Pam & Gordon Smith
Pam and Gordon Smith are a Husband and Wife partnership, who have been teaching Yoga for over 40 years.
Pam in her early days was a Fashion Model, Dancer and Choreographer, who after searching many years for some answers to the meaning of life, found inspiration and clarity from studying Yoga; Pam meeting Gordon at one of his Yoga classes.
Between them they founded and ran Faith House Yoga and Natural Health Centre for a period of 22 years. Both Pam and Gordon are fully qualified remedial therapists and took early Yoga qualifications with the All India Board of Yoga run by Wilfred Clark.
During this period many Swamis visited Faith House including Swami Shivapremananda, a continuous visitor for many years, Dr. Rammamurti Mishra, Vivian Worthington (Author of the History of Yoga), Wilfred Clark and many others.
Gordon, a Master Mariner, left deep sea and took a job in Liverpool as Captain of a local salvage and survey vessel
in order to stay closely involved with the Centre, as well as attending lectures given by their Teacher Eugene Halliday, who was the main inspiration and guide in both of their lives.
Eugene Halliday read in many languages, was an artist, writer and philosopher. He showed great insight when lecturing on a variety of subjects including Yoga.
Pam and Gordon have taught Yoga at home and abroad and have written a book on Meditation- A Treasury of Technique, which sold internationally. They have written many articles as well as a 12 month series of articles called "Posture Possibilities" for the Yoga Today magazine.
In 1987 both helped found the Comprehensive Yoga Fellowship and played a part in writing the successful CYF Correspondence Course.
Pam is still an active Yoga teacher throughout the Wirral and North West. They also teach Yoga and Philosophy at Tan y Garth Hall, Retreat and Study Centre in the beautiful Glyn Ceiriog Valley in North Wales.
