My teaching combines yoga styles: synchronizing breath and movement in the dynamic style of Vinyasa Flow, working closely with static posture alignment in Hatha and melting into the meditative, less dynamic postures of Yin. This is about more than working your body – everything we practice physically in yoga is intimately informed by an ancient, rich and fascinating philosophy going back thousands of years and yet more relevant today than ever. I weave aspects of this philosophy into the teaching of breathing techniques, physical postures, relaxation and meditation. Through my classes, my aim is for you to feel wonderfully stretched, spacious and strengthened, your breathing smooth and regular and with a deep sense of calm and alignment with what matters in life.
All my classes are for mixed ability and I teach 3 different types of classes – Flow/Hatha, Yin/Restorative and Gentle Yoga. Please get in touch if you’d like to chat about which class you think may be the best for you.
I first encountered yoga when I was a stressed 15 year old and my grandmother showed me a sequence of asanas (physical postures) to help focus and calm my mind. I continued to practise on an off, and in the last 10 years began to take it more seriously, establishing a regular practice. In 2014 I took this further by completing a British Wheel Foundation Course in preparation for teacher training on the British Wheel Teaching Diploma. I am now qualified as a Yoga Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga (accounting for 500 hours of training). Teaching students of all ages and levels of experience has transformed my own relationship to yoga and confirmed this is what I most love doing!
