Judy Cameron assisting Teacher Training in Ibiza 26th April to 2nd May 2018
I attended my first yoga class in 1974. However, it was not until I became pregnant with my first child while working as a nurse in Asia that I realised the transformative potential within Yoga. I gained enormous benefit from my practice at this time which gave me the confidence to go on to have my second child at home, and to become a midwife.
I trained initially in South India at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Kerala. I subsequently went on to train for a further 2 years with Janet Balaskas, Lolly Stirk and Yvonne Moore at the Active Birth Centre in London. It was at this time that I came to understand how a more intuitive approach to Yoga, based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, could allow something more beautiful to evolve in my practice.
I gained my Diploma in Teaching Yoga with the British Wheel of Yoga in the late 1990’s and have also completed a Diploma in Baby Yoga with Birthlight, and Yoga for the Special Child at the Special Yoga Centre in London. I am a qualified midwife and have a strong interest in the use of hypnosis in childbirth and teach HypnoBirthing and Hypnosis for Childbirth.
I teach a mixture of classes in the Scottish Highlands. My classes include Active Yoga, Mindful Yoga, Mixed Ability, Chair Based, Pregnancy, Postnatal Mother and Baby, and Special Yoga for Children. I also offer Couples Birth Preparation workshops, and HypnoBirthing on a private one-to-one basis. As Director of the YogaBirth Teacher Training and Tutor for both the BWY Pregnancy Module and the Postnatal Module, I have a deep interest in passing on my knowledge to other teachers. I also work as a Hatha Tutor on the Yoga Scotland Teacher Training Diploma in Edinburgh.
My current teachers are Diane Long, Sandra Sabatini and Christine Borg.
