A BIT ABOUT ME
After being drawn to yoga in 2011 to help minimise the physical effects of an exciting but stressful career, long daily commute, international travel and regular high intensity gym sessions, I was quickly amazed at the impact the practice had on both my body and mind.
Vinyasa flow yoga synchronises the movement in and out of poses with the breath and this rhythmic style of moving meditation allowed my hectic mind to slow down. It became the perfect balance of exercise and mindfulness for this highly stressed, time poor, fitness obsessed individual.
At the end of 2015, I took a step back from the high flying world of corporate crisis management and enrolled in the 200hr Yogahaven teacher training course, qualifying as a Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher at the beginning of 2016.
I am also yoga teacher to the First and U23 teams at Premiership football team Brighton and Hove Albion FC, where I work with the players to improve strength and mobility while using guided relaxation and breathing exercises to promote relaxation and recovery.
I have had the privilege of teaching people of all ages, sizes and professions; from NHS workers and city high fliers to models and athletes and truly love the inclusive ideology at the heart of yoga. It’s not about what you look like or how flexible you are; its about your own practice taking whatever shape it can on any given day. There is no expectation or competition, only individual exploration.
An adrenaline junkie at heart (runner, climber, gym rat), I bring enthusiasm and energy to all my classes. My teaching style is encouraging and supportive and my intention in every class is to help students develop and enjoy their own personal practise.
See you on the mat!
