I have been involved in yoga and attended classes of different types and styles throughout my life, having been introduced to Richard Hittleman’s books and TV programmes at a very early age by my mother. I am a BWY qualified teacher, and had the privilege of learning to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with David Swenson in London.
I continue to further my knowledge and experience of yoga through dedicated practice, and by teaching; my students constantly provide me with amazing new insights and inspiration. I have experienced study in several methods of yoga, notably Jivamukti, which I studied intensively for several years with Senior Jivamukti teacher Andrea Kwiatkowski, and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga which I discovered under the enthusiastic teaching of Helen Philips. Although I very much enjoy the strong physical practices these methods encompass, I am also committed to developing my teaching and practice in other methods such as Hatha, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga.
One of my main motivations for teaching yoga is to pass on to others the many benefits of a yoga practice, and to enable them to incorporate its gifts into everyday life. I believe that yoga teaches us how to interact more positively within our personal relationships and communities by first allowing us to get in touch with our true selves. I aim to teach in a way which makes yoga an enjoyable experience; life is for living, having fun, and that goes for yoga class too! Yoga teaches us how to be in the moment in order to take full advantage of every joyful experience we encounter.
