I started practicing yoga at university, and began a regular practice while I was working and living in London. At first, the draw to yoga was purely physical – after years of competitive team sports I was looking for a softer way to treat my body. I was lucky to be lead by a teacher who taught me ways yoga was more than linear movements on a rectangular mat. I trained to teach in early 2016, and since then have taught to adults, teens and children in India, Mexico and the UK.
I have a daily practice which includes asana, breath work, mudra and mantra. I am also (slowly) learning to read and write sanskrit with Lucy Crisfield, and play the harmonium. Yoga infuses itself into all parts of my being, and other important things to me, such as poetry and gardening, are also meaningful parts of my practice.
My classes share asana (physical pose) and sequence with simplicity, so that you can be encouraged to intuitively listen to your own body and it's range of experiences that differ day to day. I believe deeply in the positive power of community (sangha) to support and aid our practice. My classes are intended as a reciprocal sharing of experience between you and I.
