She is certified to teach people with ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and related conditions through Fiona Agombar.
She is also qualified through BSY and NCFE for Pregnancy (pre & post-natal Yoga) as well as Healing Meditation.
Once Alka was qualified and had sufficient experience, she started teaching in numerous church and community halls.
Alka's style of teaching combined with her warm personality proved very popular with her students.
In May 2007 she was struck with Breast cancer, undergoing operations, Chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and true to her positive nature & zest for life she bounced back and is now teaching at her private studio.
She has developed her own unique style of teaching where she combines mixed ability in one class, whether it is a beginner, intermediate or even someone who is pregnant. Her classes are quite challenging although at the end of the class one is left completely relaxed.
She has created a warm and friendly ambience in her studio with soft lighting and candles.
Alka continues to encourage and inspire her students who are from all walks of life with her own blend of yoga training mixed with a little humour to make the classes fun and enjoyable.
