Tom practices, assists and teaches with Hamish Hendry and Roberta Giannotti at Astanga Yoga London. He travels annually to practice with R. Sharath Jois at the KPJAYI in Mysore and in 2013 he was authorised to teach the primary ashtanga series as set out by the Institute. In early 2015 he was invited to assist Sharath at KPJAYI.
Tom discovered the practice quite late in life, aged 37, after many years working as a chef. He had stiff knees, a dodgy back and an absent mind and he was looking for something to ground and humble him. The practice was a powerfully transformative and positive experience for him and he feels privileged to now be able to share it as a teacher. To say Astanga Yoga changed his life is not exactly an overstatement. Tom is a gentle and sympathetic teacher who is committed to helping his fellow practitioners create a sustainable and nurturing experience on the yoga mat.
