“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.
“When the abandonment to gravity comes into action, resistance ceases, fear vanishes, order is regained, nature starts again to function in its natural rhythm and the body is able to blossom fully, allowing the river of life to flow freely through all its parts” Vanda Scaravelli
