I’ve been practicing Yoga for almost 30 years and would like to give special thanks and gratitude to my teachers: Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Sarah Lo, Simon Low and Swami Pragyamurti, whose wisdom, knowledge and clarity have been an inspiration.
I’ve started practicing yoga 25 years ago and started teaching yoga in London in 2004, after completing my British Wheel of Yoga teacher training.
I’ve completed further teacher training in Yin Yoga, Well Women Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs, Yoga Nidra and Pregnancy Yoga.
My teachings are rooted in traditional Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Tantra and Yoga Philosophy as well as Tibetan Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation and Vipassana Meditation. I also draw on the creative flowing forms of Vinyasa-Flow Yoga and the Insight/ Yin Yoga practices of Sarah Powers.
I have become passionate about studying and teaching breath work, inspired by the teachings of Donna Farhi and Richard Freeman on Breathing and Pranayama. In my classes, I guide students to discover and reset deeply held distorted breath patterns, a process in which physical and emotional patterns can be unlocked and released. These empowering Breathing practices help students to rediscover their essential breath, fundamental in deepening and inspiring their yoga, pranayama and meditation practices.
I’ve recently completed the Well Women/Womb Yoga Therapy Training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and currently teach this on a 1:1 basis. This approach to yoga therapy for women’s well-being is founded upon the understanding that conscious respectful awareness of the menstrual cycle, and of cycles in women’s lives are crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment. Therapeutic applications range from menstruation, PMT, fertility, perimenopause, menopause and beyond.
