I have been practising yoga since 1979 and my practice has supported me through many life challenges.  I decided to train as a teacher so that I could share the benefits of yoga with others and completed my initial four-year teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2002.

During my training, I became interested in the teaching of T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar.  After a further three years of study, I graduated in 2008 with a diploma to teach in this tradition.  This qualification is recognised as an advanced teaching diploma by BWY and allowed me to register as a Yoga Therapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.  I have been on several study trips to the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai.  This was set up as an independent trust by Desikachar to honour his father Krishnamacharya.  Its remit is to continue his work of teaching yoga to individuals.  I am undertaking a Yoga Therapy Course with Dr N Chandreasekaran in Chennai.

I run regular Saturday morning workshops in Glasgow in addition to weekly classes and individual tuition for students.  I will be teaching an Introductory Course in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar at In The Moment starting in September 2016.  I have previously run this course and here are some student comments:-

“A great starting point to develop knowledge of yoga philosophy and learn how to use yoga off the mat to bring more peace, love and joy into your life.  A starting point for a wonderfully fulfilling journey of self discovery and realisation.  My yoga practice has developed to include mantra and meditation, a move away from a purely physical practice to one that provides my mind with space to breathe.” ~ Claire

“Taking part in Ann Hunter’s Introductory course has been a great experience.  Ann’s knowledge, dedication to preparation and delivery of the course together with her encouragement, support and guidance have led me to develop a regular yoga practise that expands into every aspect of my life.  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of this and to have learned more than I could have ever imagined.” ~ Moira
