My name is Bram Williams. My principle current teacher is from the Mahasiddha Yoga School in Oxford, with whom I undertook my British Wheel of Yoga Diploma. Most of the practical, ethical and philosophical study was held at the Samye Ling Buddhist Centre in London, while also attending regular classes in the Kashmir Style of Yoga, in Tai Chi and in Kum Nye (Tibetan Healing Practices). My own daily yoga practice has evolved over the years into a subtle, meditative approach to asana (yoga posture) with a large emphasis on pranayama (breath control) as a lead into seated meditation. Studying in mindfulness, and both Shamatha and Vipassana meditation at SRSG (a respected yoga college) in Northern India means I am fortunate to have contact with my teacher there, as well as studying with teachers from the Himalayan Institute in America. I also undertook the BWY Meditation Modules with BWY Diploma Course Tutor Maarten Vermasse. I also studied Mindfulness, Meditation and Lojong with Michael Stone. Having trained in many styles and forms of yoga over more than 15 years, my own teaching approach is flexible and adaptable to the needs of a particular group (or individual). The emphasis of my teaching vocabulary stresses breath release, so awareness is directed to the sensation of the posture, rather than on a body aesthetic or idealised end result. Im a Foundation Course Tutor and Trainee Diploma Course Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and a senior yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance UK.
