I am a 500 hour qualified yoga teacher with a passion for making the ancient science of yoga accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience.
I have been practicing yoga for 27 years and spent 13 years teaching beginner, intermediate and private classes, preconception and pregnancy yoga, workshops, workplace yoga, meditation, mantra, yoga for children, yoga for people experiencing mental health issues, at festivals and for students over 70. I am also a Certified HypnoBirthing Educator, with the original Marie Mongan method.
In classes we explore yoga practices with humour, playfulness and compassion, to learn more about ourselves, the way and why we do things, if our patterns are serving us and other ways we may approach situations. Then the real magic occurs when we take lessons learnt on the mat into our daily lives.
Yoga is an ancient science that originated in India thousands of years ago. Yoga provides a pathway for deep self discovery and transformation from the inside out. The word yoga means union, of the body, breath and spirit which is achieved through asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, deep relaxation, mantra (Sanskirt chanting) and mudra (hand gestures or poses that invoke a specific attitude). Yoga practices provide practical tools for everyday life so that we can be the best version of ourselves on and off the mat.
