I teach over 15 classes a week alongside being a full time mum to three gorgeous boys.
The thing I love most about yoga is that it can be modified to suit anyone !.. The thing I love most about teaching yoga is helping people feel good in themselves.
One of my favourite styles of yoga is yin... Yin yoga is much more about quality than quantity ...
The perfect complement to other sports or simply a busy lifestyle.
By holding asanas for longer periods of time (3 mins +) you work deep into the the body's fascia beyond the muscle fibres and into the connective tissue...
Yin yoga is the ultimate stretch, increasing flexibility, stilling the body and stilling the mind. It is perfect for all levels as we work slowly and each posture can be modified to suit your body.
Although I had dipped in and out of Yoga over years, my passion truly began when I turned to Yoga to guide me through personal and mental health difficulties. With a regular practise, as well as gaining strength and flexibility in my body, I was amazed at how quickly I gained both in my mind also. For the first time in my life, I began to feel safe in my body and with my thoughts, and to accept myself. This feeling inspired me to want to share with others.
My classes use flowing postures, pranayama, meditation and visualisation to uplift and refresh on a physical and mental level. As well as having fun with postures, it is my hope that each student will begin to unfold an inner experience and become their own teacher.
My background includes a long career in entertainment, studying councelling and Mothering 3 beautiful children. I also do charity work to raise Autism awareness and acceptance.
