Teaching since 2009
I discovered yoga after my first wandering trip to India in 2009. For the next five years I practised weekly in central London to counter-balance working as an English teacher and hectic city living. On a holiday to Bali three years ago I undertook a yoga retreat for a week and had what you might call an epiphany. I had never felt that good, healthy, sensitive, conscious and at peace with myself. Since then I have practised yoga as a discipline, exercise, and philosophical and moral journey. In due course yoga has become my way of life, helping me through the dark times and enlightening the path forward.
Since completing 500 hours of Teaching Training in India, I have taught Vinyasa Flow, Yin and Restorative yoga in London and Goa. My classes are a balanced mixture of ancient and modern yogic traditions, with a gentle focus on alignment and subtle return to the breath. Often set to appropriate and uplifting music, my two-hour classes at Ashiyana are shared with love, compassion and joy.
After travelling and being unsettled for some years, through yoga I am grounded and have begun to gaze inward. Yoga is translated as unity: unity of body, mind and spirit; and unity between oneself and the earth.
My intention is to guide students on journey towards greater self-knowledge, peace, and harmony with the world around us.
