathing practices (Pranayama) and relaxation, yoga encourages the body and mind to become flexible and strong. Yoga can also help to develop an awareness of an inner peace and stillness that we all have within us which can be tapped into at any time.
I have been practicing Yoga for over 30 years. What's kept me practicing for so many years? The positive benefits I feel from regular posture work which include stable blood pressure, less prone to mood swings, flexible joints, good core muscle strength, less back pain.
I qualified as as British Wheel of Yoga Teacher in 2004 and as a Dru Yoga Teacher in September 2012. In my teaching practice I use the knowledge I gained from both qualifications to provide enjoyable learning in a calm environment. To keep up-to-date with new practices and the benefits of these practices I regularly attend continued professional development days.
I currently teach in a cabin situated in my back garden, the garden is surrounded by trees, birdsong and tranquility.
