I have been a student of yoga since 1999. Yoga had such a strong and positive impact on my life that I wanted to pass it on through becoming a teacher myself. Completing my yoga training whilst bringing up two small children has been a challenge and a joy! My main teaching is Hatha yoga, practising the physical postures (asana) to develop strength and correct alignment, with a strong focus on breathing exercises (pranayama) emphasising awareness of the breath as well as technique. Meditation and relaxation form a large part of my classes. My intention as a teacher is to help students acquire an awareness of the body and breath and to work towards strengthening the body, calming the mind, opening the heart and cultivating balance in the face of life’s challenges and find deeper access to one’s joy and potential. I also teach Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Pregnancy.
