I came into Yoga in the Mid 80s learning Transcendental Meditation, which ignited my interest in Eastern Philosophy. In 1986 I embarked on my first trip to India and started to learn about the great Indian Saints, discovering Ramana Maharishi through the books of Paul Brunton. Another book I read during that time was the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, this book was to lay the foundation for my interest in Kriya Yoga and has been my daily Sadhana since 2007.

We offer the 11 month Kriya Preparation course at the centre taking students each November to Ananda Assisi to receive their Kriya. As well as Kriya Yoga I am an ardent student of Advaita Vedanta, and run weekly Living Consciously groups.

Also leading 4 retreats a year , 2 to India ( Rishikesh and Kerala) and 2 to Ananda Assisi in Italy
