I was first drawn to yoga for the physical challenge, then when I lost my dad in 2013 it was the therapeutic effects on the mind that kept me coming back for more. Whilst training with Hot Power Yoga in 2016 I realised that yoga was helping me to search for freedom. Freedom from rigidity and patterns of holding in my body, freedom from my own mind and limiting self-beliefs, and freedom within areas of my life that had become stuck. I began to develop a more positive outlook on life and this exploration of freedom remains.
I love to play and explore within my own practice, and have now completed over 500 hours of training including: Yin Yoga with Sarah Lo and Norman Blair, Forrest Yoga with Jambo Truong, Rocket Yoga with Amber Gean, Mandala Vinyasa & Shamanism with The Yoga People, Mindfulness Meditation with Michael Stone, Embodied Anatomy with Mollie McClelland Morris, Principles of Embodied Flow with Tara Judelle, and Reiki energy healing with Brighitta Moser-Clark. I am currently doing a 6 month mentorship programme - Liberate and Elevate - with Naomi Absalom.
Drawing influence from these different disciplines, my classes are always creative and infused with flavour! I teach strong, flowing sequences and create a nurturing space for students to challenge themselves as much or as little as they wish. My calm teaching style and gentle, playful nature encourage students to explore different ways of moving whilst finding their own balance between yang and yin. I like to include time for free movement within my classes whilst sharing the other aspects of yoga that have helped me on my own journey so far.
