I started to practice Yoga around eleven years ago to improve my posture, release stress and to escape my busy mind! Throughout my journey with Yoga it’s taught me how to deal with life’s challenges in a wonderfully creative way.
I’m constantly drawing inspiration from the many styles of Yoga that I practice. From fast paced Ashtanga to spiritual Jivamukti, restorative and Yin. I’m passionate about teaching from a place that I can relate to in my own practice.
With a fun loving spirit, I ensure my classes are playful and accessible, creating a safe environment where students can move freely, feel good and experience a positive mind body connection. I teach a mixture of yoga styles from Vinyasa Flow – a beautifully creative, dance-like style that links movement with breath, to Yin Yoga – a slow, grounding, deeply meditative style of practice.
Having travelled all over the world in 2008 and South America in 2015, my teaching style has been influenced by the many places I have experienced. Travelling has helped me grow spiritually and allowed me to connect with people from all walks of life. Travelling will always be a passion of mine and i’ve recently taken long trips to India and Cambodia to explore and immerse myself further in various styles of Yoga & Meditation.
In April 2015 I became Yoga Alliance Certified to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow after an intensive 200 hour course in Costa Rica. Since then i’ve continued to attend training workshops for self development with Claire Missingham (2015), Aim True founder Kathryn Budig (2016 & 2017), Ashtanga legend David Swenson (2016) and Sarah Powers (2018).
I’m grateful for my ongoing yoga practice with my Jivamukti teacher Andrea Everingham and Rocket teacher Danny Solomon here in Manchester. After much consideration of what direction to take my teacher training in, I decided to deepen my understanding of the energetics behind Yin Yoga and working with the Chakras. In April 2017 I studied with The Yoga People on their ‘Pranification – a Chakra Journey’ and ‘Mandala Vinyasa Methodology’ teacher training courses and gained 70 Yoga Alliance CPD hours. Then in November 2017 I also attended The Yoga People’s 100 hour Yin Yoga, the journey from Anatomy to Meditation module in Thailand. I am excited to be participating in Shiva Rea’s ‘The Art of Lunar Prana Vinyasa and Prana Flow Massage’ 37.5 hour teacher training in October 2018.
