I started to practice Yoga around eleven years ago to improve my posture, release stress and to get out of my own head. 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. Although I love to mix up the styles of my daily Yoga practice, my passion lies in teaching Vinyasa Flow – a beautifully creative, dance-like style of Yoga that links movement to breath.
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.
Having travelled all over the world in 2008 and more recently 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 returned from a trip to India where I immersed myself further in various styles of Yoga & meditation.
In April 2015 I became Yoga Alliance Certified to teach Vinyasa Flow, since then i’ve continued to attend training workshops for self development and have attended weekend workshops with Claire Missingham (2015), Aim True founder Kathryn Budig (2016 & 2017) and Ashtanga legend David Swenson (2016).
I’m grateful for my ongoing yoga practice with my Jivamukti teacher Andrea Everingham and Mysore Ashtanga teacher Donna Southwell 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. I’m excited to share what i’ve learnt with my students, taking a fresh approach in my Vinyasa Flow routines and offering a new Mandala Vinyasa & Yin Yoga class from May.
