I teach Vinyasa and yin yoga at a surfers’ camp in Sri Lanka. I manage all aspects of the yoga side of the business. Prior to coming to Sri Lanka in November, I worked in Lanzarote and London as a freelance yoga teacher, working in gyms and teaching privately. I managed relationships with venue providers that I work with, carried out research and marketing as well as managed effective delivery of services and followed up with clients. I have practiced yoga for over 15 years.
UK Civil ServiceJune 2007 - February 2017Policy Adviser
During this time, I worked across the Civil Service as a policy adviser and researcher. Some of my tasks, experiences and achievements were:
~ I engaged with a diverse set of stakeholders.
~ I scoped and developed new projects and organised small to large scale high level international and national conferences.
~ I advised Ministers on measures that could reduce the impact of transport on air quality. I managed two funding programmes worth £17.5m (20 projects in total) that helped local authorities reduce harmful emissions from buses and improve public health.
~ I managed a network of 3,500 scientists and engineers across Government, set up a successful mentoring scheme and organised an annual conference for 250 members at which the Science Minister presented.
~ I researched for evidence, analysed and reported to senior management and Ministers on the regulatory burdens of small to medium size businesses. I was part of several short-term projects that aimed to reduce these burdens on small businesses, promoted the benefits of good regulation and reviewed the remits of economic regulators.
