Yoga Classes in Lancaster & Carnforth
About me.....blog spot
Pamela Johnson is a registered British Wheel of Yoga Teacher.
I started practising Yoga in 1999 (eek 20 years ago) after feeling the pressure of stress in the workplace. It started with a simple relaxation class moved on to Ashtanga yoga which I did for some years, and I now practice Hatha yoga which I teach.
There are many different styles and classes types, find a style that you warm to and stick with it. It is all 'yoga'.
I started teaching training in February 2009. Three years & 500 hours of study later I completed my BWY Teaching Diploma, qualification in November 2011. I use any profit earned from teaching classes to attend workshops and retreats to increase and develop my learning.
Blog spot...... from June 2019 onwards, I intend to inform here, what teacher training workshops I have attended this year so far and how this has affected my teaching, along with what my current aims are for my regular classes along with any creative idea's I am planning in my head for workshops and retreats.
So far in 2019, I have attended three teacher training full days.
Yoga for digestive health in Manchester at the yoga campus site.
Dru yoga for the hips and spine, allowed me to play around with ideas of unlocking the facia of the body and again explore backing off. Playing with softer movements can actually let you in a little more.
Yoga for strength with Lesley Dike, was a fun day in May.
I am looking forward to my next teacher training event for Mindful Strength October 2019

I have now completed a new course with CHEK Europe to become a Level 1 Holistic Lifestyle Coach. I intend then to run courses and 121 sessions based around this. This course will enhance what I already know about lifestyle and give it structure. A Holistic lifestyle coach looks at the whole body and mind. Its not personal training - its lifestyle changing....... its a long term commitment to make permanent changes in your life...... ask me about it
