About Me

I (she/her) have been practicing yoga for nearly 30 years, I initially started as I was working in a highly stressful job in London and was searching for relaxation and a way to escape the daily grind.  Now it has become my way of life. 

I have been teaching yoga since 2008 and have many years of teaching experience of teaching many different people, groups and requirements.

I believe yoga is for every body.  If you can breathe, you can do yoga.

I’m influenced by many yoga styles and attend classes in many traditions and I go to tai chi, dance and pilates classes.

I’m often at yoga training days and conferences which keep my practice fresh by sharing ideas with fellow teachers and students.¬† I regularly attend workshops with Liz Lark in London.

I regularly receive healing, attend sound baths, group meditations and yoga nidra sessions and anything that allows me to take time out just to be.

When not practicing yoga you can find me walking my darling dog, gardening, watching live music or out for a run ‚Äď whatever the weather!

I’m an independent consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies organic products.
