My personal yoga journey started in 2006. Prior to this I had a very stressful job with a large corporate firm in the City of London. I was young, fit and healthy and led a competitive, hedonistic lifestyle. I worked 12-16 hours a day, I burnt the candle at both ends and had little regard to wellness. I hadn’t exercised if I didn’t sweat. Then a nasty virus took hold, which I struggled to shift and suddenly my life was changed forever. With my immune system shot to pieces, I wasn’t able to exercise the way I did before and so my yoga journey began……
In yoga, I had found a system which conditioned, stretched and strengthened my body in the same way as a gym class whilst also boosting my immune system and calming my nervous system. I fell into it because my body was too weak to cope with traditional fitness classes, but I very quickly became hooked!
My teachings are grounded in the traditional lineage of Hatha Yoga. I honour the lineage whilst adapting my teaching to adjust to the modern world.
I haven’t always been a calm yogi (and I’m not always now….I’m a mother of two young children so I’m constantly being tested!). Yoga has taught me invaluable tools and techniques so I can quickly address stressful situations when they arise and prevent things from blowing up. If you know you need yoga to help you lead a more peaceful life but you can’t see yourself sitting around a camp fire in wide-legged harem pants chanting ‘Om’, then I completely understand. I’ve been there! Whilst the philosophy of yoga is a large part of my teaching, I recognise the more spiritual aspects of practice can be uncomfortable for some so I will seek to understand your mindset and teach in a way that is accessible to you.
Whatever your background, I can help you on your journey, and, from my own unique perspective, I will share my teachings with you and help you reach your goals. If you want to transform your yoga practice, then sign up for a one-to-one yoga session with us today.
