Yoga is my life and it's my passion to teach it! I was introduced to yoga as a teenager, by my Dad who was trained by B.K.S. Iyengar. My first career was as a midwife. Then back problems encouraged me to return to Iyengar yoga. With regular classes my back improved and this inspired me to train as a teacher. After the required 3 years supervised practice with an approved Iyengar Teacher, I was accepted on the 2 year teacher training course, qualifying in 2007 and have been teaching ever since in both England and France. I visit the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India on a regular basis to deepen my practice with the Iyengar family and other experienced teachers trained by them. Yoga not only keeps me healthy but sustains and nourishes me. My mission is to help and inspire others to enjoy the many benefits that yoga brings.

"Yoga has been my passion for several years now. I discovered it by accident and straight away I noticed the difference from just a 60 min class and I became fascinated!
Yoga quickly became a regular part of my life. It began to be my go to. Whenever I needed to go inwards, to ground myself, to recharge, to unwind, to quieten my mind, to find peace or just to feel good - I hit the mat. Aside from that, as a runner and office worker, I also noticed the benefits in my posture and from stretching out my muscles.
In the end, just practising was not enough for me, I wanted to teach, so that I could pass on the benefits to others. I went to India, the birthplace of Yoga and studied my 200 hours teacher training at Sampoorna Yoga School in Goa, qualifying as a teacher of Ashtanga and Vinyasa. The benefits to my well-being, mentally and physically still amaze me and I am so grateful to be able to share this with others.
Looking to gain flexibility, tap into your inner peace, or just take time out for you? Get in touch and contact me. I look forward to seeing you on the mat!"

Zen yoga originates from the Zen Buddhist tradition and the physical energetic exercises practiced in some Zen temples. Zen yoga focus the attention on the physical alignment, flow of energy and mindfulness of the body and the body sensation in a non judgemental way. By bringing awareness to the areas of tension in the body with kindness, we allow the release of that tension to happen. Be ready for an hour of movement mediation while still challenging you physically. You will leave feeling relaxed and energised at the same time. With continued regular practise, positive changes in the body and mind can be achieved.
