I've been teaching yoga since 2007. I am so grateful to do this work. My practice and teaching continues to evolve. Having studied with many teachers both internationally and locally I continue to learn and teach what I learn. Yoga, for me, has become a practice to stay present, it has taught me compassion and honesty and encourages me to tread lightly on this earth. My teaching style suits all levels. I offer a welcoming space for you to move your body safely, to be present, mindful and to use the practice as an opportunity to notice whatever you notice. It really is that simple.
I consider my practice to be a modern approach to yoga. I've taken out some of the traditional forms and techniques that, I believe, do not suit our modern lifestyles. If you are interested in moving well, intelligently and finding ways to improve your mobility and strength while keeping your yoga practice interesting and sustainable then come and try a class. Breath work, meditation and relaxation always included.
I am eternally grateful to the teachers who have influenced my practice and teaching the most: Tara Fraser at Yoga Junction, London; Pete Blackaby in Brighton, Donna Farhi (New Zealand) and Sarah Powers (Yin & Insight Yoga). I was introduced to meditation by Clive Holmes at Samye Ling Buddhist Monastery many years ago. Currently I'm learning about more about natural movement and biomechanics from movement educators Katy Bowman (Nutritious Movement) and Brea Johnson (Heart & Bones Yoga) who have given me so much new and interesting material to work with and taught me it's ok to be a modern Yogi!
I am forever a student on this path.
