BRINGING YOGA INTO YOUR LIFE
Have you always wanted to try Yoga but have never been sure? Do you think that you can’t try Yoga because you’re not flexible and can’t balance? What if you knew that you didn’t need either to come to a class?
YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE AND CAN BE FOR YOU
Yoga is for everyone no matter what your ability, the aim of the practice is to reconnect your mind to your body, to give you a better awareness of how you function and feel. And, more importantly, what feels good and what doesn’t.
We live such busy lives taking care of everyone around us that we often forget about ourselves. We develop a guilt for taking time out. This leads to a sense of ill health and dysfunction.
When you bring Yoga into your life you are providing a space for yourself to learn and develop a sense of well-being. This allows you to feel what is truly real and important to you.
CREATING AWARENESS TO FEEL
When you come to a class my aim is to provide a space for you to learn and discover an awareness of what feels good for you. I will take you through varied classes where I will explain the fundamentals of Yoga and how you can incorporate it into your day to day to life.

BREATHE, FEEL, FUNCTION
EVERY DAY’S A SCHOOL DAY
My journey into Yoga started when I was 17 and came about from intrigue. Throughout my experience, I decided I wanted to learn and became more and more interested in the anatomy of the body and function. This led to me studying Yoga Therapy in Australia because I had a keen interest in Yoga and addiction. This interest continued and over the years I have been fortunate enough to spend time with Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Scott Blossom, John Ogilvie, Elena Brower and my now teacher Tiffany Cruikshank. All of these people have been invaluable to me over the years, from sharing workshops, to teacher training. Each of them have taught me something and allowed me to find my own path in how I teach and discover my own voice.
Yoga for me goes beyond the mat, in the sense that it is a tool (a very wise man in India taught me this) that can be used as and when you need it. An hour on the mat is no more beneficial than a minute spent being aware of your breath. My passion, although I am referred to as a Yoga teacher is more about sharing rather than teaching because you are your own teacher.
I offer classes for beginners and experienced students and run specialist courses for fertility and back care. My O Life Programme is for people who wish to work privately with me. Through my training in Yoga Medicine and Yoga Therapy, I am able to work alongside health care professionals to help restore function and well-being back into your mind and body.
