I began studying yoga aged 20 in Australia, where my first teacher showed me the wonderful power that belongs to all of us, just for the fact that we are alive, whatever state our body may be in. Ifulfilled a long-held desire to become a yoga teacher at the Arhanta Yoga Ashram in Madhya Pradesh, India.
I'm the founder and owner of Sunrise Yoga. I'm passionate about yoga and health and wellness. I help you find the ease and freedom in movement, create a space for adults to learn about themselves,their bodies and use these tools to help with everyday stresses and strains of modern day life. I love all things that promote the health of the body and mind and I would describe myself as a health advocate. I am Plant-Powered and I hold workshops on maximising your health.
I am a firm believer that Yoga holds something for everyone, whatever their stage in life and that Yoga skills can really help you maintain a physical, emotional and mental balance - giving you a firmfoundation for life's ups and downs. Since then I have undertaken comprehensive training to become a Yoga teacher and further training in Pregnancy Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Yoga for Mum and Baby, Children's Yoga - working with some of the leading teachers in this field.
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 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.
The dynamic practise of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing sequence of postures that can increase strength, stamina, flexibility and balance. Promoting calmness, focus, and relaxation as we learn theseries and develop an appropriate regular practise to enhance our lifestyle.
We offer a range of classes from beginner level through all ages and stages of life and hold weekend Workshops in a number of therapies, philosophies and techniques. We are also home to the MayuraYoga School, running in-house Yoga Foundation, Yoga Teacher Training and Dance-In-Yoga Teacher Training Courses.
