Overview

Whatever needs writing on yoga, I can help. I draft and edit memoirs, articles, websites, profiles and bios. I have more than 20 years of professional experience working with words, for Reuters and the New York Times and as an author and editor.

I also hold an M.A. in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation (from SOAS in London), and have been studying yoga in various forms since the 1990s. I teach courses on yoga philosophy for the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, and am writing a book about yoga history.

I have a talent for helping other people express their ideas.
