I am yoga and meditation teacher, who trained with the world renowned Katy Appleton of appleyoga. My 240 hour teacher training and 96 hour pregnancy, postnatal and baby yoga training are all accredited with Yoga Alliance UK.
I have been practising yoga for 20 years. I deepened my practice around 14 years ago with the aim of helping a chronic back injury. I found that yoga cured this and started to increase my flexibility, stamina and fitness. I worked for 16 years as a Chartered Accountant and Tax Adviser working long hours in often stressful environments and deadlines. Yoga also had the unexpected benefit of dramatically reducing the anxiety levels that I was experiencing in my working life. I fell in love with the practice and could not wait to go to class each week!
After starting my family I decided to turn my passion for the practice and started study with The British Wheel of Yoga completing their 80 hour Foundation Course. The learnings from this course along with my long term practice with Katy Appleton cemented my decision to follow a career in teaching yoga.
I feel strongly about the benefits of yoga for everyone and every body and aim to provide a friendly, welcoming environment where you will feel safe and comfortable. My teaching style is fun, lighthearted and accessible but at the same time delivering the key messages of a yoga practice. My classes allow you to soothe, relax, rejuvenate, energise and calm the mind body, assisting you in rebalancing should you have a stressful non-stop lifestyle.
I have a particular interest and speciality in teaching pregnancy and post-natal yoga. Having given birth and now being a mother to two small people, I am perfectly placed to support mamas-to-be and new mamas during this precious time. I vividly remember all the feelings, aches, pains, anticipation, joy and wonder of pregnancy and early motherhood! Hence why I absolutely love teaching these classes, guiding beautiful expectant and new mamas through this truly powerful yoga practice, which can have transformational effects to body, mind and emotions.
