Yoga Teacher

I bend so I don’t break… my daily mantra 

I have been practicing Yoga on and off for 20 years. I love how good you can feel after a class, how revived and refreshed I feel. 

Yoga was something I always came to when I was suffering in some way be it stress or illness. I noticed how I would always turn to a class at these times and afterwards noticed how amazing I would feel.  I would feel happier in my mind but also at ease in the body. The fact this was all connected didn’t even cross my mind then. Years later I decided I wanted to help others experience what I do in my practice.

I qualified as a Yoga teacher in July 2017 and have been teaching ever since.  I love the way in creating space in the body we can free up hidden emotional tensions that are stored in the body. When we release these tensions we ultimately feel so much happier. 

Helping others to find the light in themselves and create space in the body and mind; giving them the tools to lead much happier, healthier lives is why I love teaching.
