About Me

 

"Namaste!"

'The light in me greets the light in you'


I have been studying and teaching Hatha yoga since 1989.  Over the years, I have studied with a variety of teachers, allowing me to adapt my knowledge to the needs of many different students.

I enjoy bringing yoga into schools, universities and the workplace. I specialise in teaching yoga for better mental health and for people with substance misuse issues. 

I love teaching yoga because it invites people to find that compassionate stillness amid the busy-ness of life.  

Yoga gives me strength and flexibility – in both body and mind.

 

Some of the teachers I have studed with include Mukunda Stiles (Structural Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda), Clive Sheridan and Amy Weintraub. My teaching is informed by a variety of different inspirations including the Yoga sutras of Patanjali , Tripura Rahasya, Yoga Journal, the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and B K S Iyengar, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Arnold Mindell, and Pema Chodron

 

I am a mother of two and have found it invaluable sharing and exploring all aspects of yoga with my children. 

 

I am a member of the Independent Yoga Network (IYN), a trained massage therapist and bodyworker (I.T.E.C, Dip. B.W.), and have a degree in Environmental Biology and Computer Studies (BSc).
