Since her introduction to the yoga practices of asana, pranayam, mantra and meditation by her mother as a child in the 1970s, Devi has used yoga as a form of self enquiry to explore and enjoy her experience of self-hood and life.
Despite her mother always saying she should teach, Devi waited until 1999 to teach yoga, feeling that one is better equipped to teach after experiencing a little of life. This life experience came in the form of travelling the UK, Australia and the Middle East before coming home to her native Lancashire to study for a degree in Environmental Sciences. Despite successful careers as a Environmental / Research Chemist and Secondary School Science Teacher, Devi felt she was not living her own truth. She only truly felt present on her yoga mat or meditation cushion. In 2007 Devi decided to commit her life to yoga and handed in her notice at her part time school teaching job.
Freed from the restriction of working for an external authority, Devi immersed herself in a more intimate experience and expression of yoga philosophy; spending at least one month a year in India, practising extended periods of mouna (silence) and exploring the nature of really feeling the present moment.
Blessed with wise and authentic teachers (from the disciplines of Classical Hatha Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda, Iyengar Yoga and Dynamic Yoga) who facilitated her ability to cast aside cultural conditioning and be open to a direct interaction with life, Devi began to develop the art of FEELING NOW.
Currently teaching 12 yoga classes a week in the Preston, Chorley and Blackburn areas of Lancashire and offering private tuition in Feel Now Yoga studio in Whittle-le-Woods, Devi serves a diverse range of user groups, from those with profound physical and mental limitations to professional athletes (including Preston North End, Blackburn Rovers and Everton FCs).
Devi is insured and qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga. She is Editor of the BWY publication 'Yoga: The World Over' and has been delivering BWY Foundation Courses since 2008.
