Through my eclectic Yoga and Ayurvedic experience you can expect any class with me to be structured and flowing. I draw in my experiences from all the styles and paths that I have learned from over the years including Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Satyananda. I encourage students to find that line whereby they feel comfortably challenged in what they do, I encourage building strength, not strain. Most of all I hope that students can feel a sense of progression and growth that leads them towards their own personal unity. Be it simply between body and mind or something bigger than that.
So, here is a little about my experience. Let's start from the beginning, my personal practice began around 16 years ago. I started doing very gentle Hatha Yoga as a teenager to help me with some back troubles I was having. I was recommended by a physiotherapist to try yoga and pilates. At the beginning I found the very basic stuff hard work, as it required me to focus and find new control and balance that I had never had previously. After a short time the change was amazing, I felt so much better and just fell in love with the practice. Over the next few years I began to notice the way that Yoga works on not just the body but the mind too. I began to practice Pranayama breathing techniques and meditation to help me to relax, focus and overcome issues with sleeping.
A few years into my personal practice I became inspired and started to notice the profound effects Yoga had on others around me. I then realised that I wanted to learn how to use Yoga to help others.
