Sheridan Forbes

Sheridan attended the Arts Educational School in London in the early 1980s moving on to a career in dance and drama, eventually giving all this up to have her first baby and  moving to Bath.  She really enjoyed being a full time  mum bringing up her three daughters.

She started to practice Ashtanga yoga with Bev Sowerby and Simon Chandler in 2007. An immediate sense of the physical and psychological potential of this system of yoga encouraged Sheridan to become a committed practitioner ever since. As her practice has deepened, her historic injuries from being a professional dancer and runner have been overcome.

In 2012 she completed her British Wheel of Yoga foundation course and  began her Teacher Training at Triyoga in London. Sheridan completed this in 2014 at the same time taking over at Ashtanga Yoga Bath from Bev and Simon when they relocated to Cornwall.  She also qualified at Triyoga to teach yoga to children and has completed  teaching courses with Joey Miles from Ashtanga Yoga Leeds as well as with many other wonderful Ashtanga teacher around the world doing workshops.

Sheridan has practiced in Mysore with Saraswatti Jois for the last 3 years and plans an annual trip there to continue her studies as well as practicing with Sharmila Desai who she has just finished a month with at Ashtanga Yoga Morjim. She will also be returning there next January.

Closer to home she currently practices early morning in Bristol with Caroline Simpson at Ashtanga Bristol before she dashes back to Bath the teach the mid morning Mysore classes.

“I am so lucky to have and have had such amazing teachers myself I hope to pass on what I learn  through this wonderful lineage.”
