My introduction to yoga came as a result of postural problems that began to affect me during my final year at Newcastle University and I was immediately struck by the transformative physical and mental benefits. After achieving a first class honours degree in Fine Art/History of Art, I decided to pursue yoga further by qualifying as a teacher and then taught in North America, Nicaragua and in Southern India where I explored many lineages from Hatha to Vinyasa.  During my travels I continued  to pursue my passion for art and design.

On my return to the UK, I decided to explore Anusara and trained under Leila Sagadee, Tara Judelle and Bridget Luff who continue to be my inspiration as well as taking an advanced training with Sianna Sherman. My passion is working with teenagers using yoga as a tool to work through stress and trauma, I trained with Hala Kouri, an expert in Somatic psychology for young people. I am accredited by Yoga Alliance and am trained in First Aid.

Having suffered with a lower back injury myself, I understand the importance of safe practice and therapeutic approaches. Ross Rayburn's therapeutic training gave me a wonderful depth of anatomical knowledge. I have found that creating a strong core is key to development on and off the mat. Throughout each class I support each individual need through modified sequencing and careful adjustments often integrating Restorative Yoga too.  

I am wholeheartedly committed to uplifting people's quality of life for the long term, just as Yoga and Reflexology has done for me.
