What my classes are like

My classes aim to help students find mental and physical balance and stability with a focus on alignment and breathing. I also like to incorporate deeply meditative and grounding practices to calm and nourish the body.

 My journey into yoga

I discovered and fell in love with yoga as a teenager; my first teacher was an inspirational Iyengar Yoga teacher who helped me form a dedicated practice. Since then I’ve maintained a regular practice to keep the balance and energy in my life whilst being a parent, a teacher and to cope with the everyday stresses and strains of modern life that we all have.

My study and credentials

I became 200-hour qualified yoga teacher back in 2008 with Brian Cooper at Yoga Alliance and later became a Chartered Level 2 qualified teacher. I’ve also learnt Ashtanga with Tim Feldman and Yin Yoga with Liz Stephenson-Payne which has broadened my perspective on the possibilities and philosophy of yoga.

I have been very lucky to study with the founder of the Yin Meridian approach to yoga; Sarah Powers and take part in a 5 day  Yoga Alliance certified Yin immersion with Norman Blair. I will continue developing my anatomical knowledge with Julie Gudmersall and embark on a yoga intensive with the International teacher Donna Farhi. I also plan to expand my interest in Nada (sound meditation) with an introduction to sound therapy with Kath Reade.
