Thank you for taking the time to look at my website. Wherever you are on your yoga journey I hope that you can find something to suit your requirements.
My relationship with yoga began in 2007 as a means of finding a meaningful, authentic connection with my own body. During this time I enjoyed expert tuition in the Ashtanga Yoga lineage, finding the sense of peace and trust, within and of, my body that arose from the structured synchronicity of the renowned style.
Throughout the transition of pregnancy and parenthood I maintained a more relaxed, intuitive yoga style, providing my body and mind with the space that was required. Today, I personally practise and teach Vinyasa yoga, which is gentle and considered in structure and speed. At times, this is a slower yin style practice and at others, a fully energised vinyasa flow. I enjoy supporting our community by incorporating props, chairs and walls into my pratice and teaching, offering yoga sessions which are exploratory, supportive and nourishing for all.
I have been very fortunate to undertake trainings with some amazingly inspiring trainers and completed my 200hr Yoga Teaching Training under the tutorage of Harriet McAtee at Yoga Quota. Additionally, I have trained in Pregnancy, Post Natal and Mother and Baby Yoga with Sally Parkes Yoga, and Children and Family Yoga with Rainbow Kids. I am a life long learner. Education and research nurtures and expands my practice, and professionally I achieve this through many developmental courses including; Michael Stone’s Teaching Mindfulness Meditation training and specific courses such as Teaching Inclusive Yoga with Yoga Quota.
Professionally, my original training was as a Registered Nurse, and later as a Health Visitor, for the NHS in England. More recently I have stepped into the charity sector. My professional career has always been one of service, specifically to community and how we can all be nurtured when are socially aware and engaged.
I am proud to be a part of a yoga community where principles of inclusivity and accessibility are the foundation. I continually strive to serve in a way which offers, explores and introduces a physical yoga practice which is embedded in an individual’s preference and own sense of agency.
Building and sustaining a yoga community which is supportive and inclusive is very important to me, enabling everyone to explore their own yoga practice in a welcoming environment. If you have any queries or questions before coming along to a class please do get in touch.
I hope to welcome you to a mat very soon!
