About Simon

Simon has trained in classical Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyassa styles of yoga in India and has taught yoga in Goa for five years.  SImon has also taught yoga in Malaysia, Malawi and the UK for several years (see http://www.simon-barth-yoga.co.uk/yoga-sessions/yoga-classes-sheffield-2 for details of classes taught currently).  With a background in psychology, counselling and NLP, Simon tries to offer a little more of an "inner journey" through yoga.  His background as a teacher and then mentor in mainstream education gives Simon a special understanding of the barriers to learning and a sensitivity to the individual needs of the learner. 


Simon's experience as an educationalist and of working in school improvement teams at the LEA has lead him to devising and delivering high quality Yoga Teacher training courses with his highly experienced and talented collegue Jane Collins (see http://collinsandbarth.co.uk/ for further details)


Simon also specialises in Yoga for Athletes and works with Sheffield Wednesday Football Club and Sheffield Eagles ruby league teams.
