I grew up in England and was introduced to yoga through my background in physical theatre, and performance. As a performer I was initially attracted to the physical side of yoga and how it could be used as a tool for creative expression. The more I practised though the more I started to notice the grounding benefits it had on my life. Having always been a perfectionist, empathic individual and an introverted extrovert discovered that yoga helped me to get out of my head and manage my anxiety taking me into a state of flow free from the pressures of daily life and the judgement of the modern world.
Initially, I trained in Ashtanga but my passion for creativity in movement led me to explore and discover different styles of yoga and movement disciplines. These included yogic arts (A fusion of martial arts, thai massage and yoga), circus arts including trapeze, hoop and acro, calisthenics and contemporary dance. My rich experience in these different fields have given me a rich interdisciplinary approach to my teaching which explores how you can get into the ‘flow state’ on purpose using movement as a tool for mindfulness,communication, creativity and self- expression.
Over the last few years, I have been lucky enough to do what I love all over the world teaching in over 16 different countries across all 4 continents. As well as teaching yoga classes, workshops and children’s yoga teacher training I also have a huge passion for working in social enterprise and community education. One of my biggest intentions behind teaching is to promote inclusivity. At all times I aim to break down any potential personal, social, emotional and indeed educational barriers that individuals may be facing. I particularly enjoy working with vulnerable young people with mental health issues, social, emotional and behavioural problems and additional special needs.
