I have been practising Hatha Yoga for 17 years and taught since 2006. In addition to Hatha I have experience of practising Dru, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Pre-natal Yoga. I am a Yoga Registered Teacher (YRT -200hrs) with the Independent Yoga Network and am qualified with The British School of Yoga. I also hold a British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Certificate and am fully insured.
My background is in Occupational Therapy where I specialised in Mental Health however I left the NHS after fighting lymphatic cancer (twice over) during my 20's to retrain as a yoga teacher. Yoga helped me so much during this challenge that I wanted to make it part of my life and inspire others to do so, educating them about its profoundly healing benefits. Since teaching, two of my students have gone on to become yoga teachers themselves with successful classes of their own.
I am also a qualified Nutritional Adviser, Reiki Master Practitioner and a busy Mum of two young girls. In addition, I enjoy the great outdoors, swimming and running, and am a dedicated Pilates student.
