He has worked in hospices, hospitals, pupil referral units and schools and one-to-one individualised care is his primary approach.


Colin embarked on his first Yoga Therapy Training in India that soon led him to study yoga therapy with the late T.K.V. Desikachar, the son of Professor T. Krishnamacharya – known as the grandfather of modern yoga that we know today.


Colin is director of the BWY London Yoga Festival and sits on the Professional Specific Board for Yoga Therapy with the Complimentary Natural Health Care Council (CNHC), and is a committee member of The British Council of Yoga Therapy. He is currently in the process of setting up The Professional Association of Yoga Therapy in order to ensure ongoing high standards of Yoga Therapy in the UK. He also continues his studies under the careful guidance of his teacher Bernard Bouanchaud in France.

The next four year teacher training course will start in 2019, as a BWY accredited group.
