I have been fascinated by yoga, Buddhism, spirituality and alternative therapies for over two decades. After years spent sitting in an office, I began travelling and this opened my eyes to the possibility of an alternative way of being in the world. Meditation retreats, Ayurvedic massage training and yoga teacher training followed and I now love living in Brighton, sharing my experience and learning more through teaching.
I trained with the Vajrasati school and found my home in yoga due to its heart-opening and creative style that is grounded in the teachings of the ancient texts. Practicing yoga for me is a way of 'getting out of my head' and allows me to find spaciousness in my being. Through this I find that I can be in the world in a much more grounded, connected and loving way. I love all elements of yoga: its philosophy, the exploration of body/mind through asana practice, meditation and mantra. My intention is to teach in a mindful, grounded yet playful way which is beneficial for all.
I have been sharing yoga since 2018 and am grateful that I now teach in a range of communities. I have my regular drop-in classes, which I love and each class has its own community. As well as the drop-in classes, I also teach regularly at a local mental health recovery centre, which includes classes for clients as well as staff. I teach a weekly therapeutic class through the Brighton Yoga Foundation, a bi-weekly for residents at Brighton Housing Trust, a weekly meditation class for staff at a local school, as well as adhoc classes when requested, for example, wellbeing days for NHS staff. I am so passionate about sharing the practice in all settings so everyone can benefit.
