I am originally from the Lake District in England. Having always had an interest in nature, health, and movement, especially yoga and rock climbing. I completed a degree in Outdoor Studies and moved to New Zealand. Now living in Rotorua you usually find me mountain biking in the Whakarewarewa Forest, pottering in the garden, or practicing and teaching alignment based Yoga.
I have been a student of Yoga for over ten years, and sharing my knowledge for four. I completed a 200hr Yoga teacher training with Amy Ippoliti of Yogaglo and 90 Monkeys in Boulder, Colorado. This included a module of Sanskrit Studies with Manorama. To be noted is significant study with Gabriela Maass of Continuum Yoga (UK). During travels through India I also completed two (month long) immersions with senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Bramacharya Rudra Dev of Rishikesh. Constantly learning. I have just completed a 50hr Yin Yoga teacher training.
