Hi, I'm Paul Cupit, an accredited Yoga teacher and Thai Yoga Massage therapist. My Yoga classes and massage therapy room are both located within the historic Sherwood Community Centre in Nottingham. I teach weekly yoga classes, one to one yoga, monthly yoga workshops and work with massage clients on an appointment basis. I work to teach people how to look after their bodies and minds in order to live happy, healthy lives. With the range of services I offer, I aim to be accessible and inclusive to all people regardless of age, ability or health.
I began to practice Yoga in 2008 and started to teach in 2011. Taking insight from the roots of traditional Indian Yoga, I follow the Ashtanga Yoga system for my own personal practice.
In 2010 I spent a week at the Santosa yoga festival in Somerset. Here I met Dr Kamaraj Rajendran who had come from India to teach his style of yoga. Little did I know at the time, he had trained in Ashtanga yoga and his dynamic teaching resonated with me instantly. Throughout the week I could see that Kamaraj was giving massage treatments from one of the tents, so I decided to have one myself having no idea of what to expect. During the massage I was rocked, pulled, pressed and stretched in a variety of different ways as Kamaraj worked my entire body, toe to head. After the treatment I felt amazed and energised but calm, supple and totally relaxed. From here the seed was planted and I knew I had to learn this unique art form. I later found out the treatment was called Thai Massage or Thai Yoga Massage.
In 2011 I began training and study in Thai Yoga Massage with Julian Kemp. I have trained at both Practitioner and Advanced levels of qualification.
I take a holistic approach and continue with my own personal practice and professional study of Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage.
