I am such a strong advocate of lifelong learning. For me as a coach and instructor, I perform better when I’m also in a learning environment and as I get older, I really appreciate how understanding and working with our body and mind can be so rewarding, especially when I can share what I have learned with the community.

As well as martial arts and fitness, I have been studying yoga for a while. It’s something that I have dipped in and out of over the years. Parallel interests in ta’i chi, qi gong and ayurveda means I am never far away from matters concerned with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Most recently I have been studying Iyengar Yoga and hope to supplement this by practicing Daoist Flow Yoga which integrates yoga and qi gong. Come back and visit this page during 2023 to see how that journey is going – when I can I will share my learning.
