I'm Bev Appleby and I am a certified level 1 Iyengar Yoga teacher here in Worthing, West Sussex, UK.
I have been teaching general level classes for beginners and improvers for 8 years in person and online.
It is a pleasure to be able to pass on what I have learnt on my yoga journey so far and I hope to see you in a class soon 😀
My personal Yoga practice totals 18 years and in that time I have been fortunate enough to have been guided, taught and accessed by senior level Iyengar teachers, many of whom I maintain my practice with regularly. I have also spent time in India over several short and longer term trips. These experiences have enhanced my entire Yoga understanding further.
I was drawn to Iyengar yoga because of the indepth understanding that Iyengar teachers shared. The network of Iyengar practioners extends globally so wherever I am, I'm always able to find an Iyengar yoga class to join.
I wasn't particularly athletic growing up and I am not naturally flexible. In fact, I could bearly touch my toes when I started yoga. I had little strength, stamina or will but body awareness soon came about when I started to practice Iyengar yoga. I injured myself (torn meniscus) in my early twenties but I learnt to best manage and eventually heal this injury with Iyengar yoga.
I live a modern life with family and financial commitments. I choose to integrate a regular Iyengar yoga practice into my life as this provides necessary quiet time for myself. In doing this, I cultivate a continued sense of self awareness
I'm a practical and down-to-earth person who strives to remain light hearted and practice daily Satya (truth) in my thoughts and actions.
This is how I best share and teach Iyengar yoga
