be followed with a warm up to loosen up the joints ready for our main practice. Towards the end of the class we will concentrate on poses seated on the ground, working more meditatavely to get deeper into releasing tight muscles. The class will end with rest.

I believe that it is vital to guide and teach my clients to
channel the pressure of their busy lifestyles and use it as the key to succeed in their well-being journey. My Level 3 qualification as both a Yoga Instructor and Personal Trainer enables me to fully understand and tailor programmes for: enhancing strength, flexibility, postural improvement, toning or stress management. I take great pleasure in combining my two areas of expertise to create routines that everyone can enjoy in a gentle and relaxed environment.
I have been teaching Yoga for 17 years. I trained initially with the Yoga Academy London (200 hours RYS) followed
by advanced Yoga training in Byron bay with Yoga Arts in Australia (RYS 500). I am also a Perinatal yoga teacher, trained with Birthlight and I am also trained in Pilates,Thai yoga massage and Yin yoga.
My teaching style is a mindfulness based practice which focuses on embodiment within the Asana (yoga posture). This grounds and centres the body and cultivates awareness.
In this state, the mind is present and without thought so that it can fully connect to the body and the breath without judgment or expectation. This creates a feeling of spaciousness, freedom and flow and an acceptance of what is. Brilliant training for life! I incorporate many different forms of yoga I have learnt from numerous workshops, trainings, self-practice and enquiry.
