I am a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, with experience teaching classes, workshops and retreats all over the world, most recently for the fantastic Yoga on a Shoestring. A self-confessed yoga geek, I graduated in 2018 from Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training, an experience which invigorated my practice and my life. I am passionate about sharing the holistic benefits of yoga, and consider it a healing practice.
My Personal Yoga Journey
Yoga was a game-changer for me, at a time when I was going through a lot of personal turmoil. It gave me a space to become fully present, connected with my body and immersed in the beauty of movement and breathing. Teaching yoga is the greatest joy. It is an absolute privilege to watch students as they grow in confidence, strength, openness and acceptance. Many of us have little opportunity in our daily lives to take our focus inwards, and explore without judgement whatever comes up. Yoga provides that space.
My Yoga Classes
Most of the time I teach creative, playful classes of vinyasa yoga, a style in which you flow from pose to pose in a dynamic, fluid sequence. I integrate Forrest-inspired yoga elements into my classes, particularly the emphasis on deep core strength and longer holds of postures.
I also teach yin yoga on occasion, a practice that was my first yoga love.

A little 2021 update
I’m not teaching yoga at the moment, thanks to the pandemic and starting a part time PhD in Education alongside my full time job. I still love yoga and practise every day (it’s the only way I’m keeping sane right now!). I hope that when the time comes to restart teaching, I’ll have even more lovely stuff to offer.
