I have been practicing Yoga since 2004 and have been teaching Yoga full time since 2016.  I completed a two year Yoga Teachers Training course in 2017 through the School of Yoga, Friends of Yoga International. I currently teach Hatha Yoga publicly and privately, online and in person.

 

I first discovered Yoga on a year out in the stunning Canadian Rocky mountains in my early twenties.  The experience stuck with me and when I returned home to England I began attending both Hatha and Ashtanga classes so regularly, that before I knew it, not only was my practice improving, but also my life.  As I practised continuously, my attitude towards myself gained a warrior spirit and I began going for things I wouldn't have before, like changing my career; taking up new interests; and committing to my health and well being.  Yoga gives me energy, virtue, resilience and enables me to know me; a considered life.

I continually grow and develop in my own practice and have been taught by some fantastic teachers along the way.  What I love about teaching Yoga is that I learn every day something new through my students.  There is a great sense of unspoken understanding within a class that everyone comes to their mat with their own lives outside of it.  But the time spent in the Yoga practice, during that dedicated time to yourself, connects you to a sense of what everyone else is feeling: invigorated, calm and blissed out! 

My style of teaching is down to earth and personable.  I provide a safe environment and see Yoga as both physical and emotional therapy. I get to know all my students and their individual needs. I have an in-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology as I am also an active trained and qualified level 3 Personal Trainer.  I have a keen interest in the ever-evolving Yoga practice, always researching and exploring the effects of Yoga.  I provide guidance and direction as well as golden moments of silence giving you space to be, listen to your body and breathing.
