I have been practicing yoga since 2012, at which time I was living in Manchester and was lucky enough to experience a variety of styles of teaching including Ashtanga Vinyasa. As is true for many people, my practice began solely at the physical level to compliment cardio-based training which I was involved in at the time. However, I soon realised that there was more to yoga than the postures themselves, and began to delve deeper. In 2016 I decided to complete a teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga at Centered Yoga in Koh Samui under the guidance of Paul Dallaghan. Since then I have attended a number of workshops and retreats, learning from a number of experienced teachers along the way, including Kathryn Budig, Monique Fryer, Donna Southwell, Vicki Shields, Andrea Everingham, Anna Taylor and Ana Forrest. I now vary my own practice between a number of styles, including Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Vinyasa Flow, Yin and Restorative.
I would describe yoga as a journey of self-inquiry in order to strip back the layers of ourself, to learn what our bodies need and to feel good. I regularly draw on the eight limbs of yoga in order to offer a fuller understanding of the practice.
I also work as an educational psychologist, and in 2017 I decided to train under Special Yoga in order to offer therapeutic yoga to children and families.
I hope to offer a fun, adaptable and calming practice which is open to all.
