I went to my first yoga class in my mid teens and I kept going back because it felt good. It felt good to move, it felt good to spend time on my Self, to step out of my narrative into the space that yoga offers, it felt REALLY good laying down in relaxation at the end of class. Since those early days in my local community hall yoga has consistently provided me with a nourishing space to bring me back into balance from whatever pressures life puts on my body and mind. I am now blessed to be able to share this with others.
I completed my 18 month teacher training with Yogacampus, London, choosing them for their rigorous curriculum and their approach of simultaneously looking to the traditions of yoga whilst refining the practice for the future. I have completed further training with renowned yoga teacher and physical therapist Julie Gudmestad and Buddhist teacher and Psychotherapist Michael Stone. I look forward to further training in the Spring with leading Restorative teacher Judith Hanson Lassiter.
I believe the practice of yoga has the unique ability to encourage greater respect towards our constantly evolving bodies, whilst improving strength and flexibility, and focusing the body and the mind. It has the power to tap into the nervous system allowing the body to heal itself at a deeper level. By cultivating awareness of the breath and body we train our minds bringing us a clearer perspective from which to experience the adventures of day to day life.
I encourage students to engage with yoga in a way that is right for them, helping them towards a nourishing, sustainable, and lifelong practice.
