Miranda used to be a schoolteacher, so teaching is a big part of who she is, and yoga has been a part of her life since her late teens. When she had children of her own, she trained as a hatha yoga teacher with Friends of Yoga and has now been teaching yoga for almost 20 years. She has explored many different forms of yoga including vinyasa flow, bhakti yoga (going to yoga festivals around the world), kundalini, Iyenagar and many others, and evolved her own style. But she has stayed true to the core practices of traditional hatha.
She has taken her training and teaching experience further over the years with yoga therapy, pre and postnatal yoga and continued training in anatomy. She describes her classes as mindful flow where she puts a strong emphasis on the breath, alignment, and safety in all postures. She likes to explain what effects the postures are having on the body so that students can take what they learn on the mat and use it to improve their day to day lives.
Miranda teaches a variety of classes ranging from very gentle classes for seniors or people with bad backs to strong and dynamic more fluid classes, giving stages of difficulty in poses. She stresses the importance of listening to the body and building up to stronger poses only when ready.
She has experience in teaching people with fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, hip and knee replacements, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, arthritis, IBS and many other issues and gives private sessions as well as including people like this into her gentler classes.
Miranda periodically runs yoga weekends in a beautiful valley in South Wales. She will be running courses that combine Zoom and residential weekends at her home in Wales.
