I have been practicing Yoga for the last 14 years, 11 of those under the guidance of Bill Wood, under whom I also
did my Teacher training. The Yoga we practice is inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who was a personal student of both Iyengar and Krishnamurti. The resulting practice is very much her own creation, one which affirms the body's inner knowing, fluidity, grace, poetry. Over the last 5 years I have been teaching Yoga alongside working as a doctor, Academic Tutor, GP mentor, Small Group Facilitator at Plymouth University.
A yoga teacher since 1994, Bill has been most inspired by Diane Long, a long time student of the late Vanda Scaravelli,
who he has been studying with since 1996.
He teaches groups and private classes in south Devon, weekend workshops all around the UK, and has run Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Bristol and Totnes.
Bill also has a long history of involvement in meditation and psychotherapy, both of which continually inform and inspire his approach to yoga in its broader sense. He also has a psychotherapy practice, working from his home in south Devon.
Offering small group yoga classes, individual lessons and yoga therapy in the Exeter area in addition to retreats
and training courses in Devon. The main emphasis of my teaching is the ability to be in the present moment. For the greater part of our lives we allow the mind to "time travel" moving backward into memory, and forward into the future, I like to explore how it feels and what it means to be a little more present in our daily lives.

Daisy Birthing® is a unique birth preparation class which combines all the physical and emotional benefits of tradition
pregnancy yoga, antenatal tai chi and a birth hypnosis programme.
What really sets us apart from other traditional antenatal education programmes however, is the fact we work on those hidden muscles which are so key for important birthing, but not usually tackled or even mentioned in a more traditional antenatal preparation programme. By learning to release and relax the psoas muscle, the piriformis, the hip flexors, our antenatal classes really can help you become more open without having to squat or take the knees far apart.
The programme is FEDANT approved so you can be sure that you are getting a high quality antenatal class.
