Nigel Jones - teacher
Nigel Jones has been practicing Astanga Yoga since 1992. He lived and worked at The Practice Place in Crete (now Yoga Plus) and studied with Derek Ireland for 2 years. He returned to London in 1996, where he continued to practice with John Scott. Subsequently Nigel took the British Wheel of Yoga Teacher's Diploma.
He has been teaching Astanga Yoga classes, courses and workshops in London since 1996. He has taught in most of London's Yoga Centres and has taken many students from beginners level to becoming teachers themselves. Being naturally rather a stiff person, he has much sympathy with people of a similar constitution. He likes to encourage all types of people to take up yoga, not just the strong and flexible. His classes are friendly and un-intimidating and he encourages students to achieve some sort of autonomy in their Yoga practice, where they can begin to think and make decisions for themselves, without dogmatic interference from a teacher. He has a very hands-on approach and believes in getting as much feedback as possible from his students.
