Following a colourful and diverse life travelling, teaching and studying in topics ranging from Nutrition to Law, Stewart is now firmly established in the devotional Yoga of Abhyasa.
Stewart has an MA in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation and is a PhD candidate at SOAS University of London.
His Sadhana commenced after a severe back injury in the 1980s which left him in constant pain and mild disability. He experienced an amazing recovery through intensive Astanga Vinyasa Mysore yoga practice.
It led him towards an extensive yoga education with teachers from around the world who have had a profound effect on his style of teaching. This is a radical philosophical approach which is faithful to the traditions of yoga. This modern dharma combines yogasana, dhyana, jappa mantra and pranayama. Along with this it considers more current issues such as veganism, political and environmental activisim, human and animal rights, indology and much more.
Stewart is eternally grateful to Hamish Hendry (Astanga London), Shri Shreeshadree (Mysore), David Life, Sharon Gannon (Jivamukti Yoga), Sabel Thaim and Jennifer Dale who all contributed greatly to change his life.
Since 2003 he has taught extensively in London, India, Milan, Sri Lanka and Ibizia with annual workshops worldwide.
Stewart is a Senior Registered Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance Professional UK and has trained over 400 teachers at 200hr, 500 hr and advanced level.
