Vanessa has practiced yoga for the past fourteen years and trained as a teacher with Seasonal Yoga in 2014. She lives near Farnham in Surrey and teaches mixed ability classes. She became interested in meditation and was introduced to Traditional Yoga by a fellow teacher. She attended her first Awareness Meditation weekend at the beginning of 2015 taught by Anna Bhushan and Natasha Curran as well as a workshop with Dr. Kumar later the same year. Inspired by the teachers, Dr. Kumar's vast knowledge and experience and the ethos of the Yoga Healing Foundation, she trained as a Traditional Yoga teacher in July 2016. She loves sharing the positive and life affirming benefits of this technique with her students. Vanessa says that since practicing in this tradition she has felt a sense of inner harmony, feels less stressed and is a better mum to her children, cats and puppy!
