About the Author
Sam is a senior yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK and teaches yoga in his weekly public classes and he has a well-established yoga teacher training school in Berkshire, UK. Sam focuses on ‘teaching to teach’ and educating his students on the effects of postures on the body as a whole. Sam teaches with enthusiasm, and brings warmth and clarity to his explanations, enabling his students to easily visualize and work with the body. His unique style of teaching unites pupil and teacher in an atmosphere of fun and wellbeing. He’s also well known for his attention to detail and precision in postures. At all times encouraging his students to extend their potential and to work through their limitations. It is Sam’s intention to develop a world-class yoga school that concentrates on teaching excellence, developing supportive teacher communities, and promoting yoga as an integral part of everyone’s daily health routine. Sam has had a multi-national lifestyle, having lived, studied and taught in many different places around the globe. “I was born in Kampala, Uganda. Both my parents were from India. I was educated in Uganda, followed by High School and University in Vancouver, Canada. I came to UK in early 1971 and it is here I met and married my wife, Coral. We have been living in Berkshire now for the past 35 years and have two sons – Doug and Ian.” Encouraged by his father, Sam began his yoga journey as a young child, but it wasn’t until he suffered a serious injury to his lower back as an adult, that he found himself turning to yoga as a serious practice. “It was the result of a wrong move in a squash game. Since then I found myself moving further away from my regular gym sessions and more towards yoga.” On a yoga retreat in 1999 Sam met Ruth White, an inspirational and dynamic Iyengar yoga teacher who had been taught by Mr BKS Iyengar. It was with Ruth that he decided to complete a three year yoga teaching programme, and has never looked back. “I am very interested in understanding the human body and how the regular practice of yoga can benefit and affect the body, mind and spirit. I eventually gave up my job in IT and have been teaching yoga for many years now. I love the satisfaction I get from teaching a large group of students.”
