A passionate, modern yogi and yoga teacher, I am forever learning what yoga is for myself and others, as it is ever evolving. I love to learn and am always looking to progress in my development and knowledge. I am a feeler, a healer, an adventure lover and I strive to live my life as authentically as possible.
I love to create wholesome and nurturing classes, workshops and retreats, making them as approachable and authentic as possible. I encourage an inclusive environment for all and making sure my students feel supported and safe within the space and their own bodies.
Yoga, for me, has always been a journey of connecting to the body and finding balance in life. It has offered the space to explore and understand my body and mind on a deeper level to help move through day to day life with a little more ease and finesse, and to heal physical injuries and emotional trauma. I began my yoga practice whilst at university in 2010 in a couple of classes, but my practice became more frequent whilst in Australia in 2013 where I connected with Hatha Flow and Yin Yoga. I found the balance between yin and yang to benefit me greatly and I was able to match my practice based on energy levels and what my body needed in that moment. A forever student, I love to share all the experiences and development yoga has offered me.
In my classes you will be encouraged to move into your body, helping to build a deeper connection to how each posture feels, how the breath can act as the tool expand your practice and help to release stress and tension being held. I always encourage you to honour your body, your mind and your heart to meet yourself where you are in that moment, releasing expectations, judgements and comparisons to others and yourself, knowing that each time you step on the mat will be a new and different experience. A sense of play and lightness is infused throughout the classes to stay grounded into yourselves and not take it all too seriously. It's only yoga!
As a full time, international Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200 & YACEP Provider), certified Holistic Health & Life Coach, Reiki Master Practitioner and Massage Therapist, everyday is varied and different, and I love it! Currently based in Devon, UK, I am currently putting together a Yoga Teacher Mentorship Course for new yoga teachers to navigate their way into building a successful and fulfilling yoga teacher career.
I teach a variety of different styles in studio settings, retreats, workshops and private corporate groups, including having the privilege to teach SUP Yoga to the Marines and Help For Heroes team in the Plymouth H4H Centre as part of their recovery and rehabilitation programme.
I am embarking upon a 300hr Advanced Yin Yoga teacher training with Jo Phee, Senior Assistant to Paul Grilley, leader in fascial research, to develop my knowledge and can not wait to share this with my students.
