I first regularly practiced yoga in 2015 after moving to Dubai and discovering ‘Friends of Yoga’, an Ashtanga yoga group who practiced daily in my local park. Under the guidance of my brilliant teachers Hari and Babu, and as my dedication to yoga grew, I travelled to the south of India to further explore my interests. It was at this point that I decided to be a yoga teacher. Since then, I have gained my 200 Hours Vinyasa Flow qualification and have been privileged enough to study and train with teachers such as Michelle Almond, Taylor Harkness and Kirsty Gallaghers. This summer I have completed a 85 Hour Pregnancy Yoga training with Sally Parkes, enabling me to facilitate Pregnancy, Pre-natal and Mother and Baby Yoga classes.
Prior to teaching yoga, I was a Primary School teacher for 7 years, working in South Korea, Thailand and Dubai as well as the UK. Children's yoga provides a fun and energetic way of finding calm and well-being for young people, which I love to introduce through a variety of stories, movements and ideas.
For me, yoga is being happy, healthy and feeling alive. It is breathing… being grateful for an amazing body that is strong and able to do so many wonderful things. My classes focus on the most common poses and their alignment, on finding stability through concentration on how to better focus your energy and most importantly, tune into the breath.
