Rob has 25 years experience within the practice of yoga and natural healthcare. This includes a Masters Degree in Chiropractic. His courses draw on the many areas of study he has undertaken, as well as his personal yoga practice. This then gives the student a unique insight into how the body works. Within his courses, there is a continuous reference back to yoga. This includes how anatomy and physiology can be utilised to make the yoga practice not only safer, but also smarter. His aim is that through a greater understanding of the body one can better focus their efforts in their own practice. Rob is a long time Vipassana Meditator.
