Welcome, LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF...
I am passionate about holding a space for you to discover and connect with yourself,
to nurture yourself & find some ease and space through the gifts a yoga practice can bring,
on & off the mat.
It’s not about touching your toes, it’s the journey there that matters.
Yoga has always been in my life...
I personally have practised yoga for about 30 years,
but my beautiful mum has ALWAYS practised yoga, my whole life!
And she continues to be my number one inspiration💕.
Yoga stood apart for me as I would lose myself in that hour in class.
To move by body and really feel it move...
...whilst being aware of how my breath felt...
...to be so consumed that for brief moments, my busy mind might find a little pause...
...I slept like a baby and woke up feeling GREAT!
This was good stuff.
Needless to say I was hooked & haven't looked back since.
It fills me with absolute joy and a huge amount of gratitude to be able
to share my love of yoga through my classes, events and retreats.
I have a huge outpouring of love for all of the votes from
my amazing class members which helped me win the award of
BEST YOGA STUDIO IN WARWICKSHIRE AND WEST MIDLANDS in 2022
AND AGAIN IN 2023. Two years running, which just blows my mind! 🥰
My Teaching style
I invite you to leave your day at the door and come into a lush environment to nurture yourself through connecting to your body & breath.
Creating shapes that help to open your body, to release some tension & aches.
Creating space for your breath to reach a little further.
Leaving class feeling a little softer, a little taller & a little more connected to you.
I teach complete beginners through to yoga teachers! And everyone in between.
Whatever the style of the class, my primary focus is you.
Allow me to hold the space for you to connect.
In 2017, I started the most amazing 15 months training to qualify as a 200 hour certified Hatha Yoga Teacher.
What a beautiful and transformational journey that was, & continues to be and I am now officially recognosed as an Experienced Yoga Teacher by Yoga Alliance Professionals meaning I can now mentor new Yoga Teachers and run workshops for them too.

I'm a true yoga geek and there is no stopping me on my learning journey so that I can enhance my own life and share this goodness and these teachings with you.
Yoga isn’t something I do & teach, it’s about how I choose to live.
Yoga helps me to find my voice & my way through life.
Through yoga I am able to find a conscious choice to be mindful to my body,
to my breath;
learning to listen to my true voice;
finding appreciation and gratitude for life;
learning to release that which doesn’t serve me;
finding balance for a healthy body and a happy mind.
Yoga is way more than touching your toes...
...although the stretch does feel good on the way!!
