I found yoga around eight years ago while living abroad, as my soul was searching for answers and I was yearning for a deeper meaning to life. Since starting a regular yoga practice, my journey of self-awareness has been enriched by breathwork, mindfulness, meditation and of course yoga asana.  Yoga has become both a spiritual and physical practice which I come back to everyday and whilst my practice on the mat allows me time to connect and really feel into my body, yoga is so much more to me. It’s reflection, journalling, pranayama, a way of life off the mat too which encourages me to be the best version of myself.

I knew within me that I wanted to become a yoga teacher to help others access the benefits of yoga and find their way back to themselves. Modern day life can be so frantic and so often we can feel as if we are rushing from one thing to another without really taking it all in. Through yoga, I hope to inspire others to weave those all important moments of self-reflection and inquiry into their day to day lives, as well as honouring their bodies as they arrive on their yoga mat.

I love being out in nature and you can often find me at my allotment tending to seedlings or wondering why nothing is growing!  It’s here that I feel grounded and calm and where lots of my inspiration comes from.

I’m a vinyasa lover to the core and my classes are creative, dynamic and fun! I enjoy teaching movements connected with the breath to bring us into the present moment, alongside poses to ground, energise and empower. It’s all about having a go, letting go of the end pose and accepting where you are at right now.
