I have been teaching yoga for over 10 years, and am a yoga teacher and yoga therapist. I initially trained with Ruth White's Iyengar-inspired Karuna Yoga school, then with the amazing Shiva Rea's Samudra yoga school with some 4000+ hours of yoga teaching experience, and now a qualified yoga therapist and Yoga Alliance Professionals - accredited SYT (Senior Yoga Teacher).
So how did I get here? My mother said I could dance before I could walk... So goes the song and it's definitely my song. I was a crazy keen dancer as a kid. I've studied many many dance styles, and yoga has always been in my life too. I used to do yoga with my mum to TV programs with a lady called Lynn Marshall. When I went to uni I used to use her books to do yoga in my room. I've always loved it.
I spent my 20s trying different styles and teachers, but it was after I had my first baby that I found a teacher that I really loved, and he helped me start on the teaching path. The teacher I first trained with, Ruth White, was a student of Iyengar when he first came to London with Lynn Marshall, the lady who I practiced with all those years ago with my mum... All is connected!
Then in 2015 I smashed my back up in a ski chair lift accident and thought my physical yoga was at an end. I have a ruptured disk and a whole bunch of metalwork in my back, but my yoga practice helped me rehabilitate really quickly. This inspired me to work with others in therapeutic and physical rehabilitation yoga.
I graduated in 2018 from the prestigious YogaCampus Yoga Therapy diploma and love to work 1:1 with anyone who is suffering from pain or stress, or conditions that can be exacerbated by stress – respiratory, autoimmune conditions… I have had some great results with asthma and Crohn’s disease sufferers. I’m also a little hypermobile, and have had great results working with others who suffer from the many symptoms of this condition.
I am a very proud mother of two young men, and my own birthing experiences (one particularly which was an unpleasant and disempowering experience) mean I am also committed to transforming and empowering women's birthing experiences. I am a trained doula (birthing assistant) which informs my 'Radiant Goddess' Prenatal Yoga classes, and now also ‘Radiant Wisdom Goddess’ for women transitioning through and beyond menopause.
I am a spiritual seeker, a ferocious reader, a poet, a writer, am embracer of all spiritual traditions and passionately driven to transform and empower all to bring more joy into their lives.
