YTT 200hr, fully insured, Yoga Alliance qualified.

I originally trained as a dancer, went on to study Psychology at University.  It was 2006 when I first discovered yoga. I was instantly hooked, taking over 5 classes a week!! Thus started my love affair with yoga. I went onto explore the different styles, from Bikram to Iyengar! It was so nice to find something again after years of dance training, that allowed me to balance, re-focus and calm. I now cant imagine my life without moments spent on a mat!

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in Byron Bay, Australia in 2011, at Byron Yoga, studying yoga philosophy and ethics, meditation, breath work, anatomy and physiology, sequencing and postural alignment.  Upon moving to Darwin, found a fab little yoga studio, Agoy Yoga, got chatting with the owner and after teaching a trial class the following week, started as a new teacher at the studio. It turned out to be the most enlightening, inspirational, challenging experience any newly trained yoga teacher could want…

My style of yoga has developed into a dynamic flow through the traditional Ashtanga yoga asanas, with movement at its core. I believe movement to be the best way to explore and connect with the body, mind and soul. I have definitely learnt through yoga, that in life we all strive for a bit of balance, as we evolve and grow, so do our preferences. The beautiful thing with yoga is that it allows you to recognise and accept these changes. Each time you practise will be different from the last, but there has never been a time that I didn’t feel more wonderful at the end of a class than I did at the beginning! There are so many different styles of yoga and teachers.. so find what works for you at this moment and go with it!

Later in 2011 I went on to complete my Pre-natal and Post-natal Yoga Teacher Training with Bliss Baby. Yoga is a truly wonderful experience for a soon to be mother, with so many wonderful techniques to prepare for the birth of your baby and then to nourish, re-vitalize and energise as a new mum and the bubs can enjoy it too.

2013 bought around moving back to the UK and shortly after having a baby. I took a bit of time off to re-focus, explore my new job as a mamma and discover my new needs from yoga and life. Yoga teaches us to accept and embrace change and 2013 taught me that more than ever……

Living in SW19, I was lucky enough to find the wonderful Lauren, at Laurenyoga in Colliers Wood, where after doing her fab pregnancy yoga and postnatal, mums n bubs yoga classes, went on to work with Lauren as her cover teacher, taking me to the gorgeous Gooseberry Bush Centre in Wimbledon and then taking over her classes at the Johmard Centre in Colliers Wood in March 2015.
