People come to Yoga for many different reasons. For me it was through the deterioration of my own health and vitality that the practice was recommended by a close friend back in 2007. Since this time I have become a passionate practitioner, encompassing the philosophy of Yoga within all areas of my life.
Through deep learning and personal practice I have developed and integrated this beautiful ancient tradition of bodywork, breath and mindfulness into my own routine and this continues to support a rich, fulfilling and healthy lifestyle.
My classes offer a safe, friendly and warm environment to experience the beauty of Yoga. They are built to empower people to find their own inner wisdom and reconnect to their intuitive movement and energy. Whether your intention is to increase your flexibility, relieve stress, or improve your strength, Yoga offers something for everyone.
I have had the opportunity to study with some wonderful teachers through my Foundation Training with The British Wheel and then further studies with a 12 month Yoga Alliance teacher training programme through YogaLondon and Holly Warren. I have completed an in-depth Teacher/Facilitator Training for Yoga Nidra with Uma Dimsmmore-Tuli through Yoga Campus in London and my training with Ralf Marzen at the Mudita School of Thai Massage to become a fully qualified Thai Yoga Masseur.
I draw from my Ashtanga Vinyasa Training and love of Hatha and Yin Yoga to form a deep and gentle practice, which together with my own daily practice is brought to each student to offer a sound base for a quality and safe learning experience. I have a light hearted gentle approach to teaching and value everyone’s individuality. I believe by enabling people to become sensitive to the sounds and sensations of their own bodies and minds, allows them to have a greater experience of life on and off of the Yoga mat.
