About Abhaya Rupa

When I was in my mid thirties I was looking for something, I was not sure who I was or where I was going, so I started my quest…….. marathon running, parachuting [only one jump mind you!] heptathlons [had trouble with the canoeing it was hard to get away from the bank!] and so the search went until one day I was drawn to a Yoga Class.  

The class was just right for me and the teacher guided me on my journey, I then felt the need to visit India and the Himalayas .which endorsed my belief that I was on the right path for me. 

I became Abhaya Rupa in 1995 and my quest still continues and I am affiliated to Mandala Yoga Ashram.  I decided that I needed to retrain as a Yoga Teacher and I completed the Teacher Training at Mandala Yoga Ashram through The British Wheel of Yoga which is the Sport England National Governing Body for Yoga. 

My qualifications are:

Mandala Yoga Ashram trained Teacher, British Wheel of Yoga acredited
Trained in:
  • Shatkarma
  • Asana
  • Pranayama
  • Mudra
  • Bandha
  • Yoga Nidra
  • Meditation Practices
  • Safety aspects of teaching Yoga
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Professional Studies
  • Study of selected Yoga Texts
  • Mandala Yoga Ashram Chakra Training course Dimploma which consisted of 32 days full training.  During this period I received in-epth theoretical and practical teachings on the Chakras and was guided into my own experiential understanding of the Chakras through systematic tutoring and personal practice.

Yoga is my way of life and I feel that to bring the benefits that I have received to others is now my quest.
