My Classes

I combine a fusion of east meets west in sessions allowing deeper connection to the roots of the practices whilst ensuring accessibility. I encourage students to embrace a spirit of acceptance for what ‘is’ in the present moment, let go of ego and external comparisons and simply ‘be’. I support students to deepen their practice and support their life by nurturing body, mind and spirit through the practice of yoga and a deep dedication to using the practice as a tool to self -inquiry.

My hope is that students step off the mat feeling inspired, nourished, balanced and able to continue with their day with a sense of peace. I believe yoga is the most effective tonic for a modern life and am dedicated to using it to support deep change in individuals and communities. In these times we need to reconnect to each other and nature more than ever and yoga can help us to do that – it’s so much more than just taking a class!

My classes range from dynamic to soothing. Expect to be guided into a meditative asana practice with time for reflection, breathing, mudra and mantra. I teach yoga in a holistic way with a deep connection and understanding of the Eastern approach to well-being.

My Yoga Journey

I started my journey into well-being and yoga when I lived in Japan and deepened my practice by living in India. I set up Kula to grow a like-minded yoga community in Leeds. Yoga is such a big part of my life and has given me so much. Kula is my way of sharing the amazing transformative benefits of practicing yoga. I want create a ripple effect in people’s lives – helping others to live in a more positive way and influence those around them. I have been teaching yoga for over 10 years.

My Credentials

I have studied with world-renowned teachers in both India and the west including BKS Iyengar and his associates in Pune, Bharat Shetty and the Kumar brothers Vijay and Vinay in Mysore, India. My further training in the UK and India has been vast and varied with senior teachers including David Swenson, Shiva Rea, Julie Gudmestad and Jambo Dragon. I have been studying yoga for almost 20 years.

I continue to expand my yoga knowledge with regular further yoga study and opportunities for self-inquiry and development through vipassana meditation, jung shim, regular trips to India and a passion for plant medicine and the transformational power of ceremony.
