Hatha, Somatics


My Yoga journey began 25 years ago when I first discovered the healing and grounding nature of a Hatha Yoga practice and how it instantly brought me in contact with myself.

Yoga practice demands attention to detail and encourages breathing patterns synchronised with movement. The effect after each practice session was that I felt enlivened and energised and at the same time there was a deep sense of relaxation and serenity. I felt rejuvenated and the more regularly I practiced, the more I touched a feeling of stillness and peace. Because this practice resonated so deeply with me, it was clear that my work would involve sharing with others the many benefits of Yoga as a healing modality.

I have been teaching for the last 15 years having received two in-depth Yoga Teaching Certifications accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance(UK and US). Over the last several years I have trained and complemented my teaching with Somatic Movement, a floor-based series of sequences which have a nurturing and healing quality. Somatic Movement enriched the teachings I was already offering and I continue to train in this field on a yearly basis as my own practice and my teaching style continues to evolve.

I have an ongoing interest and passion for learning about health and wellbeing and am currently delving deeper into the principles of Functional Medicine and furthering my studies in that area.

Over the last two decades I have been deeply influenced by the philosophy of Jiddu Krishnamurti, which has informed much of how I wish to teach and live, with a sense of curiosity and inquiry into the nature of how we move, psychologically and physically, through our daily lives.
