I am a yoga teacher with 16 years of teaching experience. I run classes and workshops as well as individual sessions, yoga therapy, and yoga holidays in Europe.
I am also a thai yoga massage therapist.
I have been one of the organisers of the Brighton Yoga festival since its beginnings in 2013. In 2016 we became a registered charity with the aim of bringing the benefits of yoga to everyone in the city (and beyond). I became and still am on of the charity’s trustees.
In 2017 we changed our name to the Brtighton Yoga Foundation. As we are focussing more on community outreach work, involving yoga, alongside our annual festival.
When I am not teaching yoga or massaging I spend my time with my two teenage boys, my Partner and my friends.
In terms of my yoga
I have been teaching yoga since 2002. I am a firm believer that yoga should be for everyone, regardless of age, physical fitness or background. Yoga is a lot more than the physical practice that most people are familiar with, and aspects of a yoga practice can be experienced in other activities. When we practice postures in yoga, the focus and the direction of the mind is really the most important part of the practice. It allows us to create a different kind of concentration and to be really involved with what we are focusing on. Keeping our bodies healthy and mobile is important, but to work with yoga, means to also include other aspects such as breathing exercises, visualisation, mindfulness and meditation.
I hope to provide tools that will not only be useful in a class situation, but also in day to day life.
I also teach yoga foundation courses and teacher training
