I have been practising yoga for over 18 years. I began attending weekly classes as a student at university, looking for a way to relax my body and mind, and to deal with the stress of studying and of finding my feet in a new version of the world of which I found myself suddenly a part. That little pocket of time and space became sacred, and as I've grown older, realising that the world just keeps on changing and the ground beneath me shifting, taking time to connect to my physical body and enquire into the whirrings of my mind through my yoga practice has become my saving grace.

In 2013 I trained as a Satyananda yoga instructor at Satyanandashram Hellas in Greece, and in 2017 I completed a two-year British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher training course at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. I continue to study and explore all aspects of yoga. My approach has a particular affinity with the work of Vanda Scaravelli and her students, including Sandra Sabatini.

I remain inspired by my wonderful teacher, Frankie Duggan (Dayamitra).
