I was first drawn to yoga as a teenager and fell in love with the feeling of physical and mental wellbeing after practice. Yoga continued to sustain me during university and really helped combat the long, stressful hours working in TV production at the BBC for 9 years. It was after having my second child and in a bid to find more life-work balance, that my attention began to turn towards teaching it. I initially trained in children’s yoga, and eventually teen and adult yoga. Whilst I continue to specialise in Yoga and Mindfulness within Education, I also enjoy teaching adults and sharing the transformational benefits of yoga and mindfulness within the wider community.
I teach a gentle flowing, classical style of Hatha/Vinyasa Flow yoga, emphasising mindfulness of breath and movement (the class flows between slow and dynamic with a meditative quality). I design the practice to suit the needs of the students, offering modifications and progressions for mixed abilities, so that all feel welcome. The practice helps strengthen body and mind, release physical and mental tension, as well as bringing about deep relaxation.
My aim, is to help my students experience for themselves the joy of easeful and playful movement, and the peace that grows with stillness.
I’ve always enjoyed learning, and as a graduate of Yogacampus, I continue to expand my knowledge and deepen my practice by regularly attending workshops and specialist trainings.
See you on the mat! Namaste.
