Yoga is a balance for me, it is a place where both strength and softness, hot and cold, masculine and feminine can meet in harmony.
While living and working abroad and at sea from being 18, yoga was a place I could go to create calm and steadiness while working in a very unstable and hectic environment.
After working to a point of poor health both mentally and physically - even though I hadn't realised it at the time - I was able to commit to a more regular practice in a studio with teachers who could guide me further into my practice than I had ever been before. This is when the true love for yoga began to shine through even brighter than before. When my husband and I decided to make the transition from working at sea to working on land, I found myself in a situation that was very stressful and at times found myself to be in a place of depression and anxiety. However, those dark days brought me to a yoga teacher training with the perfect teachers for my situation who were able to help me deepen my practice further, and enable to me the skills to share that gift.
Now living and teaching full-time in Sheffield, I find my practice and my teaching to be a fluid experience, changing as I continue to learn, age, and grow, yet I maintain a focus on it being a personal practice for each individual where the true teacher is your own mind and body, and the real practice is often when you're not in a studio or on a mat.
I am privileged and honoured that students seem to enjoy my classes enough that I have been able to send myself for further training to specialise in yoga for sports, yin yoga and hatha and anatomy yoga skills and teaching.
Expect warm flows and focused work, sometimes soft and slow, sometimes strong and steady, I aim to help you get into your breath and your body.
"It's a constant practice and I'm grateful for the love and support to show up more and more with all of me"
