Shimmy is a London based yoga teacher passionate about teaching Beginners, Pregnancy, Restorative and Yin Yoga.
She experienced her first yoga class in 2003. From that point in time, she knew that sharing the practice of yoga was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life, and has never looked back since.
Shimmy's yoga journey brought her to complete a BWY Foundation course with Tara Fraser at Yoga Junction, and thanks to an auspicious alignment of stars and developments in life, followed a Astanga Vinyasa Teacher Training (with Julie Martin & Melanie Cooper, RTY 500) at Brahmani Yoga, India in 2009.
Shimmy is also a qualified Pre & Postnatal (RYT100) and Restorative Yoga teacher (Jodi Boone, Brahmani Yoga), and recently completed a 100 Hour Anusara Yoga Immersion with Bridget Woods Kramer in London.
Her approach to teaching is similar to her approach in life: both grounded and light, dedicated, mindful and aware, whilst understanding personal limitations that are inherent to each and every individual.
Shimmy’s teaching is gentle and kind, encouraging and nurturing. With a smile and deep love for teaching, she seeks to instil a sense of lightness and ease to students, enabling them to sense how their body, mind and spirit connect.
Having practiced with a number of highly experienced teachers in both the Iyengar and Ashtanga traditions, Shimmy loves to create sequences to suit the energy and level of the class, whilst also challenging and inspiring students to honour their abilities and presence on and off the mat.
