My yoga classes are personal, varied and fun. Anatomy & the structure of postures is key to a safe yoga practice & I provide verbal & hands-on adjustments to bring your body into better alignment, which facilitates skilled strengthening & stretching. I assess each individual & work with all my students to realise their highest potential.

 

Yoga has had & continues to have a transformational effect on me. Through yoga, I have developed a deeper understanding & awareness of my physical body & breath. It has enabled me to heal injuries & imbalances & to treat my body with the deepest respect.

 

Yoga has facilitated an understanding of the deeper currents of my mind & spirit, teaching me compassion, forgiveness, acceptance & freedom amongst many other qualities.  Yoga keeps me steady & brings abundant joy. 

 

Teaching yoga gives me a profound sense of purpose & fulfilment. I believe that yoga can serve all people from all walks of life & it is my wish to share its gifts to those who wish to travel on an incredible journey of love, happiness & self-discovery.
