I first came across the practice of Yoga in 2001 in my home town in England. I instantly felt a strong connection to the practice and knew Yoga was going to be a part of my life.

I teach from a place of love & encouragement; Ashtanga Yoga, Prenatal Yoga,Postnatal Yoga, and Yoga for Pelvic Floor Health.  With these practices I help people to find the best practice for them. Either that being to build strength and increase flexibility, or bring calm to one’s thoughts and life, or to heal from injury and trauma. I believe that yoga can be for everyone, which is why I adapt to the students level of ability.

With Sharath Jois in 2010

Certified in Ashtanga Yoga by Paul Dallaghan, Neil Barker, Harmony Slater and Jeff Lichty at Yoga Thailand in 2006. I’m certified in Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga by Juliette Kurth, Restorative Yoga by Jillian Pransky and Pelvic Floor Yoga by Leslie Howard. I’ve had the opportunity to study with Sharath Jois at KPYJA in India, and continue to practice yoga daily. Before establishing a yoga practice, I trained as a professional dancer at one of London’s leading Dance school, Laban. This time allowed me to explore and develop a thorough understanding of movement analysis and anatomy.

 
My children are my practice

My children are my practice

My daily practice supports and reflects where I am in my life; Life is big, practice is small; practice is big, life is small. There is a continual conscious action to deep listening. I’ve practiced throughout injury, pregnancy, postpartum depression, pelvic pain, sexual trauma and Diastasis Recti Abdominus.  My practice is a healing lifeline of support for my body, mind and spirit. It creates space for me to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It holds me when I’m down, and provides strength & energy when I need to stand strong; showing me the light among the shadows and teaching me to breathe without fear, but with love.

I feel very grateful to have shared the teachings of yoga in London (UK), Sydney (Aus), Los Angeles (USA) and now Grapevine (Texas).

I live in gratitude to all my teachers: Mark Freeth, Hamish Hendry, Paul Dallaghan, Harmony Slater, Jeff Lichty, Neil Baker, Sharath Jois, Fiona Pullen, Jillian Pransky, Leslie Howard, Melissa Cooper Margolin, Maia Heiss & Pranidhi Vashney.
