I first "discovered" yoga in 2002 in my early 30's, after having spent my 20's working in IT and working part-time in the fitness industry. Initially I was drawn to the stretching and strength component of yoga, but I soon noticed I was generally calmer and better able to cope with stressful situations. I felt more balanced, both physically and mentally. I now find I am not only fitter, stronger and more flexible, but also healthier than I've ever been.
I teach a variety of different styles from the more dynamic vinyasa to the slow flowing Calligraphy Yoga. My keen interest in bio-mechanics shines through in my teaching style which is dynamic and playful, with a focus on alignment, encouraging students to work within their own capabilities while safely challenging themselves, be it physically or mentally.
Realising that no two people are alike, I undertook further study in the field of Yoga Therapy with Dr Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga which I completed in 2014. This has enabled me to assist students with wide ranging health conditions such as muscular skeletal injuries, respiratory disorders, MS, Parkinson's disease, cancer, depression, anxiety and mental disabilities.
In addition to my regular group classes and private yoga therapy sessions, I am also a trainer for Santosha Yoga's teacher training programme in Bali.
