About the teacher:
Paula began practicing Yoga well over 20 years ago and was drawn to Yoga through depression and anxiety.
Previously Paula had always worked in the Health and Fitness industry, both in the UK and overseas.
''My initial introduction to Yoga was whilst living in Sweden. I then trained with David Swenson in The Ashtanga system. Through my love of Dance and Music (born into a family of musicians), I travelled to The Kripalu Institute in Massachusetts to train in Vinyasa flow with Shiva Rea. After opening my own Yoga and Wellness Centre 5 years ago, I felt it was time to incorporate some Yin into my practice to balance my busy life, and restore my mind and body. I have been to trainings with Sarah Powers and continue my study to the present day. I also run a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training School, as well as still actively teaching myself.’’
