"I’ve been practicing yoga in various forms since 1999. With a background in fitness, I was initially drawn to the physicality of the practice before finding the beauty of benefits of meditation and pranayama. I enjoy the strength, flow and balance of a regular vinyasa practice.
I was pregnant with my son throughout my yoga teacher training which was an incredibly special time in my life and fostered my keen interest in pre and postnatal yoga. I love structuring classes that support people’s practice no matter what their current life stage. My goal is that students find something that resonates with them in such a way that they can implement it in their everyday life, such as awareness of the breath or a certain posture to relieve tension.
To me, yoga is a holistic practice and a way of living. I always come away from my time on the mat feeling more whole and centred physically and more connected emotionally and spiritually. I use the practice and philosophy of yoga to gently guide me through all aspects of my life, particularly in my relationships with others and the earth, and endeavour to accept myself and where I’m at in my journey, flaws and all."
