Yoga has held a special place in my heart since my first class when I was 13 years old. Even then I remember feeling like I had found something important and that yoga would be a part of my life in some way.
I have always been very interested in the therapeutic power of physical movement as well as in Eastern philosophy, meditation and mindfulness. I did a Masters Degree in Psychology where I specialised in learning about the therapeutic benefits of mindfulness meditation, particularly in anxiety disorders and depression. For me, yoga blends these interests beautifully into an art, a philosophy and a science that is both simple at its core as well as extremely profound. It has so much to offer in this fast-paced modern world of stress and addiction to productivity. It brings us home to the truth of who we are and it helps us to find an inner sense of balance and peace.
Personally, yoga has changed my life. It has been an important part of my own healing journey and I am immensely grateful for that. Yoga has helped to open doors that I didn’t know existed and to close one’s who’s view no longer served me. It is so much more than an exercise – a way to increase in flexibility, strength and tone – it certainly has those benefits (and many more!) but the real beauty of yoga is it’s transformative power; a power it has through the focus on both the health of the mind and the health of the body. One cannot truly possess one without the other.
My Yoga Style
I completed my foundation with the British Wheel of Yoga and my 200hr Teacher Training with Heather Elton.
My classes are down to earth and accessible. I want yoga to be fun and exploratory as well as profound. I integrate the practice of mindful awareness, correct alignment, hatha and vinyasa yoga. My passion is to educate and empower others to use their practice on the yoga mat as a catalyse for positive growth and development in every aspect of their daily lives. Yoga on and off the mat.
My approach is grounded and challenging as well as restorative and relaxing. I encourage others to really pay attention to what is going on inside themselves, to become a student of the self and to truly inhabit their body and soul.
Mostly, I want yoga to be your yoga. To be relevant to your life. To help you tread more lightly on the earth. To see more clearly. To feel more deeply. To live more fully.
I look forward to meeting you on the mat soon!
