Back in 1995, managing my stress levels led me to Yoga, when I worked as an IT Support Analyst, for a large law firm in Birmingham. My local gym was running Yoga classes, and made me appreciate how hard it was for me to relax, not to mention how inflexible I was!
I completed the 3 year/500 Hour BWY Teaching Diploma in 2006, and since then I have qualified in many other forms of Yoga including: Yoga for Strength & Yoga for Sport, Children & Teens Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety and Depression, and most recently Yoga for Trauma – a form of therapeutic Yoga.
I’ve trained with some amazing and world renowned teachers; these include Peter Blackaby (author of Intelligent Yoga’), Alistair Shearer (Yoga Sutras), and Philip Xerri (Classical Pranayama), and more recently in Yoga for Trauma with Eleanor Rose Grace.
A move to Northamptonshire in 2007, I gave up my corporate career and set up Pamela Deal Yoga. Now in my 15th year of teaching, I offer classes in the local community as well as private yoga sessions, workshops and day retreats.
My own health journey and recovery: being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome in 2012 (a rare auto-immune condition affecting the nerves), has given me an insight into the strength of positive thinking and overcoming hurdles with Yoga.
I also love being outside, being upside down, walking in the fresh air; being by the sea, reading, a good film, as well as wine, cheese, Gin and baking (which is why I need to do walking and do Yoga!)
