ABOUT ME

Trood Morrison, Berwick & Borders Yoga

Hello, and thanks for dropping by!

 

My name is Trood and I've been practising yoga for the past 27 years. In 2014, I gained my 500-hour teaching qualification. If that means nothing to you (!), today most teachers qualify with a 200-hour certificate. For me, as a biomechanics geek, that's simply not enough to keep students safe in a busy studio environment. 

 

So, I wanted a qualification that not only had a strong focus on anatomy and physiology, but also had an indepth focus on the history and philosophy of the discipline.  

Because yoga is not exercise. It's an entire system to bring mind, body and spirit together. 

As I spent a few years writing sitcoms for the BBC it’s not a huge surprise that I work with a sense of fun, acceptance and irreverence. There's a lot of laughter. I’m forever pondering whether I should take things more seriously but remind myself that the yoga industry is saturated with over-earnest folk banging on about their blocked third eye, usually in a string bikini.

 

I want yoga to be accessible to you ~ someone who’s interested in their own innate spirituality (rather than trying one on for size), someone whose body grumbles when asked to run for a bus, someone who likes baggy t-shirts and joggers, and binge-watches First Dates Hotel (best programme ever).

Come and join me. No judgement, no criticism. Just turn up and see what happens. I don’t care if you can’t touch your toes or can flip up into handstands. None of it matters.

 

What matters is you’ve started the search for something more.

I'm co-founder of Bab'yama Wellness Hub in Berwick-upon-Tweed, a space that provides yoga, meditation and healing to the local community.

I'm a former Trustee of Yoga Scotland, the Governing Body for Yoga for Scotland, and editor of Yoga Scotland Magazine.

This little guy is Mr Kip, a border/beardy cross rescue and a total sweetheart. You'll see him in the B&BY videos, usually scratching or licking himself inappropriately ...

look at that face!
