I have been practising yoga for almost two decades and was totally hooked after my very first class. It was a complete revelation! I walked out of that class and it was like I had woken up and seen things clearly for the first time. My whole body felt free, I was relaxed and could not get over how well I felt. I remember going to work the next day and telling a colleague that  I felt "big" (in a good way). I now know that this feeling was my energy being release to flourish from whatever  trapped state it had been in. My passion for yoga grew as did my personal well-being, and in 2005 I was given an opportunity to teach, I jumped at the chance.

I gained my teacher training diploma with the Devon School of Yoga in 2007 and then went on to qualify as a  Yoga Therapist, certified by Real Yoga, in 2012. I am registered with the Complimentary and Natural Health Care Council (CNHC). Over the years I have also attended several short courses and workshops with Yoga Campus, London. These courses have been based around the workings of the musculoskeletal system and the correction of bodily imbalances that can be prominent due to general wear and tear or injury.

I teach approximately 60 – 70 people a week over several general classes and also offer one to one or small group sessions for those who want a more personal approach, or simply do not have the time to join a regular class. I also run a specialist  class for people with MS, and work therapeutically with people one to one. (See Yoga Therapy Page for more detail).

Currently, I also teach people to become yoga teachers and yoga teachers to become yoga therapists for Real Yoga. I have completed The Award in Education and Training at Heart of Worcester College, partnered with The University of Warwick.

I have experience of many styles of yoga and have spent time in India to gain knowledge of their approach. I like to apply myself with a holistic and eclectic approach that takes in not only the physical but also the more subtle aspects that yoga has to offer. However, even though I do always present my classes as professionally as possible I do like to keep it light hearted and have some fun at the same time.
