A Little Bit About Me

  

  

I first discovered yoga in the late 90’s. At the time I was working in London, juggling a demanding career. Finding Yoga gave me an outlet to balance my body and mind.
Over the years I have practiced many forms of Hatha yoga such as: Power Yoga, Sivananda yoga, Jivamukti Yoga & Yin Yoga.  
After many years I discovered a love of Ashtanga Yoga  a physically demanding form of yoga that synchronises breath, in a series of progressive postures. Today I practise Advanced A - Third Series of Ashtanga Yoga.  

I initially trained as a general Hatha Yoga teacher (Level 3 diploma), however have since taken and continue to expand my training (200hr Yoga Alliance) in Ashtanga Yoga under my beloved Senior Ashtanga teacher, Sandra Howling. 

In order to balance a physical yoga practice I completed my teacher training in Restorative Yoga (Yoga Alliance) - a deeply healing style of yoga that works on the parasympathetic nervous system, using props to induce relaxation. 

I constantly continue to expand my practice and knowledge of yoga, undertaking yoga immersions, teacher trainings and workshops with well-respected practitioners, such as Manju Jois, Kino Macgregor, David Swenson & Phillipa Asher to name a few.  

I absolutely love teaching yoga. Meeting new people and seeing their practice develop physically and spiritually is very gratifying and I feel honoured to be able to teach.

What is Yoga

The word “Yoga” translates as the union, or yoking of the body to the mind. The practice of yoga is thousands of years old. Originating in India it rapidly spread to the west in the late 19th century. Yoga is more than just phyiscal postures, it combines breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation. It is an excellent way to improve all round health, enhancing flexibility, fitness, aiding relaxation and mental health.  

Yoga is 99% practice & 1% theory
