My yoga journey started with John Porter's weekly Hatha yoga classes in London in 1995. On leaving London in 2003 I practised in Kent with Carol Brewer (Sampoorna yoga) and Alan Bain (Hatha yoga). Following moving to Wiltshire in 2006 I was a student of Lydia Holmes and Edgar Stringer's (Iyengar yoga) classes. I began studying with Simon Chandler and Bev Sowerby (Asthtanga yoga) in 2010 and following their relocation in 2014 have been continuing my yoga studies with their designated successors the wonderful Sheridan Forbes followed by Sylvia Delfino and since December 2017 Chrissie Gregory also. From February 2014 until untimely demise August 2020 the lovely Bristol Bikram/ Cityzen Yoga crew enhanced my practise.
I feel huge gratitude to all my teachers past and present. They have inspired my yoga practise and changed many aspects of my life for the better. I hope I can pass on to you some of the wisdom and generosity they shared with me.
In February 2012 I completed a 500 hour British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Teacher Training Diploma Course taught by Paul Fox.
I have been teaching Hatha Yoga since July 2010.
I am also a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registered Physiotherapist (MSc Advanced Physiotherapy University College London 2005, BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy Kings College London 1999) currently employed by Nuffield Health. I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, my full name is Virginia Clother.
