I came to yoga 18 years ago via a meditation course. The very first class I attended felt like I had found me! I knew that I was going to practice yoga from that moment on. From those very first classes I became calmer, my head became clearer and I became happier. It didn't take long for my yoga practice to become a daily ritual as I felt the benefits in body, mind and spirit. 

I traveled to India for 6 months in 2003 and spent time exploring yoga in more depth, spending time at the Yoga Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh and practicing with many teachers all over India. During this period I felt inspired and I really started to connect with yoga philosophy beyond just the physical asana practice. It also affirmed my desire to teach.

On returning to the UK I trained with Jim Tarran (my teacher of several years and the founder of Vajrasati yoga) in the Vajrasati School of yoga and started teaching in 2004 and became fully qualified (Yoga Alliance 500 hours) in 2006. I am now a designated Senior Teacher of the Vajrasati school and within this role I assist on the Vajrasati teacher training course.  

I believe yoga is a constant journey of learning and I have furthered my development by returning to India for deeper study and continue to train through attending workshops and retreats and training with other teachers such as Cathy-Mae Karelse, Judith Lasater, Sarah Powers, Donna Farhi and Paul Grilley. 

My teaching style is calming and focused with particular attention given to breath awareness and cultivation and recognition of energy and inner states of being. I use dynamic and restorative (and a whole range of in-between!) asanas to bring us towards yoga. I teach based on the astanga (8 limbs - not to be confused with astanga vinyasa) path of yoga, incorporating yoga philosophy into my asana classes, and teaching other practices such as pranayama (breathing practices), dhyana (meditation) and mantra (chanting).
