Billie de Melo Wood, Yoga and Meditation Teacher
Billie was introduced to Vipassana meditation at the age of 8 years old and this became the foundation for her continued focus on practical philosophies. In 2008 she trained as a Sivananda yoga teacher and since then has expanded her teaching to include pre and post-natal, restorative, Yin, dynamic and children’s classes. Alongside teaching Yoga, Billie is also a licensed Acupuncture practitioner with a degree and post graduate certificate from the UK’s leading Chinese Medicine school ‘The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine’. With over a decade of experience Billie is able to draw on an ancient body of knowledge, applying the teachings from classic texts, particularly Lao Tze’s ‘Tao Te Ching’ and Patanjali’s ‘Yoga Sutras’.
Classic Yoga on Saturday and Sunday morning at Wider Horizons will be a fully practical application of yoga including a combination of pranayama, mudras, asanas, prayer and meditation that inspire a reconnection to our human experience. This class is grounding and mid-level intensity and will ease you into your day, getting you ready for the proceeding workshops. All levels welcome.
