Phyl was born in New Zealand, also known as The Land of The Long White Cloud. Here there are more sheep than people. She always wanted to travel and managed to complete her nursing training before setting off on many adventures which would take her to 4 out of the 5 continents of the world (Phyl doesn't like the cold much).
Nursing proved to be a perfect way to finance continuing travel and to spend time living in numerous countries, her favourite continents being Africa, South America and the Middle East.
Phyl’s first encounter with yoga was with a group of friends when she was 19 years old. It was a very uncomfortable experience as she discovered her ability to move in different directions was very limited. However the real affair with yoga that was to last a lifetime began in India, in an Ashram on the banks of the Ganges river.
It’s hard to believe that Phyl never wanted to be a yoga teacher, and only underwent the training to stop herself jumping on the next boat or plane to somewhere more exciting. It meant staying in one place for 2 years until the course was completed. A wise teacher left her all his clients and yoga equipment when he decided to leave the country. The classes continued to be popular and so the yoga journey rolled on.
Phyl has qualified in different styles of yoga including Iyengar and Astanga. From these she has developed her own particular blend and experience. In more recent years Swing, Hot yoga and Reiki have been added into the blend.
Nowadays Phyl can be found teaching in schools, gyms, corporate offices and pretty much anywhere there is space to lay a yoga mat. Recently Phyl has started Tula Well-Being Centre near Ascot, Berkshire providing a serene location to practice various styles of yoga including hot yoga and swing yoga
Phyl teaches in Wokingham, Crowthorne, Chavey Down, Bracknell, Ascot and surrounding areas
