Elaine Fletcher

Having trained with BWY, I have been increasingly drawn to the practice of asana taught by Peter Blackaby and others who emphasis the somatic approach. This extends to investigating the subtlety of mudra and various means of exploring the breath to provide a means of settling and a sense of well being without necessarily striving to achieve but sometimes finding things unfold be it in asana or other aspects of practice.

I have benefited from many others in their various areas of expertise – including Philip Xerrri teaching of pranayama, Swami Dharmanda's teaching of mudra, as well as inspiration from colleagues.

I have been a DCT with BWY since 2000, have taught Foundation Courses and Diploma Courses and continue to enjoy the journey.

Considering the possibility of maintaining a similar awareness as move from less physically demanding practices to those that may be considered more challenging.
