Zephyr’s approach to teaching
As well as the physical side to yoga asana, Zephyr has a great interest in integrating psychology, yogic philosophy, and the attraction of self study within her practice, teaching and lifestyle.
In the modern world Yoga has become both fashionable and trendy. It has come a long way from when Zephyr was exposed to Yoga by her mother in the early 80’s where Jazzercise leotards and the “New Age” movement of post-70’s hippie culture collided. Throughout her late teens and twenties Zephyr used Yoga as a personal therapy for chronic pain and at the same time a source for spiritual guidance as she struggled as a young mother watching her husband succumb to cancer. She found in it, a lifestyle that has served her in her quest to find balance and strove to understand more to fulfil her own challenges and existential identity. For Zephyr, Yoga is so much more than stretching and breath work, it is an essential tool to navigate life. The philosophy-centric approach to Zephyr’s teachings highlight her reverence for a discipline that has brought that balance and set her on what she calls “the middle path”.
Yoga is more relevant to people’s lives than ever and can be integrated into many philosophies and religious followings seamlessly. It is this new found global awareness and interest by new seekers that continues to fuel Zephyr’s passion for teaching.
Zephyr is a firm believer in the practice, discipline and relationship between teacher and student and actively encourages Yogi’s to seek guidance from those with whom you find a connection. The philosophies of Yoga have been interpreted for millennia by different texts and teachers but the underlying message of Union and physical, mental and spiritual well-being is timeless. Today, Zephyr continues studying with her main teachers drawing on their living wisdom of Yoga and passing those lessons on to her own students.
She integrates the transformative teachings of Doug Keller, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Pema Chödrön, Mary Taylor & Richard Freeman’s Ashtanga methods, Himalayan Institute and Para Yoga in her teaching.
She has also conducted workshops globally using Doug Keller’s “The Therapeutic Wisdom of Yoga” passing on these key teachings to her students.
Her teachers inspire her to share the blessings found in Yoga, Tantra and the art of energetically sequencing bespoke therapeutic practices for students of all different abilities.
She is registered with Yoga Alliance US & UK as a 500 hour Yoga Teacher.

Resources for support
As I have followed my path, I have realised support from others is essential. Why go it alone when resources for support abound?
