Here you will find details of my group classes, private tuition, Thai yoga massage and yoga holidays and retreats to some truly inspirational destinations. An experienced yoga teacher withqualifications from both the British Wheel of Yoga and the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta centre, I have been practicing yoga for over 40 years, following in the footsteps of my mother.
I have been passionate about health and fitness for many years and I do passionately believe that movement, exercise and physiology can be very effective at alleviating and resolving many of theissues that we find as by products of living in the 21st Century - such as stress, depression, anxiety, obsessive behaviour etc.
I am an ex-Police officer and was one of the first officers on scene during the London riots. My Police patrol vehicle was set on fire and I witnessed the raw negative side of human nature, my ownlife was at risk. This experience lay heavy on my heart and caused me to feel hurt. My dedication to my practice and stepping onto my mat daily, not always for asana, sometimes I would just sit or meditate was what got me through my heartache.

I believe YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE, Yoga means 'unity' or 'yoke' and practising Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonising Body, Mind and Spirit. Hat-ha Yoga is a system of postures and breath for thewhole body - the postures (asana) are used as a physical practise to correct alignment, strengthen muscles, spine and core, increase flexibility and release anxiety and stress. We learn to synchronise the body and breath, thereby bringing balance to both body and mind.

I started my yoga practice in 2000, mainly as a form of exercise, but soon found that yoga had many additional benefits, particularly as a way of stilling my constantly chattering mind and as an aidto relaxation. Over the years I have tried many forms of yoga (including Hatha, Iyengar, Astanga, Dynamic Flow, Sivananda). In 2009, I started teacher training with Triyoga, to deepen my practice and understanding of yoga, under the tutelage of Anna Ashby and Joey Miles.
Having been encouraged by my own teacher, I decided to train as a yoga teacher so I could share the experience and benefits that yoga has given me in my life. I initially started practising yoga aboutten years ago, mainly for the physical improvements it gives of strength, stamina and flexibility. I was very keen on sports, namely running and swimming, but found I was suffering from frequent minor injuries which were preventing me from reaching my potential.

I first encountered Yoga whilst at university, I knew very little about the subject but I liked the calm that attending a class brought. I continued to practice throughout both of my pregnancies, andfeel that it was due to my practice that I had two relatively straightforward pregnancies and labours. It was after this that I felt the desire to share the gift of Yoga with others, and embarked on a teacher training course with Simon Low's Yoga Academy.
