Shimmy has relocated to Cape Town after 10 successful years of teaching in one of London most popular yoga studios. 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.

Shimmy is a highly skilled and experienced yoga teacher with over 10 years teaching practice. Her expertise ensures each class caters for those that are new to yoga as well as advanced/experienced practitioners wanting to refine their existing practice and set deeper foundations for more advanced asana.

Her love for teaching is conveyed through her patient, nurturing and often humorous teaching style, which is not be confused with easy. She encourages building strength to support a mindful approach to yoga which allows practitioners to create and experience their own unique dialogue between mind and body.

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.
