I have been practicing yoga since 2011. Discovering yoga in my early 20s was such a liberating experience. I was immediately attracted to the physicality of the practice which allowed me to come home to and appreciate my body. I soon discovered that yoga was not only improving my posture and alleviating physical pain, but it was also helping me to manage anxiety, stress and the inevitable ups and downs of life.
My yoga practice has helped me to develop a more loving and compassionate relationship with myself, which in turn has made me more available to support those around me. Through self-study I have gained insight into my habitual patterns and have learnt how they manifest in my body and mind. I feel closer to the essence of who I am without fear, worry or anxiety clouding my vision and driving my every decision.
In 2016 I completed 200 hours of training with Yoga London, lead by Holly Warren. Since then I have trained in Yin Yoga with Norman Blair and Vinyasa Flow with Mimi Kuo-Deemer. I am currently training to become a Yoga Therapist and have just begun a 550+ hour training programme with Yoga Campus. I will complete this training in 2020 and receive a diploma in Yoga Therapy, accredited by the British Council of Yoga Therapy (BCYT). Today my practice is based on what my mind and body need on that particular day and will always include some form of movement, breathing and meditation practice.
I believe yoga is for everybody. I encourage all my students to work mindfully on the mat, and my aim is to lead you towards a deeper listening and understanding of yourself. There is no one size fits all and I am aware that we are all perfectly unique and beautifully individual, and so my teachings reflect that. I always offer choice and give you the independence to explore your body intuitively, whilst guiding you through with love and kindness. If I can help someone to feel calm, relaxed and more in tune with the inner workings of their mind and body, then I feel a large part of my work is done. My teachings include mindful vinyasa, restorative and yin postures, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation.
