About me

My approach to Yoga has been influenced by a variety of inspirational teachers from a range of Yoga backgrounds.  I believe in lifelong learning and development as both a student and teacher of Yoga, meaning that my approach is constantly evolving and developing.

I believe in responsible practice as a Yoga teacher and am proud to be a British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) qualified teacher, having undertaken their extensive and well-respected 500 hours teacher training.  BWY was awarded National Governing Body status for yoga by the then Sports Council (now Sports England) in 1995.  I have also undertaken trainings in working with pregnant and post-natal students and in 2021 completed mindfulness meditation teacher training with the renowned Cyndi Lee. I am fully insured, DBS checked and have completed first aid and safeguarding training.

I love teaching because I’m passionate about being able to help people to experience the benefits of Yoga, both on and off the mat. I also enjoy bringing Yoga to rural communities where people might not otherwise have access to attending Yoga classes.  To this end I have worked in collaboration with the Big Lottery funded Fit Villages scheme.

You can read more insights into both my teaching approach and my own Yoga journey in my monthly blog here.
