Having come to yoga to find a sense of balance, I am now a passionate Vinyasa Flow and Pregnancy Yoga teacher who shares my practice with the aim of inspiring and encouraging others to nourish themselves, find their sense of balance and live their yoga both on and off the mat.
I undertook my yoga teacher training in the beautiful home of Yoga; Rishikesh, India in 2011 and undertook pregnancy yoga teacher training at Triyoga London in 2012.
My style of teaching is supportive and encouraging. Classes and workshops are adaptable to suit the needs of each practitioner, where beginners are welcomed and more practiced students are encouraged to go deeper into their practice and challenge themselves.
Vinyasa Flow classes are energizing and fun where my aim is to support students to focus on their breath, connect with themselves, stretch, strengthen and relax, leaving the session calm, refreshed and motivated to bring this ease into other parts of their lives.
Pregnancy yoga sessions incorporate traditional yoga postures with flowing movements and deep relaxation to build strength, create space and help prepare for birth and motherhood. Many women practice yoga for the first time during their pregnancy!
I was born in Canada, and moved to London over 10 years ago to work with some of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK. Outside of my yoga practice, I work for a National Charity and volunteer with WYSE International, a youth leadership development charity.
