I stumbled across yoga in my early twenties. I’m generally up for anything that involves moving and energising my body and there was something about yoga that I was instinctively drawn to. I love anything outdoors, running, hiking or climbing. My enthusiasm for these hobbies can fluctuate with the seasons, but I’ve found that since I first stepped on the mat almost ten years ago, my passion for yoga has only grown stronger. It has become a core part of my life.
Whilst I was first attracted to the physical practice, I’ve learnt to appreciate the subtler disciplines of yoga and I want to share these with my students. Listening to the body and practising yoga with self-compassion can have an extremely positive impact on our mental wellbeing. If we learn to bring mind and body into the present or to let go of ego on the mat, we can find it easier to find these states of awareness off the mat too.
My classes are playful and accessible. I aim to create a space where everyone is confident exploring and developing their practice. I believe it’s healthy to challenge our comfort zones, and that this should be fun too! There will always be variations with poses, so you can develop your practise at your own pace. ‘
