My Classes

My approach to yoga is one of compassion and kindness, and I see it as the perfect antidote to today’s ‘always on’ society. It is about listening to your whole self and working with what is available to you, whilst using the breath as a tool to calm the mind. My aim is to work with you to bring a balance both physically and mentally. I teach yin, hatha, restorative and beginners.

My Yoga Journey 

My yoga journey started in a Hot Yoga class. After many years as a runner I felt like all my muscles had tightened up, they’d lost all their flexibility and were in need of a good stretch. I have never looked back, and as my practice developed so did my understanding of the holistic benefits of yoga. A life changing yoga retreat to the foothills of the Himalayas started a deeper appreciation of the transformative powers of yoga on an emotional, physical and spiritual level. This sowed the seed of becoming a yoga teacher so I could share those transformative powers with others.
 
I truly believe that yoga is so much more than what happens on the mat, it has the potential to be a way of life. I love the fact that it’s not competitive, it’s non judgemental and it doesn’t have an age limit on it. I am often asked how yoga has benefitted me and my life? My answer is always the same, ‘I just feel better. On every level.’

My Credentials 

I completed my 250 hour Yoga Alliance Professionals accredited Teacher Training Course with Yoga Kula Leeds in June 2019, where I now teach and mentor trainee teachers. My learning journey carried on at Sampoorna Yoga School in India where I studied and graduated from the Yin Yoga Teacher Training Programme in November 2019. I also completed my Advanced Meditation Teacher Training with Sampoorna Yoga School in 2020.
