In the UK, (where I have trained) osteopaths are trained to degree level, taking a minimum of four years, including over 1000 hours of contact time with patients at undergraduate level.
This means that I hold a Master’s degree in Sciences (M.Sc) from the University of Greenwich as well as a Diploma of Osteopathy (D.O) from the European School of Osteopathy.
I am also a member of the Svenska Osteopatförbundet which regulates the profession in Sweden.
I have done most of my yoga training in total immersion in India. This has allowed me to study and experience both the physical and philosophical facets of the practice. I have also completed several formal Yoga Alliance approved teacher training.
