I have been practising yoga for almost 25 years and graduated as a yoga teacher from the Bushey School of Yoga (200 hours) I discovered early on how deeply supportive and enriching yoga could be and continues to be in my everyday life, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
I share a gentle, holistic and deeply therapeutic Hatha yoga practice, with physical postures alongside Meditation and Relaxation. I create a calm and happy space in which students are encouraged to unwind, stretch out and nourish themselves - acknowledging and reconnecting with who they are, honestly and lovingly. Students learn to gradually develop flexibility and confidence, strength and ease of movement; steadiness and stillness within mind, body and soul. Yoga is a process of self-enquiry, for many a choice to bravely explore thoughts and feelings (especially the more difficult ones such as pain, confusion, sadness & vulnerability) greater awareness of breath and contemplation of ancient philosophy. My classes are an opportunity to consciously slow down and come in to the present moment - potential for lightness, gratitude, relief, joy and peace within. I'm proud to describe myself very much a student too, my love of learning & intention to heal & expand within my mind & heart space.
Much of what I share & offer is inspired by the spiritual teachings of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras & also Louise Hay, Eckhart Tolle, Ram Dass, Eddie Stern, Dr Gabor Maté & Melody Beattie. Above all, they continue to remind me to enquire, feel & teach from my heart, the most authentic & beautiful way. I am hugely grateful to them. My thanks to my wonderful teachers Ellen Lee, Sarah Ryan & Dr Kausthub Desikachar.
I teach weekly Online & In person Private & Group yoga classes in Shenley, Hertfordshire & surrounding areas & on yoga residential weekends and workshops for the Yoga for Health Foundation (YHET), also Well-Being sessions for office staff and a yoga session at a Mindfulness Retreat.
