Bram Williams has been a yoga teacher at the City Lit for 10+ years. He holds a British Wheel of Yoga Teaching Diploma. His own daily yoga practice has evolved over the years into a subtle, meditative approach to asana (yoga posture) with a large emphasis on pranayama (breath control) as a lead into seated meditation. Studying in mindfulness, and both Shamatha and Vipassana meditation in Northern India means he is very fortunate to have contact with his teacher there, as well as studying with teachers from the Himalayan Institute in America. Having trained in many styles and forms of yoga over more than 18 years, Bram’s teaching approach is flexible and adaptable to the needs of a particular group (or individual). he emphasis of his teaching vocabulary stresses breath release, so awareness is directed to the 'sensation' of the posture, rather than on a body aesthetic or idealised end result. A Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals, a Yoga Elder with the Independent Yoga Network as well as Diploma Course Tutor with the British Wheel of Yoga, Bram is also a qualified Lip Reading Tutor.
