My first ever experience of yoga was going to a few classes with my Mum when I was about 18. My lasting memory is a positive one, but in truth I wasn’t ready to embrace all that yoga has to offer.
In 2007 circumstances catapulted me into India and total immersion into everything yoga. India is a Mecca for teachers from all over the world and I was lucky enough to study with Emil Wendel and the late Sue Pendlebury. My love affair with yoga and with India was well and truly underway.
Since then I have returned to India many times and continued to study, most recently completing my 500 hour with Julie Martin and Emil Wendel. In addition, I have also studied with Rachel Hull, Jodi Boone and Jeff Phenix. I am eternally grateful to all my teachers, each of whom have inspired me to find my own true voice and to teach the way I do.
As well as teaching yoga, I continue to lead and run workshops, trainings and development programmes on communication skills, facilitation and leadership in the corporate sector. Being passionate about all the things that yoga encompasses, I usually manage to weave in aspects yoga into everything I do.
Walking in nature with my partner Alec and our two dogs (Jack and Larry) always grounds me back to Mother Earth. Cooking and particularly baking are like therapy for me – I can relieve stress and get back into heart-centred love by having a good bake-a-thon!
