Thank you I'm on a mission to show gratitude and appreciation to the people that have supported  me to be where I am today. So, I start with saying thank you to you for reading my  posts, being in touch with me and supporting me in all the ways that you do.

I'm also deeply grateful for all of my teachers. So, today, I also want to say thank you to  my "close to home" yoga teacher, Swami Satyaprakash aka Ann Fletcher, Director of t  the Satyananda Yoga Centre Birmingham.

As my yoga teacher, trainer and mentor, Satyaprakash has given me over 15 years of  solid and beautiful teachings that have helped me to transform my life. She has also  become not only a great teacher of mine but a dear friend. It has been a difficult time  over the last year in the world of Satyananda yoga, yet she works ceaselessly to cut t  through the crap and share the love that she has for these profound yoga practices. She  has supported me through life's ups and downs and through my training and growth as  a yoga teacher, trainer and assessor. She was also there at my recent ordination as a  One Spirt Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Counsellor. She is dedicated, full on, doesn't  hold prisoners and is at the same time wonderfully caring and supportive.

This is why I am teaching a one-off yoga class on Wednesday 5 August 2015 in Birmingham and inviting you to attend if you are local. I teach nurturing yoga courses now and rarely teach general classes anymore but I am teaching this one as an act of gratitude for all of the yoga teachings that I have received through her that have helped me develop my own way of sharing my love of yoga.I am teaching a Nurturing Yoga session as part of Satyananda Yoga Summer School in Birmingham - There are other teachers teaching over the summer too if you can attend more than one.
