My first experience with yoga was in 1999 at my local community centre in London, England. I dabbled for a while, on and off for 6 years. When I moved back to Scotland I thought Yoga might be the way out of a job I hated. It worked! I took a 2 year part time teacher training programme and leapt into the world of self employment. I've not looked back. I've been teaching yoga since 2007 and studied with many teachers both internationally and locally. My practice and teaching continues to evolve. 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 interests lie in movement and anatomy.
I offer a welcoming space for you to move safely, with integrity. I encourage you to slow down and enjoy the pauses. There's no rush. Enjoy the journey.
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). 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 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. Thank you.
I am forever a student on this path.
