Gail Jefferson

Meet our Anatomy Teacher - Gail Jefferson

Gail currently works as Senior Lecturer at University of Cumbria, teaching Under and Post graduate radiographers, primarily covering Medical Image Interpretation and Advanced Practice. She also teaches anatomy to Medical students at Lancaster University Medical School and provides in-house teaching at the Cumberland Infirmary for medics. She is also employed as a Reporting Radiographer for North Cumbria Hospitals Trust and teaches CPD for Health Practitioners via two companies.

She completed her PGD in Medical Image Interpretation and has been x-ray reporting for 19 years and is currently completing her dissertation for her MSc.

As if that wasn’t enough she also presents at conferences nationally including recent events at the British Institute of Radiology at Manchester University relating to Forensic Imaging and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London presenting a Thoracic Trauma lecture.

She became involved with Forensic Radiography early in her career due to the Lockerbie Air Crash and has remained actively interested and involved since then. She is a Founder member of the Northern Forensic Group which was then the Association of Forensic Radiographers and is now an International concern. She remains the NW Forensic Radiography Coordinator for UKFRRT.

She surprisingly squeezes in some social life revolving around her family and friends and often involving good food, wine and laughter! She enjoys travel whether it be a night away in Edinburgh, a long weekend in Lisbon or an exotic beach.

To attempt a ‘beach body’ she enjoys fitness, involving a variety of classes including circuits, bodypump etc . However she only recently discovered the pleasure of Yoga and particularly The Yoga Studio team.

We are delighted that she has taken time out of her busy schedule to deliver anatomy training for this Teacher Training Course.

Meet our Teacher - Janet Richards

Janet didn’t discover yoga until she was 46 years of age. She was suffering from stress and poor health and turned to yoga as an act of desperation. Slowly she regained her health and control of her life with the help of a regular yoga practice and in 2013 went to India to study with Sonja Appel at Sushumna Yoga. She found this a profound and life changing experience. She has continued her yoga journey training with Bernie Clark, Lucy Crawford Scott, Karen Kirkness Breneman and Josh Summers.

She is the owner of the successful The Yoga Studio, a small boutique yoga studio and she is delighted to be hosting this event in the historic City of Carlisle in Cumbria.
