I love to travel and have learnt from many beautiful teachers abroad.
In Bangkok I practiced Vipassana meditation at Wat Mahathat with the Buddhist monks that live and teach there. In 2010 took Reiki 1st degree with my teacher in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I am now an 8th Generation Reiki Master.
In India I lived and studied yoga at Swan Ashram in Goa. I then completed my 200hr Teacher Training at Himalaya Yoga Valley and I am a member of Yoga Alliance.

Once teaching I fell in love with the calming and restorative effects of yin yoga. I have trained with Sarah Lo and this continues to be my area of passion.
My time in India left me inspired to teach in a style that honours a traditional approach. I focus on healing and strengthening the body and mind with internal focus, connection to the body and use of breath.

Restorative Yoga Class

My intention for every class is to allow space for you to come back home to yourself.
In a restorative session I will guide you through simple and easy meditation, breathing techniques and some mindfully executed yoga poses. This is not about pushing and going to your absolute maximum and the focus is not on how deeply you can get into the physical postures. This is about stopping, coming in and finding some stillness. This is about learning to move effectively but gently into the body.
My aim is to pass on the full practice of yoga which includes the physical postures but also the power of breathing, the philosophy behind the practice and perhaps most importantly for me gaining an understanding all to how we can all find more peace through the calming and re-balancing of the mind.
I came to yoga after experiencing high anxiety, stress and panic attacks. Through yoga I navigated my way through that and continue to navigate though life challenges with more ease, grace and peace. Injury through a car accident led me to restorative yoga and allowed me space to heal physically but what I also found was a practice that taught me to nurture myself very deeply.
All ages and all abilities are welcome to this practice and I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
