After 14 years of teaching in one of London's most popular yoga studios, Shimmy relocated to Cape Town and now offers online classes to students worldwide, as well as one-to-ones (online and in person).

In addition to her yoga practice, Shimmy has discovered a passion for somatic movement, particularly Feldenkrais, which has deeply influenced her personal yoga practice and teaching style. In her classes, Shimmy focuses on creating a safe and supportive environment for all students, regardless of their experience or ability level, allowing practitioners to be curious and exploratory in their own practice.

Trained in various disciplines of yoga, including Astanga and Iyengar Yoga, her classes often incorporate elements from different styles, providing a well-rounded and dynamic practice. She is committed to making yoga and somatic movement accessible to everyone and has worked with a diverse range of students, from beginners to advanced practitioners.

Shimmy offers private sessions and workshops in addition to bespoke group classes for those who want to deepen their practice. She continues to explore and learn from other teachers, traditions and functional movement disciplines.
