I first came to yoga as a student, looking for ways of coping with exam stress, and quickly realised that I had found much more! I was lucky to have a teacher who inspired me with her joyous and open approach to the vast subject that is yoga. After class I often found that I not only felt I had stretched and moved my body in ways I wasn't used to, but that I also felt more in touch with myself at a deeper level, and more at peace with the world around me. I have continued to discover in yoga a deeply nourishing and resourcing practice, which has helped me through many changes in my life - not least becoming a mother, and the death of my own mother. To get on my mat each day is not always easy, but it consistently rewards me with a sense of space and connection with myself, and the possibility of taking this out into my daily life.
I trained to be a teacher in 1999, and have been teaching weekly classes ever since. I have teaching diplomas from the British Wheel of Yoga, Bihar School of Yoga, and from Birthlight, which specialises in the teaching of yoga to pregnant and postnatal women. I have also trained to teach yoga to people living with cancer.
I teach classical hatha yoga in Stroud and Bristol. These are integral and holistic classes, which include a balance of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), and meditation or relaxation (yoga nidra).
I have a beautiful yoga studio in Stroud, and from here I also offer workshops and longer sessions at weekends, dedicated meditation classes, and weekly classes for pregnancy and for mums and babies. One-to-ones, workplace sessions and birth preparation classes are available on request.
Specialist training: Birthlight, Perinatal Diploma; BWY Postnatal Yoga; Early Years Yoga; Yoga for People living with Cancer (BWY). Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs.
I have also co-trained on teacher training courses, and am an assessor of new yoga teachers.
