ABOUT

I am a 200 hour yoga teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance, after completing my training with OrangeYoga and redkiteyoga in 2017, and a Level 1 Poppy Perinatal Yoga Graduate.

 

I am currently continuing my training on a 500 hour advanced teacher training course with OrangeYoga.

As well as being a yoga teacher, I am still a committed yoga student. I continue to practise with my teacher Ian Davis at The Yoga Studio in Cheltenham, and regularly attend workshops and professional training to further my own yoga journey.

My first experience with yoga was more than 15 years ago as a dance student. Approaching yoga from a dance background I was drawn to the challenging physical practice, but under the guidance of my teachers my yoga changed, and it has changed me. Today, I'm interested in finding balance in mind and body, movement and stillness, softness and strength to develop a rounded yoga practice.

I teach a creative vinyasa flow style class, so you can expect a gentle warm up to ground you, building to some flowing yoga sequences and yoga poses, with just the right level of challenge! I also teach Yin and restorative sessions to offer balance. All classes end with a deep relaxation and a few minutes in silent meditation to leave you feeling energised yet calm.
