Yoga has been a part of my life since 1998, when I was first drawn to it, to help me
cope with a stressful job and a particularly turbulent time in my life. My love of
yoga grew as I started to notice the effects of feeling calmer, more centred, better
able to cope, stronger, focussed and connected. These effects, along with some
truly inspiring teachers, made me want to learn more.
Coming from a nursing background, I have an understanding of anatomy and
physiology. This, coupled with a knowledge of classical yoga, has enabled me to
create a very individual teaching style. I work hard to continuously increase my
understanding of yoga in order to improve myself as a teacher and be able to offer
more to my students.
I am a fully qualified yoga teacher having completed the Yoga Alliance 200
teacher training course and holding the BWY Teaching Diploma. I have also
studied meditation with Swami Sarananda and have completed advanced teacher
training to teach meditation. I have completed Yoga Philosophy course with
Oxford University college of Hindu studies. I have advanced teacher training,
with teenyoga to teach young people. In addition to this I have attended a variety
of courses at the Sivananda Vedanta Centre in London covering both Asanas and
I believe that yoga and meditation should be accessible to all, and have a heartfelt
belief that yoga and meditation is for everybody. With this in mind, I work hard
to adapt Asanas (postures), to suit each individual. Rolling out a mat should or
sitting comfortably for meditation should represent a time for each person to
discover, deepen and explore their practice. This is facilitated through a unique
combination of understanding, humour and compassion, and honouring each
persons practice with knowledge and care.
