My yoga practice was on and off for many years… not really connecting with its wholeness just focussing on the physical benefits. One summer evening back in 2013, I randomly participated in an Iyengar yoga class and fell in love…. with yoga. The ‘light on yoga’ went on and yoga got well and truly under my skin, I was hooked. At first, I was just amazed how once I stepped onto the mat, I thought of nothing else besides the practice, the rhythm of my breath, and the movement of my body. I found a sense of calm and stillness and in that stillness found clarity, peace, and connection. Over time, I discovered breath-work, breathing with awareness. How had I come so far in life without appreciating the breath … the most precious thing I have? I learned how to feel from the inside out, to explore, trust and be curious about life. I had so many questions and an unquenchable thirst to learn more. Yoga reignited my passion for reading and the book stack next to my bed rapidly grew. Early 40s, children now young adults and in a job that I really disliked I started to contemplate the big questions …. who am I, what is my purpose, what does life want from me?
Many books, travels, trainings, and workshops later, I now have over 600 hours of training in Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin and Restorative Yoga to share with you. To compliment this, I am also trained in massage therapy, NLP and Ayurveda. I recently returned from a wonderful 8-month adventure through Asia, spending time in India, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. Finally ending in Bali where I hung out for 4 months, practicing and sharing yoga online during lockdown…not sure I could have wished for a better place to be ‘stranded’!
I share my practice and love of yoga with others, with a focus on the breath and mindful movement to create a nurturing practice that supports your connection to yourself, others, and all that you do. Expect a plethora of sounds, aromas and sensations with space to breathe, transform and get lost in the flow…. and a gorgeous head massage.
Offering a practice that is accessible and profound for everyone – I hope you will join me on this journey.
