I began practising yoga in 2005, like many people I first came to it as a form of exercise, and then discovered the many other benefits. I felt energised, stronger, and my low mood lifted. It was these shifts I first noticed, only later realising the subtler changes within; how it focused the mind, brought me into the body, reducing levels of stress and anxiety. Yoga led me to being interested in health and well-being from within.

I have since practised in a range of styles of yoga, including: Vinyasa, Yin, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini, as well as other movement practices: Feldenkrais, TRE, The Alexander Technique, and through all these discovered my own postural imbalances, healed an old injury, and become conscious to how amazing Yoga is for the human body – I am inspired by the incredible teachers I have been so fortunate to have, and continue to be highly motivated to keep learning and share this knowledge.

In 2016, I made the decision to follow my passion and train with the British Wheel of Yoga to become an Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher.

My practice has evolved, these days I am less likely to be sweating it out in fast-paced classes, or pushing myself to make a shape - I now work to strengthen and realign, and focus on a more interoceptive practice, and somatic movement – appreciating the subtle nature of yoga as a powerful tool to develop inner awareness and bring balance to mind and body.
