"My education and experience combined has brought me to a place where, above all else, I believe in offering the highest quality yogic education. This is done through continually revisiting and reinvestigating research, resources, values, and touchstone delivery of teaching in the field of yoga, meditation, and mind-body medicine. I am inspired by truth, trust, connection, education, mindful living and people from all walks of life. Moreover, I take passion and pride in the ongoing development of our innovative, evidence-based yoga and mediation teacher training programme that, I am excited to announce, will be running through our new organisation: The BioMedical Institute of Yoga and Meditation, BIYOME (pronounced Bi-yo-me)." - Celia Roberts
