My first experience with yoga was in 1999 at a local community centre in London. I practiced on and off for 6 years, it helped me with the stresses and strains of an desk based office job. It was not until I moved back to Scotland some years later that I took a 2 year part time teacher training programme and leapt into the world of self employment. I've been teaching yoga full time since 2007 and studied with many teachers both internationally and locally. My practice and teaching continues to evolve. Yoga has been a practice to help me stay present, it has taught me to tread lightly on this earth. My interests lie in functional movement and anatomy.
My intention is always to offer you a welcoming safe space to move and breathe. I encourage you to slow down, linger in the pauses and notice every part of your experience.

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 and Donna Farhi (New Zealand). I was introduced to meditation by Clive Holmes at Samye Ling Buddhist Monastery many years ago. Currently I'm learning more about more natural movement and biomechanics from movement educator Katy Bowman (Nutritious Movement) and the sustainable, modern yoga approach with Brea Johnson (Heart & Bones Yoga) they have given me so much new and interesting material to work with.
I am forever a student on this path.
