Yoga for every body! I am passionate about promoting yoga for wellbeing and have always felt strongly that yoga is for everyone, regardless of body shape, age, gender, background and the ability to reach one’s toes. It seems to me that now more than ever people can benefit physically, mentally and emotionally from yoga and meditation practices, and so I have hurdled the discomfort and technical challenges and found myself online – click here for my weekly online class schedule and here for my recorded mini-classes to practice any time.
Yoga can be practiced anywhere and anytime and, for all its myriad forms and vast, unending body of learning and practice (encompassing philosophy, anatomy, breath work and chanting as well as the more visually obvious asana or poses), it can be as simple as pausing to take a deep breath into the belly, or making small movements instigated by the breath. Yoga can help you work with your edge of comfort – be that in balancing, using strength, the ability to sit calmly, or to open your mind to your own power and possibility.
I offer considered, breath-led, steadily flowing vinyasa yoga classes, balancing grounding and strength with uplift and energy. Yoga classes create a space for self-exploration and I encourage students to bring their whole selves, promoting self-care and the therapeutic and restorative nature of yoga practice. I draw on mindfulness practices and yogic philosophy and keep a light sense of humour throughout my classes.
As well as public classes, I organise and teach corporate yoga in workplaces, run private and small group sessions for adults, including pregnant women, as well as children and families. I am based in south London. If you are interested in knowing more, please contact me.
I’ve trained in Pregnancy Yoga through Yoga Campus with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Lisa White and completed Children’s Yoga Tree’s 40-hour Foundational Children’s Yoga Teacher Training course. I graduated in early 2018 from my 300-hour advanced teacher training with Jason Crandell and completed my foundational 200-hour teacher training in 2016 with some of London’s most well-regarded vinyasa yoga teachers, including Naomi Annand and Adam Hocke, at the beautiful Yoga on the Lane studio in Dalston. I have also undertaken training sensitive trauma, gender and cultural differences with the charity Ourmala, which works with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK, as well as serving on the board of that charity and volunteering for them.
I love learning and see these trainings as steps in a lifelong journey of ongoing study and practice.
