My love for yoga developed during my career in marketing. Discovering how it offered deep release from the pressures of the high-paced achievement-driven corporate world, I found balance and clarity of mind through regularly practicing yoga. This empowered me to take the decision to make teaching yoga my full time career; driven by the possibility of helping people to let go of physical and mental tension, and to find a greater sense of ease and well-being.
A former marathon runner and IronmanÂ® triathlete, I was also captured by the power of yoga to energise and transform the body and mind. I bring to my yoga practice a deep understanding of how to harness muscle energy in order to build core strength and stability. Bringing awareness to the body with a clear focus on precision and alignment, my classes combine flowing movement and static postures to energise, strengthen and release.
My classes are suitable for all experience levels, from complete beginners to the more advanced. I teach with awareness and compassion for each individualâ€™s needs and abilities and I dedicate a high level of personal attention to each student to ensure that postures are performed accurately and safely. I also work with the clear intention of helping each individual to develop their yoga practice progressively over time.
My practice and teaching is rooted in Hatha yoga but has been influenced by a wide variety of yoga styles, including Anusara, Sivananda, Vinyasa flow and Iyengar. I have been inspired by studying with experienced teachers from around the world including Laura Gilmore, Jeff Phenix, Jason Crandell, Anna Ashby, Meghan Currie and Bridget Woods Kramer. I have also spent time in India, where I practiced at the Sivananda ashram in Kerala.
