I invite you to pause and notice your next inhale, then notice the release of the exhale, listen, feel, be here now, drop right in.

Welcome, LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF...

I am passionate about holding a space for you to discover yourself through the practice of yoga, to nurture yourself and find some ease, some space through the gifts a yoga practice can bring, on and off the mat.

It’s not all about touching your toes, it’s the journey there that matters.

 

My Journey

I started attending yoga classes over 20 years ago, in my very early 20’s.  Yoga has been in my life since forever! My beautiful mum has ALWAYS practised yoga, my whole life, and continues to be my number one inspiration.

For me, yoga stood apart from other things as I would almost lose myself in that hour in class.  To move by body whilst being aware of how the breath felt, to be so consumed that for brief moments, my busy mind might find a little pause from the endless chatter that normally consumed my head.  I was hooked!  I felt like I had found what I was looking for, without knowing I was looking for anything.

And physically, being a tall lady, I had mostly slouched my way through my teenage years and been very shy; yet here, I began to stand a little taller and began to feel more confident in myself, both physically and mentally.  Needless to say I was hooked.

The biggest turning point in my yoga journey was pregnancy yoga.  Pregnancy yoga gave me the tools to connect in with my ever changing body, to learn how to respond and find ease and also led me to a very natural birth, where, most importantly, I was in control.  This was all thanks to having learnt the ability to tune into my body and how to use my breath; using my breath to release tension, learning how to focus on parts of my body to find a little bit of ease.

My LEARNING

I spent the most amazing 15 months training to become a fully registered Hatha Yoga Teacher, qualifying back in 2018.  What a beautiful and transformational journey that was and continues to be.

I continue to learn and grow my knowledge and have since completed further training to teach Pregnancy Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation and Mantra with further teaching tools by training in Advanced Sequencing and Functional Anatomy. All courses are recognised and fully accredited by the Yoga Alliance Professionals.

I am 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.

My Practice

Some days I love a fast, strong flow practice – the energy rush it gives me can be incredible.  Other days I love to lie on the ground and have a stretchy roll around - what I describe as lush yoga!  Sometimes I like to balance to the two. It all depends on me, in that moment.  What serves me.  And it’s way more than that hour on the mat.

Yoga isn’t something I do and teach, it’s about how I choose to live.  Yoga helps me to find my voice and 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 too!

My Teaching

I am here for you.  I want to hold the space for you.  I invite you to leave your day at the door and come into this environment to nurture yourself through connecting to your body and breath.  Creating shapes that help to open your body, to release some tension and aches and in turn creating space in your body for your breath to reach.  To leave class feeling a little softer, a little taller and a little more connected to you.

I teach complete beginners through to yoga teachers!  Everyone in between.  Find out about my class styles here.

Whatever the style of the class, my primary focus is on you.  Allow me to hold the space for you to connect.
