I have been a student of yoga for nearly two decades but only began the journey of teaching in 2012. Since then I have done numerous workshops and a few more trainings and have been lucky enough to have had brilliant teachers and curious students along the way.

I am fascinated by Yoga and its potential. the inter connectedness of our body/mind systems, and how movement, breath and stillness, while so simple, can profoundly alter us.  Through moving and playing with shapes we can evolve our strength and flexibility both mentally and physically.

Philosophy – spreading the love

Yoga offers practical tools for living. Potentially enhancing the way we move, think, breathe and live. is tool for finding your twisting, folding, bending self which hopefully brings a little lightness of being. A space for self- discovery and laughter.

Yoga is what we do in our daily lives, on and off the mat.  the magic happens, the yoga works, when balancing is a challenge, when strength and flexibility are not picture perfect, where the  journey is so much more than the destination.

“Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light.” ― Yogi Bhajan.

Spreading the love

Breath focused classes based on intelligent sequencing and functional movements.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative is a truly quiet yoga, much like meditation on bolsters. It allows the body to open gently.

Yoga for Everybody

Yoga should be accessible to all, regardless of size, ability, agility or age.

Trauma focused yoga

Trauma yoga seeks to balance in the nervous system through incorporating both stimulating and soothing postures.

Yin Yoga

I love Yin yoga. In a world of constant stimulus, Yin Yoga offers a space of quietude, a turning within.

Breath work

Working with breath offers us tools for self-regulation, self-exploration and a means to connect to present moment.
