The practice of Yoga found me after going through some difficult times physically and emotionally a few years ago. I decided it was time to change my life completely and turn over a new leaf, so I started being active, running, eating healthy and meditating. After a meditation class at the Buddhist Brighton Centre I opened my eyes to see a class gather around me and in post meditation state I decided to stay to watch the practice. It was clear from the moment they started that this was much more than just the postures- there was deep breathing, gazing in odd places and sweat. I decided there and then that I had to give it a go.

I started to practice both Hot Dynamic Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga as I loved  the Dynamic aspects behind each of these on both a physical and emotional level- Being a runner the practice has helped me physically recover and discover my body and its limitations as well and discover my mind and its ability to be calm and patient with the body.

After practicing Dynamic Hot Yoga for 2 years I trained and qualified as a teacher in March 2014.

In June 2014 I started a BSY (British School of Yoga) course for Ashtanga Yoga teacher training and have recently completed an intensive Ashtanga Yoga teacher training course with Manju Pattabhi Jois here in Brighton. Manju Jois, Ashtanga Yoga guru of Mysore, South India, is the oldest son of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, recognized worldwide as the foremost authority on Ashtanga Yoga.

In May 2014 I qualified a SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Yoga instructor at Hove Lagoon because sometimes you have to have a bit of fun with your practice!

Like the practice itself the knowledge that goes into teaching is never full and I regularly attend workshops in order to always be expanding my own knowledge or anything yoga related.

My teaching  is perfect for beginners and people exploring the practice  – there is no judgement, no force, no pressure. It’s all about taking time out for yourself and your physical and mental health. I have a true love and devotion for the practice and love sharing this.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat very soon to share the light of Yoga.
