“The practice of yoga brings us face to face with the extraordinary complexity of our own being” — Sri Aurobindo
My passion for yoga evolved after years of training as a gymnast and contemporary dancer which nurtured my curiosity for movement and mind-body awareness.
My initial encounter with this healing discipline was during my first few years as a secondary school teacher in Brighton. It soon became clear that the practice of yoga, particularly the role of the breath, was instrumental in helping me deal with stressful situations in the classroom. This soon led to me retraining as a yoga teacher with The British Wheel of Yoga giving me the opportunity to pass on the life changing gifts it bestows.
We all breathe, so we can all do yoga and mastering the essential qualities of the breath combined with mindful movement both energises the body and pacifies the mind. There are so many different styles of yoga and they are always evolving to adapt to modern day life.
My classes draw on my 20 years’ experience of various styles of yoga which include Iyengar, Yin, Ashtanga, Hatha, vinyasa flow and restorative. I continue to train with senior teachers around the UK and abroad to develop more deeply my understanding of this great discipline and how to teach it to the best of my ability.
My teaching style reflects precise instruction that combines safe alignment and creative sequencing allowing you to develop a greater understanding of your own inner terrain. My classes are fun and accessible allowing students to work within their own realms through artful movement and self inquiry with everyone’s final destination being one of peace and tranquility.
“A yogi measures the span of life by the number of breaths not by the number of years.” — Swami Sivananda
