My classes create space and strength in the body and calm and quieten the mind.

We breathe, move and deeply relax.

I started practising yoga whilst struggling to manage the demands of a very busy and stressful job. Thank goodness I did! Yoga has provided me with the tools to better manage and enjoy my life in a busy city.

With a background in dance, drama and gymnastics, I have had a dedicated yoga practise since 2004 and found myself drawn to many different styles of asana – from the very dynamic to the very restorative – over my 13 years of practice. My classes incorporate elements from all these traditions along with pranayama (breathing practises) and meditation. Come expecting to breathe fully, move mindfully, stretch, strengthen and enjoy a deep relaxation.

I have specialist trainings in yoga therapy (for example, spine and pelvic health), vinyasa sequencing, restorative yoga, yoga for digestive health, one to one adjustments and the Chinese practice of Qigong. I was also initially awarded a distinction for my teaching in my training with Yoga Campus at the Life Centre, one of the most rigorous teacher training programmes globally.

My teaching is influenced by a number of leading teachers  – in particular Doug Keller, Mimi Kuo-Deemer, Joyce McMiken, Graham Burns, Kate Walker, Louise Grime and Ayala Gill.

I am based in Primrose Hill, Camden and work at a variety of locations across London and the south.
